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 Dianne,

 I have been getting information from this forum for the last 2 years. Finally pulled my finger out and decided to join. I have only been at my current place for the last 2 years previously had this place rented out and lived on a smaller block. I grew up on farms and a banana plantations as a kid and have always wanted to get back to that sort of lifestyle albeit close to the city for work purposes. 

Once again thanks for the welcome and I will try to contribute as much as I can.

BTW my avatar is of a few of my first crop of black sapote this year, my first and how I love them.

Regards Doug
