Our Wonderful Frog Bog

Candlebark frog finally croaks!

Our frog pond has been a number of months in the making – maybe up to a year, however, the results from the efforts of our volunteers are here for you to hear. Our frog seems to be very happy and we hope that he / she finds a friend soon!

Just newly created.

Growing nicely

Collecting Seed at Candlebark

Party Bags used for Collecting Seed!

At Candlebark Nursery, gauze party bags have a whole different function to normal. Rather than being used to contain lollies, we tie them onto flowering stock plants, wait for a couple of months and then collect the valuable seed which we can then use to propagate new plants. Maybe this is some thing you could do in your garden if you have a plant you are wanting to propagate. We have also used old stockings or tights for the same task but find the party bags are most effective.

SEED CLEANING EVENING A BIG SUCCESS

First Seed Cleaning evening a big success.

The first of our seed cleaning nights on Monday 23rd January was a big success with 12 volunteers attending on a very warm evening. There was lots of cleaning, chatting and eating over the 3 hours that people were at Candlebark Nursery. A big thank you for all the help given to us. Our next evening is Tuesday February 21st. If you can join us to help with processing our collection of seed from 6pm through to about 8.30 – 9.00pm, please send us an email or leave a message on our phone.
