SUMMER 2016-17, WHAT ARE YOU SOWING, PLANTING, PREPARING, DESIGNING-REDESIGNING FOR YOUR GARDEN

Posted on December 3, 2016 at 12:19 17 Comments

Well Summer is here. We have felt the brunt of the first storms for the Season, some of us left with a mess to clean up and others with some lovely rain added to their tanks. As we feel the extremes of Summer so do our Flowers, Vegetables, Herbs, Plants and Trees. Whilst some are very good at coping with the stresses of Summer others need help. So it's time to think about how we can help our plants along.

Mulching is important, as is keeping the water up. There are many forms of…

Taking up Dianne's theme...next week I turn water into wine and get the Walking Onions to run.

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.

At 10:27 on July 10, 2018, Sid Saghe said…

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.

Thank you Dianne!

Hi Dianne, Thanks for that lovely welcome email. I am just about drooling over your photos -  your garden and kitchen are amazing! I can't decide whether to explore BLF's pages more, or rush out into the garden and plant coriander and nasturtiums right now!

Good morning Dianne, thank you for the warm welcome. I look forward to getting to know everyone

Hi Dianne,

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!
