1st fruit from my 2 yr old Dwarf Irwin Mango Tree

Posted by Kylie P on February 28, 2015 at 22:30 0 Comments

Chuffed!!!  I wasn't expecting fruit this early.  Dear little tree only developed 2 fruit.  I netted them very early and ate one mango yesterday (in a coconut cream/chia seed/mango pudding).  Ofcourse, I put this early fruiting down to the good work of my native bees!! …

I am doing some guerilla gardening with a friend in my local park. Can anyone help with seeds or seedlings for fruit trees like custard apple, black sapote, avocado, pecan, cacao or any other interesting fruit tree. If you live near Algester and want to get involved please let me know.

Successful native bee hive split

Posted by Kylie P on February 23, 2015 at 10:59 0 Comments

Six weeks after splitting my first native bee hive, I am comfortable calling it a success.  I was a bit worried that both hives were too quiet at first, so we stacked and swapped the hives every night for 6 weeks.  They both seem strong enough now so I am slowly moving 1 hive away.  Always good to have a 2nd hive as insurance in case you lose one (so I am told).…

Share house for rent

Posted by Colin Westwood on February 18, 2015 at 8:51 1 Comment

I am looking to share my house with between one and three people.

You would need to be lean and green, and yes, that means NO herbicides or pesticides are to be used on the premises.

As I will be away traveling in SE Asia for around half of the time, I am looking to find someone who can look after the house and gardens and help me to pay my bills. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please let them know. I will be away this trip, from May 13th until September 5th.

"Hi Trinette, yes that is a great idea. Will have to wait quite a few years for some results, but it will help preserve the Bunya nut. Aren't they pretty rare these days? And avocado would be great too. Thanks :-)"
