What a glorious weekend. I got there at 8am and had a lovely wander around while it was not crowded. Of course, I had to stop at Grandma’s cottage garden where I picked up 3 more (small) salvias - Denver, jitterbug, cupie doll and a dwarf Shantae daisy to go in the front garden that I just cleaned up
I also bought a whole bunch of seeds from Erica vale seeds including vanilla marigolds!!
listened to Phil Dudman’s talk on pruning. Here are the notes I took:
Mulberry - prune almost to the base of where branches start immediately after fruiting - November.
Citrus: bit by bit 20% every year. Fruiting wood on extremities so don’t go hard o r loose all the fruit.
Fig: winter prune when leafless. Train to frame and cut back to that frame every year (can keep 2-3 new growth for early breba crop)
Peach: early summer after harvest. Vase shape (open in centre) Remove ALL old Fruiting wood - beginning summer!!!! Don’t leave till winter.
Also bought some (mostly) shade loving perennial plants that give beautiful flowers
Did you go to the expo? What did you buy?
