Garden blogs we love
I love to snuggle up with a book, but I’m also enjoying some great garden reading online. Have you had a look at these:
Glenmore House newsletter and blog
Mickey Robinson’s country garden near Camden, west of Sydney, is lovely: a pretty rose garden, perennial borders, productive orchard, beautiful kitchen garden and citrus trees in the chook yard. Her blog is fun and gives insights into her problem-solving techniques.
Lambley Nursery Garden Notes
David Glenn’s garden, Burnside, is at Ascot, near Ballarat, Victoria. It is a fabulous garden: borders display his plants to perfection. This part of Australia went into serious drought for 15 years, so David specialises in tough hardy perennials, which he writes about in his notes.
This is my favourite source of information about fruit and vegetable growing. There is a seasonal newsletter with a planting guide, a monthly garden calendar, permaculture notes and comprehensive information about all aspects of fruit and vegetable culture.
