Busy Bees

What has been happening in the vegetable patch this month?©BMHPhotographyTheGardener’sNotebook2016The veggie patch has had a slow start to the spring season. It has been a tough few months for a lot of the plants due to the inconsistent weather. A majority of the vegetables and herbs have been slow to put on new growth, especially when compared to previous years. The tomatoes would usually have an abundance of fruit for this time of year here in Melbourne. It is only in the last 3 weeks that they have started to produce flowers.

However on a positive note the passionfruit and fruit trees are a different story. The bees have been busy pollinating all of the flowers and there is plenty of fruit starting to form on the trees!  ©BMHPhotographyTheGardener’sNotebook2016Over the next few weeks I will be giving all of the fruit trees a monthly feed with an all purpose fertiliser and plenty of water as this will encourage the fruit to form and have good flavour. As for the passionfruit I like to alternate between soluble and pallet fertilisers every month.
