Hello and welcome to July; a darn chilly month here in southern Victoria!
There is still many plants thriving in the garden and I have broad beans growing madly as well as various varieties of chinese greens. Everything else is in slow down mode.
For a quick look at the planting dates just scroll down. For my complete newsletter with the planting dates, star tips, what stars you see at night, and much more just clink on this link.
May your month be full of natures abundance and smiles!

Gazing out the window I can see the veggie patch and remember last month when I said I was going to have a word to the Nandinas to tell to colour up…..or else!
Well…. I went out and gave them the hard word and it looked at me and to my mind’s eye said “speak for yourself!” Somewhat abashed I retreated. Later that week I was wandering through the local nursery and spotted a white Erica who said to my mind’s eye…. “wouldn’t I look good snuggled up between the two Nandinas”.
Yes, yes and yes, … they do look marvellous and it does pay to follow ones inner voice as they are great sight with the Erica’s white flowers and spiky lime green foliage highlighting the reddish bushiness of the Nandina.
