    Couple of weeks ago (the early August wind storm in the outer east of Melbourne we had a rather large tree come down in our yard

    Took quite a bit of cleaning up...

    our wood stack has doubled in size, we are trying to work out who to leave it too in our will..

    I do like them, I hedged with them, but they were very patchy and were extremely inconsistent with how they grew, the way they grew and how they would just die.

    I've got another fenceline that I've done with Callistemon citrinus and they're proving to be slower growing but giving a far better result, so I'm not sure if I will leave it clear and let the grass grow there or redo it again with the bottle brushes.
    Cheers

    So now Iíve got a low black fence around it which is too high to reach over. If you want to walk around it go right ahead, Iíll get a better camera shot.

    At least they could have stolen something that wonít die on transplant!
    Earlier this week someone stole 3 bromeliads out of the garden bed under my council tree, they were nice round architectural type brom's, they left the other more free flowing types!

    New turf went in a week or 2 ago, along with a rainbird controlled automatic sprinkler system. Very happy with the results, but I think I killed my offsider!

    Another job to do in spring if you have cycads is treat them with "Success Ultra" for caterpillars/moths. I try to remember by thinking "September is for Success" but ended up doing it in October this year.

    For lawn grub, black beetle etc., I've found Acelepryn GR to be the easiest and most effective. Best spread by fertiliser spreader in August/Sept, here in Qld. It's a once-a-year treatment and safe to use, too.

    Is there kryptonite in the turf?
