Busy in winter

We have so much happening at the moment.  Winter is half way through and we are powering along.  This is a pic from a recent visit to Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens in Thailand.  Great spot, and it’s warm.

Just finished the Rose and Salvia prune, there comes a time when you have to forsake the endless flowering of the Salvias in order to promote growth for next season, so now is the time!

New gardens; been working on plans for some great courtyards in Princes Hill, Brunswick and Reservoir, all seem to have a common theme; informal, cottage, with a mix indigenous and exotics and very full planting.

And, a completely different look for a stunning new front garden in East St Kilda.  The house has technically been renovated but it is more like a complete rebuild.  It’s a totally modern design so we’re going to be using lots of orange to contrast the house facade;  glazed pots, Stretlizia, Kangaroo Paws.

Then just to fill in our spare moments some Landscape Plans for town planning in Coburg, Doncaster and Eltham.  I think we will have Melbourne covered by the end of winter.

Looking forward to an icy weekend.
