I’m slowly clearing the house yard of scraggly and out-of-place plantings. I’ve had for example, a continual stream of happy people collecting tubfuls of aloe vera; a plant or two is great but a 4 x 3m patch is overkill!
As a result, we’re slowly filling spaces with suitable natives, and we’re also uncovering some hidden gems. What a joy to find these gorgeous orchids up by the side fence. I’d love an ID if anyone is an orchid expert!
Next on my list (#WIWL) is about 3 truckloads of forest mulch but some cooler weather is also needed before I attempt to spread it. Its hard work out there this time of year!
