I wish I had of been able to make your garden visit. Hopefully I'll be able to make the next one.

Wow Dave very biblical! My mulch is just loads of tree mulch from a local treelopper. Think I am almost at 200cubic metres that I have spread out over the years. Each time I try to get about 150mm thick. This is breaking down and adding some organic matter to my sandy loam. I pull out any weeds as soon as they appear, not many sprout though.

Puts me to absolute shame.

Anyway: my question is what's the story of your mulch --seemingly so weed free. Ingredients? Thickness? Maintenance?

So much fruit! You must be a Frugivore!
I am reminded of the gospels:
"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruit. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
At least you do. I fear I should be chopped down.

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.
