Hedging

The quest to reimagine our garden continues, with the planting of some more natives – this time around the pool area.

Flanked by the ubiquitous pittosporums, we have put in some Grevillea Olivacea and some Callistemon ‘Little John’ to screen the fence and provide some much needed flowers and nectar to attract bees for the vegies and fruit.

The Olivacea should grow up to about 8′ (2.4m) and the Little John will be a nice little shrub in front at about 1m.

And for those following along – here is the progress of the Tigerella and Black Russian tomatoes, and the Thai Chilli, from Diggers, in the side garden which used to look like this….

There is also an assortment of tomatoes to the left of this clump which includes Grosse Lisse and Artisan Mix. They are coming along slowly – mostly because the weather has been warm without the lovely rain we had at the end of spring.

It will be interesting to see what condition the garden is in when I get back from the UK and Europe in three weeks time! You can follow my OS adventure on my new blog.
