I like the Plum Pine avatar Melissa.

 I have two, 8 year old trees (from tube stock) which has not fruited to date. Although the spot they are growing in has been dryer over the past few years.

Good Afternoon Melissa, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF), I too love to grow and cook with Australian Bush Foods, perhaps we can swap some cutting sometime.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2016 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here, we are having a garden visit tomorrow 11th Dec if you would like to come along, Here is the GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR 2017 .. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas.  

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.

Place your business add here! ($5 per month or $25 for 9 months)
