"Thje Shambles" Spring approaches, new projects

The whole of the ground beneath this Cassia fisula and the Tabebuia next to it needs to be regardened before spring.

Several new plants were added and a couple replaced over the weekend

Stenocarpus "Doreen" near wishing well
replaced Grevillea "Caloundra Gem" near Gatehouse
replaced Rondeletia amoena near gate and a group of thriving Camellia sasanqua

Prumnopitys ladei or Black Pine is establishing well near Blue trellis garden and is a much safer bet than Wollemia nobilis which hated our rich soil and wet conditions at times.

Plans advancing well to renovate our 4 bay car garage to better compliment the style of the house and garden
