STEVES’S LATE WINTER SURVIVAL TIPS
5th August, 2014

After being inspired by the talk and workshop of a “Tale of two Steve’s” (hosted by Permaculture Blue Mountains and BMFC) I began to think about what goes on in the winter garden? At the talk, Steve Alton whose garden is in Katoomba, shared with us information about the weather and water issues that we get faced with in the mountains. He reminded us that water is essential for the life of a plant and that winter is our driest season. He also showed us a graph of the winds we get living in the mountains, showing that in every month we could get hit with 40km winds. August is the notorious windy month, so what are his tips for the gardens survival?
