Thanks everyone who turned up and donated time, plants and sweat.  Sorry I didn't have enough time to spend with everyone, but I and all the new plot holders certainly appreciated your efforts.  Thanks team.

My boys go along most of the time... this time I didn't bring them because I wanted to help garden.

Personally I love having any of the kids there Joanne, and yours are charming - gardening should involve the whole family.

Had a lovely morning, thank you to everyone. Came home with heaps of wonderful new seeds :) and had a good "gardening" chat that I don't get at home.

It was great to meet everyone today... I will know to leave the boys at home next time...

Thanks for all the seeds and the advise about lowering the ph on my raised bed...

Thanks so much to everyone who came to the Garden Visit, it was great to see so many people donate time and plants to this great community garden.

Yeah, I know.  Dick Copeman (and I) have registered us with BOGI.  When they know more about what they're doing, we'll either go there in March, or they may be sending out teams to help replant gardens.  I've also spoken to Graeme Crombie, so we're plugged into that event, whatever it turns out to be.  Thanks.

Jacqui, BOGI is having an Event in March and all members are encouraged to plant up big for those who lost gardens in the floods.

Sorry you won't be able to make it Tracy - I'm sure your plants aren't pathetic - they have to be better than nothing which is generally what we have now.

No, unfortunately the Bmag article used photos I took last year, haven't seen it yet.  If you're passing this way (you can drop them off anytime) or know anyone coming, we'd love any plants you can send us.

Sorry I can't help out, my daughter has a birthday party to go to that day.  I had dug up some perennials and herbs from my garden for you, and started cuttings and seedlings - but honestly they are pathetic so probably you wouldn't have wanted them anyway. 

Great article in bmag - if that was a recent photo then I'd say the replanting is already a great success!

Took me 3 months to get it. One of my regular suppliers at the West End markets sourced it for me, sorry don't know where he got it from. I know it's a tricky one, but it's still on my wish list. Cost me around $30 from memory too - bloody thieves ): so your link looks like a fabulous deal by comparison.
