AROUND THE GARDEN

I would like to start by saying thank you to all who came and supported EVRG at our Autumn Spectacular day last month. The timing was perfect as the garden was at its Autumn best with so many fantastic displays of colour in all directions and has definitely been a photographer’s delight! A lot of prep work goes into making the day a success and with our wonderful crew that we have on board to do just this is just amazing, so a big pat on the back to you all.

Autumn is a great time to be out in the garden here in Tassie. Not too hot or cold, can rely on a little more from the rainfall to water everything as well as it refreshes lakes and waterways, and might be lucky enough to find a few mushrooms to cook up a feed with. Autumn jobs may consist of planting out spring flowering bulbs in mass numbers to create that wow factor. Bulbs may include daffodils, dutch iris, hyacinth, ixia, freesia, tulips, ranunculi the list goes on and on. Pick a spot with light, well drained soil or plant straight into pots which can be moved to wherever you like and whenever you like.
