As I’ve mentioned in an earlier post Mr Iced Vovo and I have been working hard in our new garden clearing out unwanted hedges and large plants to make way for natives, fruit trees, a Japanese inspired feature garden and eventually some raised vegetable patches.
We have pretty much finished the front transformation. In the back we have planted an olive, quince, nashi pear and fuji apple down one side that we are making our edible section of the garden. Once they get beyond the twig stage I’ll upload some more pictures. We are waiting for the local nursery to get their supply of fig trees for us to make our selection to finish off the fruit trees we wanted to plant.
On the other side of the back garden we have planted a range of natives for cut flowers, some ground cover plants and some just for a little prettiness, and we transplanted my precious Wollemi Pine from its pot into the ground. (See An ancient plant with new hope)
Here are some pics of what we have planted so far:Out with the old very large corylines that blocked the entrance and in with a range of native Tasmanian plants and a Strelitzia for a splash of colour.
