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…

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!

Hi Dianne,

Thanks for the friend request! Re hosting a garden visit in September, a bit of info about our place... it is a duplex on a battle-axe block, so parking is on the street- however there is plenty of room. Then if everyone can just walk up the driveway and to the duplex on the right hand side. It is all flat ground, easy to get around and kid- friendly. Ourr little girl, Sophie, will be 2 by September)

We rent and everything we have in the garden is designed to be able to pack up and take with us to the next place. Having only been in Brisbane for 6 months I am still getting things going again, but hopefully by September there will be a bit more to see!

It is a very small block, but I aim to utilise as much space as possible. I have edibles in pots, some hydroponics and (hopefully by september) at least have made a start on the aquaponics. Also worms and native bees. The bees will be due for a split soon- perhaps we can do that at the Garden visit?

Hope this helps, let me know if you need more info. Cheers!

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 :-).
