New Growth

1 Oct

I love spring for all the rapid new growth that plants put on. When it warms up, but not so much that the plants are stressed.

My Australian native finger lime is loaded with flowers 

My new baby caper bush is actually putting out leaves

The overwintered capsicums have all woken from their slumber

If only just…

And the rhubarb is rapidly growing more and more monstrous.

The challenges are that the weeds are doing the same thing. The summer weeds, dormant in the cold are now springing back to life too.

Now is the time to be getting your mulch ready to suppress weeds and protect the plant roots from the soaring heat of summer.
