  • The last of the #yucca #prunings have now gone to a new home 😄. Such a resilient #plant - these had been lying on concrete in the sun for 3 weeks, but will now grow into new healthy plants! #gardening

    With Christmas approaching, mistletoe may be a part of some conversations. While its not really for the garden, I still think the are an amazing plant. Hope you find it interesting.

    If you are able to pick up in Brisbane, I have some of these yucca cuttings to give away. Just send me a message if you are interested. Sorry to all sour friends elsewhere in the world. Perhaps we can get some cuttings sharing happening elsewhere as well 😀

    You have seen our yuccas before, but they continue to impress me with just how much they grow in their current location. Here is the latest video - pruning these yuccas to clear a bit of space on the footpath, beside which they grow:

  • iCultivate replied to a discussion, Water Issues

    I am wondering if there are also any license costs for accessing the artesian water - having a bore? This may also be something to factor in to your thinking. Overall though, I really your thinking. When water availability is a real problem, we do need to be imaginative about firstly, how to reduce the amount of water we need to use - drip reticulation is a good solution, and secondly, how do we ensure that as much as possible ends up being available to the plants - not lost by evaporation. I assume you keep everything well mulched.
