Okay. I can't do the 13th as I have a Grandparents morning tea at my Granddaughters school.

Had a good morning a BLs place.
Started with a cuppa then a walk around the garden picking which plants I was interested in.
Thank you BL. They are all potted up and so far looking happy. :D

I hope they all work out for you.

Bubba has your new dam filled up yet with all that rain a few weeks ago?

It has, and more so.
The gully connecting the various dams has been flowing like mad.

We had our first inspection by the Land For Wildlife guy today, and the good news is that the creepers I was told were exotics aren't. They don't need to come down at all. In fact he thought the place was in pretty good nick. There's only a few things we need to take out.
I don't think he was too impressed that I've planted a Rainbow Gum though. He's strictly an indigenous native enthusiast, but that comes with the job.

We found out that once a year all the certified properties get a choice of 300 free plants, nesting boxes, or gardening equipment. You can also apply for a grant for any major work that needs doing.

We've had a re-think on the Rainbow Gum. It's going to get HUGE.
It's found a new home at the Maleny Botanic gardens, or it will once I get up there to lift it.

They grow 6 feet (1.8 m) wide and over 200 feet (61 m) tall.[3]
That's a big tree.
I was surprised they would grow in Maleny as they are more tropical.

It's probably pushing them a bit, but they should survive with no frost. One of the commercial growers is producing them at Baringbah, and a nursery at Forest Glen is stocking them now.
