Weird or Wonderful? This unique succulent called Crested Fence Post would work better as such, except it's an incredibly slow grower. But, it does make a great accent plant! It's like living sculpture! I'd love to see more of these! 🌵🌵🌵Shown: Pachycereus Marginitus F. Cristata
Getting a start on one of our extensive Maintenance Lists for a valued client. So far we have moved 6 tonnes of sand into the sandpits, almost 10 cubes of mulch ( tea tree & pine bark chip) into the gardens , replaced and installed new a bunch of various plants. Cleaned out & Replaced mesh over drains, and recycled some blocks into veggie gardens. Still plenty to do!!! #southboundanddown#propertymaintenance#mulching#gardening
The aerogardens are back in full swing for the winter season around here. We’ve got all kinds of random stuff growing in them - tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, and herbs galore.
This particular garden has parsley, kale, and baby purple bok choy - which grows surprisingly well hydroponically!
I’m so grateful for our little indoor grow setup during the winter. 🌱💚

A nice big clump of clary sage starting to flower. There are about ten plants here. Such fun to grow, and different from other sages in that the leaves are not aromatic. A big, hairy plant that is also quite hardy and can be grown from seed in Autumn or Spring. #clarysage#gardening

I thought it was time to explain the unmown patch right next to the front gate at the nursery in Kallista.
Its full of weeds (dandelions, cats ear, clover, sow thistle) and celery flowers and I'm sure some people might be thinking its looking a bit messy.
But this messy little spot has a purpose, it is providing much needed habit for bees and bugs. These bugs are often beneficial in our gardens but thats not the only reason for this space.
All our mowing and poisoning has left very few places for bugs to just be bugs. Hang out, eat, rest, mate, and buzz around generally.
This summer I will chuck more seed in there as it ripens on my plants in the nursery and increase the diversity of flowers.
Last year I noticed that the more flowers in the nursery garden and the more different colours of flowers, the greater the species and different colours of bugs.
Bugs are our friends in the garden, any bug, including ones we think are "bad bugs" like aphids.
I believe aphids are a keystone species in our cultivated places and should be treated with deep respect and gratitude for being the food of ladybirds and their larvae, hoverflies and more.
To keep aphids at numbers we can live with grow lots of food for adult bugs with lots of tiny flowers - chervil, parsley, rosemary, queen Anne's lace, fennel and more.
If you have a patch of lawn you rarely use or a verge please consider not mowing it and give our bugs some habitat.

Sundays are for smooth jazz and wreath making. 🎼🎶 I hope you enjoy this tutorial. This year's wreath features dried citrus, herbs, bunny tail grass, and nigella pods. What do you think? 🌿 I used the bottom branches we trimmed off our Christmas tree, and everything else was grown with love in the garden. If you are interested in learning about growing everlasting flowers, herbs, or how to enjoy and be inspired by the #gardenlife , I hope you'll subscribe to my blog and grow with me. ❤🌿👩🌾 Link in profile. Happy Sunday!
Sometimes you gotta be selfish to be selfless. Caring for yourself first so you have the energy and mental space to care for your community, family or partner better is an approach I've been working on this year. Doing more things I enjoy just for me like gardening and fermenting alongside meditation because training your inner world to be kinder and more forgiving is just as vital. All aspects of my life are becoming richer and more fulfilling the more I remember to do these things 💛🙏🏽
I love watching the garden change from season to season out my bedroom window.
My mom and I are already working on our plans for next seasons garden and we will be ordering our seeds soon.
We would love for you to join us. We will be hosting a garden planning, planting tips and seed ordering workshop at the farm, Friday January 10th from 10-12pm. The cost of the workshop will go towards our Renown ministry projects in Africa. If you would like a evite with all the details send me a message.
You may have seen this around lately and wondered why? The Agave, otherwise known as the “Century”plant as it was thought they flower every hundred years (15-20 is closer to the mark) dying after flowering. This is totally normal as the Agave is monocarpic. Just cut off at the base after flowering and it will reshoot and the process will start over. It’s just the last hoorah for this plant and their way of saying goodbye! #gardening#queensland#lawnmowing#mooloolaba#sunshinecoast#agave
