Our summer has been very dry and hot. The garden was looking rather forlorn. Because the garden is so large, we had to confine our watering to our new plantings. The Prostantheras (Mint Bushes) were a trifle wilted, especially the Prostanthera lasianthos plants.
In this 4th week of February everything changed. In the course of three days we received 53 millimetres of very welcome rain. Plants are revitalised, our house tank filled and there is run off into our dams. What more could we ask.
