About Me
Fairly new to gardening, but am enjoying the hobby. I'm mainly interested in growing vegetables to eat - with some success - and have also managed to keep alive a few bromiliads, callistemons and lilliepillies. I have some bio-char to experiment with but haven't yet decided on the experiment. I'd love to grow potatoes and strawberries (my attempts thus far have not been succesful) if anyone has tips or tricks.

Hi, thank you for your kind welcome. I'm in Waterford west. I only have a small garden but am very keen to learn about what grows well in this area and tips and tricks for better quality and yields. But mainly to meet more like minded people and gain new friends as we only recently moved here from NSW.

Thanks for accepting my membership.  I am in Redlands and like to grow vegies, fruit trees mixed with perennials, annuals and natives for the wildlife.
