Gardening gives you so much pleasure and it's the little things we get excited about....... So pleased to see the first flowers on the Jostaberry while watering this morning....we planted this as part of a Fruit Tree Guild (or mini Food Forest) near our Community Herb Garden last Spring.... still young and will start fruiting consistently when it's three years old. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#jostaberry#fruittrees#communitygardens#food forest.

Interactive tours included the Bush Food Garden , Herb and Sensory Garden, Food Forest, the Chook Hilton , Worm Farms , Hothouse , Strawbale Garden and the Communal Plots.... thank you to the staff and students for a very enjoyable and enlightening day. It was a pleasure to have you visit. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#cultivatingcommunity.

A day for indoors at the Community Garden this morning with rain curtailing any outdoor activities so we spent the time grinding up the Chillies 🌶that we had been drying from our Summer Harvests...... the Long Chilli Joe’s and Thai Chillies were made into Chilli Flakes and the small whole Thai Birdseye Chillies were put into bags to share with members... our little gardener in training Daniel helped harvest the Globe Artichokes in the Herb Garden between rain showers. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#chillies#chilliharvest##chilliflakes#artichokes#globeartichokes#communityherbgarden#herbgarden

This Heirloom Purple Headed Artichoke is making a spectacular display in our Community Herb Garden at the moment. The attractive globe Artichoke has stunning purple and green flower heads ( chokes ) with beautiful silver blue foliage and was grown from seed @jardindefleur.seeds last year. We grow quite a few Artichokes of both the green and purple varieties along a line to act as a living barrier and windbreak to protect the Herb Garden from the very cold South Westerlies we endure over our Winters. These gourmet chokes are tender and delicious when cooked. #jardindefleurseeds#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#purpleartichokes#herbgarden#aplaceofwonder#marieseconursery#communitygardens#kitchengardens#organicgardenermag#gardeningaustraliamag.

Grapevine cuttings ready to plant out as a living fence at the Community Garden..... these cuttings have been taken from an existing vine and have been propagated in sand in the shade house until we were ready to use them...utilising something we got for nothing except a litttle of our time. It's a table grape, the label long gone and no record that we can find of the variety planted. This year is the vines third season having spent the last two years being trained up a post of a pergola next to a shelter in the centre of the Garden.... with a little TLT we might actually get a crop....fingers crossed. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#tablegrape#grapes#livingfence#grapecuttings.

September 4th. 2018 ....Time to get down and dirty at the Community Garden. Spring is one of the busiest times of the year in the garden and to get an early start on our planting we have started our seed raising for my own plot , the Herb Garden , the newly renovated raised beds, and the vertical Strawberry Wall that have both had some attention recently. It’s nice to see the days lengthening and the temperatures increasing. ... by late October , early November the soil should be warm enough to plant all the Tomatoes 🍅, Eggplants , Chillies and Capsicums here in Warrnambool. We can still experience a few cold nights ,even a frost up until then. In the meantime the leafy greens, herbs and flowers need to put themselves out there too. Our little team are seed raising a lot of asian greens, a few summer cabbages, cucumbers , a variety of lettuce, kabocha pumpkin, capsicums, eggplants , tomatoes, chillies, endive with some more to come later. The flowers planted are a tray of sweet pea seeds, globe gilia, marigolds, zinnias, cosmos, phlox, aster, bergamot bee balm , sunflowers and Korean mint ( agastache.) Most of the flowers are usually direct sown but we have a few issues with snails chewing emerging tips and birds scratching up seeds... in such a big space and it's hard to keep up with it all ...now it's just down trial and error!#jardeinlefleurseeds#lambleynursery#southernharvest#greenharvestseeds#diggersseeds#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#seedraising.

A busy time for the Students from the Warrnambool East Primary School today with a morning visit to the Warrnambool Community Garden. They all had an interesting morning collecting eggs from the Chook Hilton , checking out the Worm Farm , looking at the Seeds germinating in the Greenhouse and what’s growing in the garden plots. We finished the visit by making some little seed packets from recycled paper with a choice of Sunflower, Pumpkin , Sweetcorn or Climbing Beans seeds to take back with them to the School Kitchen Garden.... thanks kids ... see you this afternoon for Kitchen Garden. I did say it was a busy day for you. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#communitygardens#austcommunitygardens#gardeningaustraliamag#organicgardenermag#thehappygardeninglife#goodorganicgardening##gardening#growyourown.

Last day of Winter.....A new garden space for us to play in at the Community Garden... recycling some pallets for a wall of Strawberries 🍓 including some of the Alpine Strawberries raised from seed ( thought I ordered plants but ordered seeds by mistake...Oooops! )..... The raised beds have been replenished using the No-Dig method with layers of peastraw , coffee grounds , blood and bone and horse manure ( or anything that we can find that’s free)and liquid fed with unsulphured molasses. Seed raising next week getting ready to fill this space with seedlings for Spring plantings. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#communitygardens#raisedbeds#kitchengarden.

One of the nicest things about our Community Garden is sharing....Di , one of our Community Gardeners is sharing the seeds and a plant of Gomphocarpus Physocarpus a species of Milkeeed also known as the Swan Plant , Balloon Plant , Bishop’s Balls , Nailhead or Balloon Cotton Bush. We are looking forward to planting and making this a lovely addition to our Sensory Garden as it's a great food source for the caterpillars of the Monarch Butterfly...love the silky tufts on the seed pod . Thanks Di...#warrnamboolcommunitygarden#milkweed#monarchbutterfly #swanplant#swanplantseeds

Yesterday we braved the cold wet conditions to spend some time at the Warrnambool Community Garden. We met Stocky who was kind enough to show us around and help us with our planned bush tucker garden. Stay tuned for our upcoming Bush Tucker blog which has been a long time in the making.

We’re liking our Super Dwarf Sunset Nectarine Fruit tree , the newest addition to our little Food Forest. This little fruit tree has beautiful single pink flowers followed by deep burgundy red and green foliage , grows to height of 1.5 m x a width of 1 m ... this is an ideal spot for this little tree . Although it’s self pollinating we have interplanted this area of the garden with a Fruit tree guild or Companion plants to provide it with it's own little eco system of habitat and diversity. We have provided nectar for the pollinators 🐝nutrient accumulators , and mulch generators in the way of ground covers for the other fruit trees we have planted which include a Pomegranate, Dwarf Peach and the Jostaberry fruit trees. I'm not an expert but I'm learning as I go with a little team of volunteers...I will make mistakes but am excited by the diversity this area has provided so far....lizards and frogs have been welcomed by adding little bowls of water , bees, ladybirds and hoverflies have enjoyed the nectar of the flowering plants and we have even provided the habitat for a family of ducks to enjoy life away from predators like foxes. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#ecosystem#diversity#companionplanting#communitygardener#communitygardens#connectingwithnature#nodiggarden#diversity#gardening.

The Warrnambool Community Garden "Herbies Group " has had a very productive morning repurposing an old cast iron bath 🛀 and planting it up with Alpine Strawberries that were divided and potted up by some of our members during the Autumn.... other Alpine plants have been added to a border in the Sensory Garden. Mustard seeds were planted for a quick green manure crop in the Keyhole Garden Bed ...we also did some seed raising of a few Sunflowers 🌻including Dwarf ,Compact and Standard varieties from @copsleyornamentals for planting along a fenceline to make a very colourful border ...... we find the snails have a wonderful time chewing the emerging seedlings if we direct sow. Nice work all. #warrnamboolcommunitygarden#alpinestrawberries#herbgarden#growyourown#organicallygrown#communitygardeners#nodiggarden#strawberries#groundcovers

A group of us had a fun hands on day at a Pasta Making Workshop run by the Warrnambool Community Garden with the wonderful and lively presenter Kylie Treble from @theplaceofwonder.
