Spring in the Southern Highlands tends to truly happen in October but at least we can feel that it's almost here! Spring flowering bulbs are all popping their heads up adding colour to garden beds everywhere.
The Tulip Time Festival will be later this month and for the first time ever we will have a stall there selling potted Tulips to take home with you.
We've had a bit of rain and while it's not nearly enough it's good to know the skies still know how to produce the good stuff. Let's all hope it's a taste of more to come.
There is still time to prepare your beds for Spring plantings. If you are ready to plant now get shrubs and trees in. It is a little early still for many of the herbaceous perennials so give it a few more weeks.
