Autumn is definitely here, producing lovely sunny days with cooler mornings and evenings.
The perfect climate for growing capsicums.
I have started a new herb garden against a north facing brick wall.
The shredded paper was padding for an object posted to me,
I decided to use it as mulch. Anything from straw to paper, helps to keep the soil moist
and stop your delicate plants from drying out too quickly.
To the right is a new male kiwifruit plant I finally purchased.
My 3 year old female on the left has been alone for a while
and kiwifruit need male and female plants for pollination.
I will remember to water this one.
Shopping for plants is like going into a jewellery store.
You have to try hard not to get distracted.
Well, not too much anyway.
So I found this really cute cinnamon tree ~ if it lives for just 5 years it will pay for itself.
... and this adorable macadamia tree.
Here are winter tomatoes raised from seed and planted in a northerly position
against a brick wall that retains the heat and give the tomato plants extra warmth.
My Tahitian Lime and Eureka Lemon trees
bursting with glorious citrus fruit.
Our next banana bunch, growing in size and strength.
Blueberry bushes, a Biloxi and a Misty.
They will cross pollinate each other and grow up to 1m in size.
I have potted them into bigger pots as I want them to grow bigger before planting in the ground.
I trust you have enjoyed viewing my garden
and I will do my best to keep everything watered and alive.
Please have a look at the other Garden Share Collective members gardens this month.
Buon appetito, Enjoy, Merryn.
