    I figure as others are showing their place I’ll show a bit of our patch.

    I was lucky enough on another site to be given some hippeastrums so I will now have a lovely display in Spring.

    I still need to weed and mulch around them.

    They look good Judi. Do they get bothered by the frost? As you can now tell I know nothing about them except they are pretty when in flower. We are not too far from you and are just starting our garden and looking for hardy stuff. We have the orchard planted, some roses, lavender and the first veg garden and some native trees and shrubs. Now looking for fillers and smaller pretty plants to add some colour and texture. Cheers

    I have put this pic elsewhere but thought I’d also put it here.

    I love my brassicas and I have cages over all of them until the cabbage butterfly are gone the frost usually takes care of them.

    chrisk the frost doesn’t kill the plant just burns the leaves off mind you we have had temps as low as -15 C in the depths of winter, those pics were taken just after we’d had -0.7 C.

    I can list you the hardy stuff if you want, can probably even give you some.

    I’ve been wondering what your triffids are? Welsh Onions, shallots?

    I have been told that they are “Japanese Bunching Onions” they flower like a beaut but I have never in 35+yrs had a one set seed.

    Here is a puzzle “Where’s the insect”?

    Took the photo this arvo, there is an insect there on my plum tree, so very hard to spot.
