Garden Visit this month will be with one of our regulars, Gayle D at Bridgeman Downs.From Gayle:Garden is part habitat (natives, pond) and part edibles - fruit and vegetables.  Bamboo in pots.

It's very windy. It's a cut and fill site so clay like concrete in 2/3 and clay like dust in the other 1/3.Flat garden…See More

My focus is sub-tropical veg - things which will grow well here but aren't traditional to our palate.I have only been gardening edibles for about four years, so still learning myself. Every season is a new experience.Shade available under carport and you might like to bring a chair for comfort. No stairs except into the house…See More
