Bunya nuts to give away

Megan, we have several Bunya Nut trees and can give you some nuts at the next garden visit. This is a bumper years harvest so we got several large cones as the picture shows. They grow into very large trees, also as shown, so don't plant the seeds unless you have lots of space. Mary- Anne and Colin at Dayboro have some trees as…See More

Profile Information

About me:
I garden on a 5 acre block of terrible soil. Therefore most of my gardening is done in containers where I can control the growing conditions. Old baths, laundry tubs, pots, PVC pipes, above ground wicking beds. I like experimenting with new growing ideas.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
Logan Food Gardeners
I am interested in:
growing all veges and fruit trees, finding out what to grow, where and when.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Information, Community Involvement, Gardening Help
What I am looking for:
Information, Products and/or Services, Plants or Produce, Garden Materials, Events, Community Involvement, Gardening Help

Drying out again

Posted on August 8, 2017 at 8:50 25 Comments


How are things at your place right now in the garden? I have noticed the garden changing - drying out for a while now with no rain to help. The difference between raised beds which are in  full contact with the ground and my containers which are either set up as a wicking bed or simply separated from the ground e.g. sacks, baths, laundry tubs, etc. is most marked. A few weeks ago everything was flourishing, there was moisture in the ground and  watering needed to be minimal.…

My Palagonite experiment


You may remember that I planted out two identical "Rouge De Marmande" seedlings, each in a wheelie bin with identical growing mixes, except that in 1of the bins I mixed in an amount of Palagonite mineral powder as well.
