Companion Planting

Companion Planting is an age old practice of Planting Plants within close proximity which will Benefit other Plants, either by giving off a scent or chemical that will repel harmful insects.They may also be grown to entice Beneficial Insects that will help rid your plants of Nature's Nasties. Another way these plants may help is by returning goodness back to the soil.

Good Morning Lorraine, Welcome to Brisbane Local Foods (BLF). Here at the top of the page, you will find many GROUPS to join. One is the GARDEN VISITS, 2016 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. We have members who grow many different kinds of Gardens, Permaculture, Aquaculture, Wicking Beds, Traditional and many more. The GV's are usually held once a month. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, seeds, knowledge as well as a good chat and a lovely Homemade Morning Teas.

We have many subjects of interest, if you have any questions I am sure we would have a member or site available to answer that question.

You may like to go into your page and change the Pea Leaf Avatar for one of your own, it makes it a little more personal and as soon as we see your own Avatar we know who it is. Please enjoy BLF.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
