We have had a few unseasonably hot days (high 30Cs) in Melbourne during the past month, but my crops have survived and prospered. Even when air temperatures are moderate the sun is still intense, and judicious use of shadecloth is needed especially from midday until 4 or 5 o'clock on some plants. Young seedlings in the propagators are especially vulnerable and must be protected if they are to survive.

EcoPropagators allow the gardener to maintain a reliable supply of healthy seedlings and cuttings throughout the year. They provide protection against insects, extremes of weather and deliver a constant supply of nutrients and water to the plants' roots.

Mid winter approaches, and its cold by our standards. The cool weather brings with it a fair amount of dew, which is keeping the ground moist despite the little rain we've had this winter. This is our first light frost and I hope its the last, but it might just persuade my apples to drop their leaves and go into dormancy for a while.

Its the first of June and winter is upon us. The weather has been quite mild for Melbourne at this time of year, but it was 4C when I got out of bed yesterday, and everything is slowing down in the garden including me. Here's a shot of my backyard. Its grown like topsy I'm afraid, and this is not the preferred layout. It used to be a largely ornamental garden with the clothes line fenced off, so the Ecobeds have been installed where the ornamental beds used to be.
