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…

Companion Planting

Companion Planting is an age old practice of Planting Plants within close proximity which will Benefit other Plants, either by giving off a scent or chemical that will repel harmful insects.They may also be grown to entice Beneficial Insects that will help rid your plants of Nature's Nasties. Another way these plants may help is by returning goodness back to the soil. Many of these plants may also be used to make Teas to spray your plants with, or the leaves used in the Compost as an activated.See More

Would love to get to know some other like minded members, but may not be able to make any of the up coming garden visits that are listed. Hopefully my time will free up a bit more in a couple of months.

Good work Dianne, there's a lot that goes on behind the scenes, such as phone calls, organising GV's and just getting gardeners together.  Thanks for your efforts in gardening.

At 9:11 on March 27, 2019, Elaine de Saxe said…

Well done, Dianne - totally deserved :-)

Congratulations to our first featured member!  Director of Garden Visits and all things Events.  Top work!

Taking up Dianne's theme...next week I turn water into wine and get the Walking Onions to run.

Thank you Dianne for the welcome and all the information.  Sorry it took so long to get back, I've been unwell.  Definitely interested in some garden visits, though don't think I have very much to offer at this stage.

At 10:27 on July 10, 2018, Sid Saghe said…

Thank you Dianne! I'm excited to do some visits - though this Saturday I have earmarked for the Garden Show at Nambour! Keen to get some good learning in, I'm only what I consider a level one gardener (only just able to keep things alive without killing them at this stage) so I have a lot to learn.

Thank you Dianne!

Thanks Dianne for your warm welcome into BLF's informative community...looking forward to exploring the site and hopefully being able to contribute in some way in the future :)

Hi Dianne, Thanks for that lovely welcome email. I am just about drooling over your photos -  your garden and kitchen are amazing! I can't decide whether to explore BLF's pages more, or rush out into the garden and plant coriander and nasturtiums right now!
