11 March 2019 • Autumn organic garden - sub tropical

My wife and I really enjoyed Peters workshop. It was great to work through the plants that are suitable for our local region and local climate. Sharing and hearing stories from other gardeners and how to remedy issues was very helpful. To see Peters garden prepartion process’s, the planting plan, what companion plants go where, how to optimism the planting layout and step through the benefits of this style of readiness was very helpful for how to set up our new garden. There were lots of opportunities for asking questions and the discussion was always interesting. The afternoon tea was delicious and my herbs thnhat we potted have sprouted already.
