This blog is about my garden located in Melbourne, Australia, where summer heat and long periods without rain can make gardening a challenge. It is the gateway to a series of my blogs showing you how I deal with these conditions....John Ashworth 22/04/2017.
Latest Update 22nd March 2017. Beneficial Garden Creatures.
don't often get Lorikeets in my garden, but when the bottlebrush are in
bloom they descend on us in a small noisy cloud, and we enjoy their
energetic aerobatics for several days. They are our most glamorous
pollinators, and although their benefits to us are more aesthetic than
practical, my wife and I love them.
hard to love the creatures at the other end of the spectrum of
beneficial creatures in my garden, the micro-organisms. But they are
nonetheless vital to the wellbeing of my plants and I spend a good deal
of time nurturing them.
links below take you to the pages on my blog covering some of the beneficial
creatures I rely upon and the reasons for that dependence.
