[quote="colin lister, post: 19465, member: 550"]lucky man,nice place[/quote] Thank you - we think we are lucky too. Downside is there's a lot of grass to mow, but that's not really a hardship all things considered :) The bush is nice - no need for landscaping when you're surrounded by natives. (y)

(y)[/quote] yup I agree, looks lovely! Not many natives here yet, just the ones I have planted partner surprisingly doesnt even complain much about mowing the lawns, takes him 2 hours on a rideon and he only does half... I think he like the peace being on the mower sans kids

[quote="Gwenda williams, post: 19468, member: 533"]yup I agree, looks lovely! Not many natives here yet, just the ones I have planted [/quote] We're a bit lucky on that score too, about 2 acres of our section is protected native bush - we haven't planted anything, it just grows... and grows... and grows. We are allowed to keep our cleared area from being taken over by the bush though, so gardening is mainly just a matter of mowing, and keeping the edges at bay... (but then there is the ginger, wandering dew, jasmine and so on to keep out of the bush)

ours was a paddock, very nice pasture (grows FAST!), and one solitary oak tree, about 40 years old. We only moved in in May but last count I have now got about 250 trees/plants, from natives to non-natives to roses to fruit trees to herbs to flowers, most have a lot of growing to do, although all the fruit trees flowered well, and the poplars (wider not tall ones) are doing fab too. Luckily we are only about 1 km to the selwyn river so loads of feeding for the bees

QUOTE] Hi Glenda, If I get any gardening done this year it will it will be a miracle, hoping that things will calm down now that we have finished doing our splits and once the bees settle down and make honey instead of wanting to make swarm cells:mad:[/quote]

[quote="kevin moore, post: 19444, member: 268"]Hi Bron, now we have two people with happy smiley faces [/QUOTE] Hi Kevin, what is there not to like about bees - they are fascinating. The kids in my class are extremely interested. Can't talk my man into letting me have a hive at school but I am working on it.
