I was very surprised to log in and see such a lovely welcome. I think I have a lot to learn from this group and hope I can share my own tips and ideas along the way. We have just created our first wicking bed, made totally from salvaged and reclaimed materials (except the soil). We are raring to go. I look forward to contributing where I can.
Hi Dianne, thank you very much for the warm welcome, I look forward to meeting the members. Garden visits look good I hope I can join you in February. A busy time in the garden at present after great rain.
Would love to get to know some other like minded members, but may not be able to make any of the up coming garden visits that are listed. Hopefully my time will free up a bit more in a couple of months.
Thank you Dianne for the welcome and all the information. Sorry it took so long to get back, I've been unwell. Definitely interested in some garden visits, though don't think I have very much to offer at this stage.
Thank you Dianne! I'm excited to do some visits - though this Saturday I have earmarked for the Garden Show at Nambour! Keen to get some good learning in, I'm only what I consider a level one gardener (only just able to keep things alive without killing them at this stage) so I have a lot to learn.
Thanks for the friend request! Re hosting a garden visit in September, a bit of info about our place... it is a duplex on a battle-axe block, so parking is on the street- however there is plenty of room. Then if everyone can just walk up the driveway and to the duplex on the right hand side. It is all flat ground, easy to get around and kid- friendly. Ourr little girl, Sophie, will be 2 by September)
We rent and everything we have in the garden is designed to be able to pack up and take with us to the next place. Having only been in Brisbane for 6 months I am still getting things going again, but hopefully by September there will be a bit more to see!
It is a very small block, but I aim to utilise as much space as possible. I have edibles in pots, some hydroponics and (hopefully by september) at least have made a start on the aquaponics. Also worms and native bees. The bees will be due for a split soon- perhaps we can do that at the Garden visit?
Hope this helps, let me know if you need more info. Cheers!
