The nursery is open today with seedlings to share.

My favourite green, Italian Bledon Spinach (technically a chard) - this is a relation to the Silverbeet. I have a bundle of seedlings ready to plant. This lime green chard has less oxalic acid in it than silverbeet and can also be eaten raw. Unlike Silverbeet it doesn't leave that strange feeling in on your teeth after eating it. Its a wonderful colourful species to have in the vege garden. We also have lots of YIlgarn seeds (our locally acclimatised seeds) available to plant. In Geraldton its time to get peas, carrots, bush beans, cauliflower, broccoli, mizuna, lettuce, broadbeans, winter herbs (parsley, dill, mints, coriander, fennel, oreganos, thyme, rocket, etc..) , annual flowers and onions,

Do you sell these as seeds??

Anybody interested in Henna leaves? We are pruning our trees this weekend and you are welcome to the branches and the leaves. They are free for the taking. 1st in 1st served. They can be dried, crushed or blended to a powder and used as a hair or skin dye. Used alone these are an orange/gold/brown colour dye. We also have seedlings available if you want to grow your own. Depending on how cold it gets in winter, Henna loses most of its leaves and bursts again when the weather warms up in spring. They usually grow as bushes to the ground, we underprune ours to grow veges beneath.
Nursery open Sunday 10.00am to 5.00pm.

Let your plants look after each other. Nursery is open today Sunday.

The big Marigold plant.
This year we are devoting part of our garden to African Marigolds. Our sandy soils are full of root knot nematodes who affect the growth of certain vege crops, here they mainly affect tomatoes, celery and beetroot. I have just read an interesting paper which describes one of the ways Marigolds protect these plants. It claimed that when nematodes attack the root of the marigold, the root releases ozone, a bio-nematicide thereby killing the nematode pests (Ogden, 1997).. Fascinating stuff...

We are open tomorrow Sunday. 10am - 5.00pm

We use marigolds for pest control! Bugs won’t go near them, or any plants they are next to! Wonderful things!

Might spread a few about here Julie although our tomatoes seem trouble free atm Lots of bother though from citrus leaf minor and ants are being a pain

Maybe the person who keeps stealing my one year old marigold plants from the community garden read the same article

Lisa Massey
