We have made big changes in the back garden
We decided to plant some green manure in the cleared areas
to rejuvenate the soil ready for planting out.
As we will be putting roses in here it can grow and then rest until
the cooler weather.
These were the tree ferns which had suffered badly in the heat wave
and although they have come back quite nicely,we decided to take
them out and put roses in here
We advertised the tree ferns on Gumtree and they sold
They are going to a good home in the hills where they
will be cool and protected under trees.
We are going to dig in blood and bone and lots of mulch
to get ready for the roses.
Beans growing nicely and this year covered in red flowers
Last year they were white
The capsicums are doing well
I left these plants in from last year
and they are still producing
The dwarf beans are coming up nicely too in the seed tray
These ones will be yellow
Herbs in pots doing well
I read on Pinterest that you can cut the root from a stick of celery
and plant it. This is the result when I tried it. Amazing
The apricot tree in a barrel,I grew from a stone
This is 3yrs old now. Should be fruiting next Christmas
Capsicums,tomatoes, silver beet and spinach
I think this is a pumpkin
It's come up from the dish water we throw on the garden
This palm ( I've forgotten the name) is in the way of where
the roses are going,so we've transplanted it into a pot
This rose "Clair Rose"
will be transplanted into the new bed
It is getting too tall for its pot
A new climber we planted in September last year
I'ts nearly to the top of the arch and so pretty
The old bay tree keeps on keeping on
A bit of tidying to do here
This space at the side of the house is ideal for veggies
We've taken out old palms here to extend the veggie garden
Well that's the garden organized again
Can't wait to plant the roses.
Have to wait for some cooler weather though.
I hope you're enjoying whatever you're doing this weekend
