Nearly the end of summer

Hi everyone,

I don't know if it is just because the weather has been so hot but I feel that there is almost a chill in the air in the early mornings??  My new job has kept me very busy but because of the massive reduction in travel time and later start, I'm able to get almost an hour of gardening in every day before work.  I leave the big, dirty jobs (whipper snipping and making compost heaps for example) for the weekend but can get watering, planting, mulching, harvesting etc done…

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.
