Spring Burst

Spring came a little early to the Hunter this year, with warmer than normal temps in late August, and plenty of sunshine hours in early September, we have plenty of new growth and many flowers. I timed the application of Terra Firma correct this year and this has helped with the good growth patterns. Most plants have masses of new growth.

The clover had grown very healthy this winter, with some heaths being over 40cm tall, this attracted many, many bees, both native (pic attached) and European. When the plants where in full flower, i slashed the clover and most of the bees moved up to the flowers on the plants, perfect timing for a successful mass pollination. I know what i will do next year!

There was also quite a few frogs around helping keep control of the ants and pests, without the need for any chemicals.
