My latest attempt to protect the plants that have so far survived in a patch of nearby public land is not a very extensive one.
Just one pennant that says ‘please respect the garden’.
I have tried to give it flutter factor by adding all the little triangles of eco-printed fabric cut from the binding on my last quilt. Meanwhile, I’ve embarked on an extended programme of propagating plants for the neighbourhood public spaces.
I’m trying out taking cuttings of this saltbush. We’ll see how it goes. I read honey could help them take root. I couldn’t see it doing any harm, so I am trying it out.
The main action is still creeping boobialla.
Pruned back and ready to go. I followed up by trying pricking out ruby saltbush. Fingers crossed this will multiply the effective number of plants from those that germinated late in summer.
And then I might have enough plants to try re-planting some of those that have been squashed by cars under my little pennant.
