It was another big day in local guerilla planting! 😉
I planted a Eucalyptus Nicholii for the sheer nerve of it. If it grows it will shade a bench council have installed. It’s a big ‘if’. But evidently I can dream.
Fine leaved creeping boobialla propagated in autumn.
Needless to say, plenty of ruby saltbush.
These plants are being added to a place where I have already planted boobialla, olearia and several varieties of saltbush. Some are coming along very nicely in this spot, and while a few are struggling, very few have been killed.
On the homeward trip, very little rubbish and a bucket full of weeds. The last round by the council poisoner resulted in several plants being killed elsewhere nearby (those I planted and some of Council’s plantings too). I have drawn the conclusion that I should target weeds growing among plants I would like to see live, for early weeding. And… I am still enjoying weeding and revegetating the neighbourhood, and the sooner I plant before the height of summer, the better the chances these plants will make it through high summer. Time to plant seeds!
