"I would also love to know. We have scrub turkey problems, so any straw mulch is a huge attractor for them. I have planted bird seed in the past but I am not sure I was happy with the results?"

"It's worth monitoring, but that hedge should, once consolidated,'wick' the whole bed. That makes for a cheap wicking bed! Self sufficient in mulch too."

My verge herb garden

Posted on January 18, 2020 at 20:27 6 Comments

After moving in just over a year ago, we've been busy planning the long term garden and still have lots of our plants and fruit trees in pots. We really have to put in some retaining walls to help with the top soil run off and create some lawn for the little one. 

Anyway, we recently put up the front fence and today I planted out a bunch of things that was ready. I'm hoping to turn it into a community herb garden for our neighbours to also enjoy. …

Good Evening San, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). You are so lucky to be a beginner gardener. It's a wonderful pastime/way of life, growing your own Fruit & Vegies. Enjoy the journey.

Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2017 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. 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…..
