Open this very crisp Sunday. Time to dig deep into the cupboards for those winter clothes!
If you grow a winter garden you may want to try some of out heirloom seeds. We have been acclimatising these to the Geraldton area for the last 25 years.
Many vegetables grow best when planted directly into the soil rather than into seedling trays as they are susceptible to transplant shock. The main ones to sow direct now are: Beans, peas, broadbeans, garlic, potatoes, carrots and any grassy grains such as wheat or barley. Also the herbs, coriander, dill and fennel.
Our planting calender for gardens out in the open in the Geraldton area can be downloaded from our website drylands.org.au/seeds/

Open 10am-5pm

Sunday is open day!
Just to let you all know we are getting to the end of our tubestock this year and now mainly have larger white bag stock. As Naomi, who was responsible for our propagation has moved on, we decided to focus on raising larger stock in white bags while we get on with our strawbale buildings. (the first is a training workshop room).
See the photo for some of the benefits of white bag stock.
Open 10am - 5.00pm Sundays
