The month of May

We are still in a gentle state of early autumn, 21C during the day rarely dropping below 11C at night. Having to puff Derris Dust all over the things that the white butterfly seeks out (in the mornings when there is a bit of dew). Things like the tender stem broccoli which are growing amazingly well in these conditions

A fortnight ago

It was great to have my blog mentioned in the online version of NZ Gardener Magazine ( check out this Mags4gifts NZ gardener magazine )
