Im looking forward to the cucamelons doing their thing. Although they have been around for hundreds of years, I’ve only recently heard about them and managed to source some seed. Funny how they were all planted together but what a difference between the first one up and the last one just emerging from the soil. Always exciting for a gardener to find something new to them! #cucumelon #cucamelon #cucamelons #vegetables #garden #weirdvegetables #exciting #ihopetheygrow #homegrownhappiness #pleasegrow #homegarden #growingtoday #growyourown #healthyfood #igrewitmyway #littleplants #somethingnew #different plants #heritageplants #superfood #plantswithbenefits #growingforgoodhealth #thehappygardeninglife #kitchengarden #happygarden #ediblegarden

Winter means it's time for starting new projects, Gary and his digger have been helping us to clear this area today - despite the rain! It will be devoted to beds for unusual, scented decorative and heritage Daffs! Further down in front of this lovely curved wall (outlining the track to the kitchen garden) are rows of Daffodils planted in excess of a hundred years ago. They were laid out for cutting and are still used for that purpose today. It feels like quite a privilege to continue adding to this historical cutting garden, walking in the footsteps of our predecessors....sort of..... I'm sure if they'd had access to a mini digger they would have used one too! 😉

The “Wandering Jew” was given to my mother in 1965 and between my sister @audreyjonesrogers and I, we’ve managed to keep it growing. The pencil cactus has been in the Roberts family (my mom’s mother’s family) for 100 years. I’m so grateful to Laura Hensley for sharing it with me. The two African violets were given to me by my 91-year-old aunt and I treasure them, as well. #heritageplants #familykeepsakeplants

We’re open extra hours for the @festivalofgardens . 10-5 every day including CUP DAY. Our garden is one of the most significant large nineteenth or early twentieth century suburban gardens surviving in Victoria. .

Patchwork to Pickles, our Traditional Arts fair presents the talented @ilkawhite demonstrating the art of weaving in the craft tent at 12.30. More info via link in bio.
Ilka’s practice spans projects in textiles, sculpture and installation, video, art-in-community and cross
disciplinary collaboration. She’s exhibited internationally and her work is represented in the public
collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, RMIT University and private collections in Australia, U.K. and U.S.A “How and when to apply the technical ‘rules’ and how to deviate from them. The more I practice though, the more I understand how little I know, and the more appreciation I have for traditional and indigenous cloth weavers world wide.”

Here’s a closeup of the little heritage Hebe bush that we showed you last week, in flower all around the garden. Did you know that we propagate from our heritage pants in our nursery? This one is available at the start of spring. .

I was given a cutting off this Rosa spinosissima last year and am pleased to see it’s flowering. The original plant apparently came into the district with some of the early settlers #oldrose #rosaspinosissima #rosa #rose #roses #rosebud #flowers #inmygarden #apieceofhistory #heritageplants

Most babies are ugly, right?
25 cuttings of the elusive Mrs Pollock Geranium just arrived from the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens in Nova Scotia. They were released from their cardboard box and plastic wrap. Their leaves were cut off and stems trimmed. They were dunked in rooting hormone and buddied up in their jars. They have warmth, water, and light...now it is fingers crossed that at least one of them makes roots!
