Yep I tracked Dave down early in my soil improvement journey and the vetiver I got from him have made a huge difference already!

Ah yes, the very unloved blog. I've finished working for now but still never seem to have time for it! I'm looking forward to learning and sharing with the local experts!

Hi Andrew, thank you :)

I will be making a couple of your lady beetle nesting houses tomorrow!

That was so useful. I see there are some lady beetles in my garden (since the rain) and would love them to stay a while.

Cheers, Bobbie

Thanks Andrew,

I appreciate the welcome and looking forward to connecting with other gardeners as I've only been living in Brisbane a year and am really glad to have found your site.

 Hi Andrew thank you for the welcome.  I just watched the video tour of your garden after the recent rain, what a difference some rain makes!!

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.
