Brisbane north, Australia

Bio: I used to grow as much fruit and veg as I could in my small suburban yard. Gradually taking over all areas including the front verge. I kept bees, both honey and native and was learning to farm snails - found I couldn't kill my little friends and let them loose. I don't profess to be expert at anything. Gardening is a long learning process with many ways of achieving the end you want. I don't follow any one form of gardening but take the bits I like from the various forms around. Natural gardening would best express what I do. I follow nature. KISS is my motto. Late in 2016 my home, bees and garden were sold and I am yet to put down roots somewhere new. I currently look after other peoples gardens and pets as a FT house sitter.

  1. Hi there! I saw that you once posted about having nopal cactus, or prickly pear, I would really like to grow some in a pot of course haha but I’m having trouble finding a cutting, do you know anyone in the Brisbane area who has any? Thanks a bunch, love your page!


    1. Thanks Serena.
      Where are you located?

      I was growing my Nopales in a large pot which was tall and narrow and the plant would fall over during storms so I would recommend something broad and squat to grow in.

      I have just sold my house and the plant went to a friend. If you post a comment on Brisbane Local Food (free to join and no obligation to do anything) someone there will have a cutting, I gave so much of it away someone will have some. Let me know if you have any problems.


  2. I’m not sure if I pushed the notification by email button on my previous comment so just writing this with it on this time
