More natives and help for biodiversity in our garden

16 Jun

We have also started to dig up the top end of our front lawn to plant a variety of natives (30 to date) either gifted from the birds, from cuttings taken on my plant propagation course and 3 purchased from Kapiti nursery on Otaihanga Road.

We planted between the natives with lettuce and silverbeet (both in colourful variations)

The ground has been covered with some of the newspapers we have been saving and mulch from the garden.

As at 20th May with newspaper and mulch

We have used some rocks from a garden in Waikanae on top of the mulch to provide a basking and hiding place for the skinks in our garden and created a rotting log pile for bugs and skinks as well.
