Hi Sandy :)

The Polytunnel sounds like a great idea. You can keep the moisture inside and the humidity up.

Don't hesitate to speak up if you see some plants you would like. People here are very obliging on the whole.

All the best

Welcome to BLF Sandy :)

Mt Isa hey! If you see anything you like plantwise on the BLF website just speak out won't you - most people are only to happy to post things.

We'd be interested to hear how and what you grow in Mt Isa also.

Happy gardening

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.
