Fran's journal on his beautiful Grevillea promted me to get out and take a photo of mine, the photo shows two plants in a pot which I grew from cuttings three years ago!  Three year's ago I did not even know what a Grevillea was!  I was out walking and saw the Grevillea growing in a public place and I thought it was a type of conifer!!!  I really liked it, took a few pieces (because it was huge!) and stuck them in!  I was amazed when they took AND when I saw the flowers come and worked out what it was!  Or maybe someone here told me what it was!!!!

So very easy to grow from cuttings!

I have not written here for a while, my new garden is still quite like a field and now after all the rain of the winter I found I have some serious professional drainage to put in over the next few months. I am on a hill so I never thought I would have this problem but the water from the hill is running under my garage and could affect the foundation and of the garage and the house.  It is a huge job with huge money, I have had a number of experts to look at it and there is no easy solution because of where the water is coming from and going to - so that is why it is costly!  We are talking about bringing in 100 tonne of stone!  Alot of my garden will be a mess for some time so all a bit daunting but has to be done!  Don't want the house to float away!

No doubt will be posting photos here of the destruction when it does happen!
