SUMMER 2016-17, WHAT ARE YOU SOWING, PLANTING, PREPARING, DESIGNING-REDESIGNING FOR YOUR GARDEN

Posted on December 3, 2016 at 12:19 17 Comments

Well Summer is here. We have felt the brunt of the first storms for the Season, some of us left with a mess to clean up and others with some lovely rain added to their tanks. As we feel the extremes of Summer so do our Flowers, Vegetables, Herbs, Plants and Trees. Whilst some are very good at coping with the stresses of Summer others need help. So it's time to think about how we can help our plants along.

Mulching is important, as is keeping the water up. There are many forms of…

Thanks for the BLF friend request Diane :-)

G'day Dianne, thanks very much for your warm welcome. I have to be honest that it's my hubby Clay who is the green thumb in our family, I just tell him what I want planted and then enjoy the fruits of his labours (literally, haha). Lovely to meet other native bee enthusiasts here too. The GVs sound really lovely; Clay and I would love the opportunity to come along and learn from others and see the variety of gardens around Brissy. We might even be brave enough to share ours sometime in the future too. Thanks also for your tips for the website, I'll spend a bit of time and get to know my way around. Looks like there's lots of 'our kinda people' here :-).

Thanks Dianne.  I am working my way around the site before going back to work.

Hi Dianne, Thanks for the welcome. We are a 3 generation family and bought the property with our daughter, son-in-law and baby. It was established with the fruit trees and we are now trying to learn how to care for them and grow as much of our own food as possible. I have almost completed the chook shed so chooks will be arriving soon. I have also started building some wicking beds.

We will be joining some of the groups and the Garden Visits looks very inviting. Hopefully we will have something to share.

Cheers Clive
