“In the space of two weeks, the nursery has gone from a state of concern for being out-of-water and out-of-space to hold ageing tubestock into winter for delayed planting projects… to a state of concern for soon-being-out-of-stock as those field planting projects jump back into high gear before the start of winter.” says Shane Litherland, Manager of the Gympie District Landcare Nursery.
The late summer rains experienced in South East Queensland recently (March/April 2021) are the cause for rejoicing for anyone wanting to get plants in the ground before winter.
Neil and I have been wanting to plant trees in the ground for the past two years, but lack of rain has kept them in pots.
And whilst we are still way below average rainfall for the year, the rain received during late March and early April should be enough to allow us to get our Brachychitons and other plants into the ground before winter. Now we just got to find the time…
Wish us Luck and Happy Growing.
