Gardening Australia

Postby LLK » September 12th, 2018, 7:50 am

Hi all,

This Friday, at 7.30 p.m. on ABC, Gardening Australia will be featuring a segment on Native Bonsai.
Should be interesting!

Thanks for the tip-off Lisa. Any idea who it is?

It's a rerun of last years episode on Marcella's garden. Worth another look though - she has some wonderful trees.

I thought the whole hour very interesting, the way it was given to native plants and gardens. An incredible variety! That garden in Toowoombah was breathtaking. I loved the saltbush protecting the lettuce. Too much to list, really. It's fantastic how much good reporting can fit in an hour when there are no ads. Thanks, ABC. :aussie:

Thanks for the link. I had missed this thread and just watched the short 8 minute episode.

Excellent collection. If Marcella exists on this forum - a tip of the hat in your direction. Well done.

I went to last year's Vic native bonsai show - I'll have to go again and indeed, if I can find time, perhaps I should be looking to join that club too.

I am learning to love native bonsai. There's room for natives, exotics... bonsai and penjing ...in this amateur's collection. Actually there's not - my courtyard is not big enough but I'll get creative. :palm:
Tending bonsai teaches me patience.
