It's been a busy few months since Christmas in the nursery and garden at Scottsdale Reserve. There has been a lot of seed collected from our new seed area, which is now full of lilies, daises, blue devils, trigger  plants, twining glycine and native grasses, to mention just a few.

The gardens have provided us with seed as well and there has been seedlings to grow.

Varied other jobs were attended to, like weeding (again!) in the gardens and the grass needed constant mowing due to the wet summer.

I have been compiling various photos to show everyone the nursery and one of the new patch protection site, I hope everyone enjoys them.

Cheers,  Sue.
