Hi Trinette, I think I only have one survived.. I am preparing a mini banana and paw paw circle and thinking of transplanting the surviving one there next weekend... I would like to get a couple more dwarf ones for the circle but I am not sure whether I should wait till spring, or do it now ^^... so much to do in the garden, a few hours on the weekend is not enough!!!
Oh no, I can't believe you'll be away :( You will have to do a blog now to tell me all about how your seeds are coming along - nothing happening here yet... think I'll have to plant with the baby hothouse - bother what a waste of seeds!
Glad you had a good time - did you end up going to the expo.. and if so was there enough time to see anything - hopefully I will get there one year surely!
I did some planting on Sunday too, but not very much in the scheme of things - still have heaps of empty beds but am waiting for the seeds I planted the week before to come up. If they don't by this weekend I will have to make mini greenhouses and plant them directly.
I can't comment on your blog - it's doing something weird, it thinks I want to flag it, not comment on it? ning problems - so i'll be here instead
those expensive designer bags just have a twist tie incorporated in the top of them - maybe just some garbage bag ties would do the trick nicely? also maybe use waxed kitchen paper - it would be water resistant (again this is basically what the designer ones are made of - you might need to be good at origami though)
Thanks Trinette, I have locked you in for March - I look forward to seeing your new garden, don't forget to mention a working bee if you want a new bed or something... many hands make light work!
When it gets closer (or when you get a chance), please create an Event with the date that suits you best so people can keep it free. Personally I don't like to add my address, so I message those that RSVP with it a few days before.
Finally found contact details for my 'fruit tree man' that I used to get plants from at Beenleigh Markets.
