Geraldtons best kept secret.

Good Morning Geraldton peoples. I am not sure about this cold, but one thing I know is the winter vegetable garden loves it.
We have grown a few special fragrant herbs this year that you may be interested in if you want to repel snakes from your garden.
Many years ago, I visited a Permaculture project in Gaborone, Botswana where local Permaculturists had set up a demonstration site with gardens around a hut/house. This was unusual here as typically the people who lived in these huts would keep the ground clear (no gardens) and swept clean in order to detect and manage snakes. This project was to show locals how snakes were repelled by Impatiens and other fragrant plants.

This year we have grown these fragrant herbs that grow extremely well at our farm and may be one of the reasons we haven't seen snakes in our food gardens in thirty years.

- Blue Lagoon Rosemary - a weepy form with a blue indigo flower,
- Rue - Jackman blue - a small compact plant with striking blue-grey strongly scented foliage
- Sage - grey foliage with lilac purple flowers
- East Indian Clove Basil bush - Hardy 1.5 m green perennial shrub with clove tasting leaves.
- Lemon Grass - 75cm
- Rose Geranium- 1m
- Vetiver Grass - 2m
- Mints, peppermint and ruffled
- Wormood - 1/2 -1m
- Sage - 75cm
- Palestinan oregano/Zaátar 1/2-1m

Open Saturday and Sunday 10-5.00pm and by appointment during the week. Phone Johnny on Mb 0458381628

Excellent advice Sally We used to do the same in Sri Lanka.

Do you sell the vetiver as well? I was looking at getting some from over east.
