Event Description


Don't know about the rest of you but I'm having GV withdrawal with the break between visits for July and August.

Let's squeeze one in at my place on SUNDAY 9TH AUGUST AT 10AM.

You've all been to my garden before - flat ground, easy street parking, bees. Lot's growing at this peak period for the year - hopefully I won't have eaten it all by the 9th!

I may or may not mow due to the amount of self sown goodies coming up in the lawn...ok, I'll probably mow! but don't be too shocked by the untidiness if I don't.

Children welcome but must be supervised by parents at all times.

Please bring a small plate of food or drink to share and any plants, produce or seed that you want to share, swap or sell.

RSVP required for the address to be sent closer to the date to the email address you nominated when you joined.

Late attendees welcome. Message Lissa or phone on the day for the address.


It's easy. Read the blurb HERE at the Garden Visit Group (see menu top of the page) and contact Lissa.

Lovely Rob :) See you both soon.

Hi Lissa, Claudia and myself will be coming along this morning, thanks and see you there.

George - got your SMS. I've sent you a message with the address. See you tomorrow.

Shouldn't be a problem Phil :) The plants usually lose all their leaves through winter but this time they didn't. They grow easily from cutting.

Comment by Phil on August 4, 2015 at 17:57

I'd be keen too. But I don't want to raid your garden too much Lissa!

I suspect they are one and the same. If no one else brings cuttings just remind me and we'll get you some from my garden.

Thanks Lissa.  I probable have the name wrong.  It’s the one that taste like Peas.  I got a little at a past GV, but only one little stem is growing. See you Sunday.

I have some Sweet Leaf growing Michael if that is the same thing. Others might also bring cuttings.

Comment by Michael Hoff on August 3, 2015 at 9:06

I am after some Sweet Bush cuttings if anyone has some they could spare I would be grateful if they could bring them to Lissa’s on Sunday.

Good advice from Elaine Phil. Just bring what you have around to share and take home whatever is left over at the end.

Good that you can come :)
