Welcome to the May Garden Club notes. Firstly we would like to wish all the Mothers out there a very Happy Mother’s Day. Our best wishes to you all and we hope you have a lovely day with family and friends.

Autumn is probably our favourite time of year in the garden. The really hot days are gone and so are most of the destructive gully winds, leaving us with cool nights followed by mild sunny days. Thus, the perfect time of the year for establishing new plantings in your gardens.

Welcome to the February Garden Notes. The weather is very unpredictable at the moment, reaching for the sunscreen one day and looking for a jacket the next!
