The Raid

Today my friends Dad donated more to gardening efforts than a kick starter project could ever hope to achieve.
Chris and Trish are moving out of their awesome home and today I was let loose on the garden…

Chris filled my car with buckets of nutrients,  compost and castings plus a foam box of about 10000 worms!

His garden was so awesome I was a bit overwhelmed. …

I took some cuttings of many different Hebes, and a white hibiscus (I think I messed this up- I took ‘softwood’ but think I should have taken  a ‘heel’ in the cutting.

Chris has amazing Helebores! So many patches that are flowering like crazy- beautiful greens and rust colored varieties.
I was so overwhelmed I forgot to dig up couple of clumps. … hopefully i might be able to go back in the he next few days and take some clumps. 
They move out this week so I may have missed my only opportunity 😦

Helebores or not, Chris’s contributions will give me enough cuttings and supplies to help create a new patch here at the flats and help make more people smile:-)

Thanks again Reardon Family

Pics tomorrow of worms and cuttings being planted out. ..

Introducing the ‘Ork’

image

The Ork is a single tine gardening fork- and is probably the most useful garden tool ive seen since the ‘bottle top water’

Dont bother trying to find an Ork on the shelf at Bunnings…. my mates dad buys a normal 3 prong fork and cuts off the F he doesn’t need.
I had the pleasure of using the Ork while raiding Chris’s garden today.

In the pic above, the Ork is sitting on a bucket full off worm castings acquired in the raid 🙂
