Looking after ourselves

Re: Self care by growing a garden

Mum wanted to get me a tree for my birthday so yesterday we called into a nursery and purchased a deciduous magnolia 'genie'. Feeling just a little bit blessed.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

I like that fence @Adge 

Get on well with our neighbours but would like that on 4 sides to hide behind.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

Mr Darcy filled our neighbours green bin with a pile of weeds that I had accumulated as it is bin collection tomorrow morning.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

The last of the noxious trees in our yard have now been removed. Mr Darcy has already filled our green bin post kerbside collection.

Pumpkin seedlings and a miniature yellow pear tomato seedling planted out today.

@MissP 

This is our gardening thread, would love to hear of your gardening adventures.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

What were the noxious trees that you removed (if you know) @Darcy?

Out of interest...

We get lots of Brazilian Pepper trees (Schinus terebinthifolia)(weed) popping up here.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

There were perhaps 4 cotoneasters, a couple of privets, 5 smaller trees that were possibly a snake bark maple, an ash that had self seeded about 30cm from a cabbage palm, an ornamental plum that was growing in the power lines. There were also 3 trees and a few non noxious shrubs that had been planted too close to house and pathways.

Re: Self care by growing a garden

Wow that sounds like a big job (getting rid of them).

Cotoneasters & Privets I'm very familiar with, from NSW (not so much in WA).

We get a lot of weedy Wattles (acacias) here in WA - from NSW & Vic.

& weedy Eucalypts (Gum trees) from NSW, Vic & Qld.

They're all quite invasive, in natural bushland.
