Right next to the Northern Motorway, only 5 minutes south of Orewa and 10 minutes north of Albany and East Coast Bays.
August 1st 2015 The lambs are dropping like flies, daffodils are out and soon, once the frosts have finished and the ground is no longer waterlogged it will be Dahlia planting time.
What a wonderful plant the dahlia is. Plant a tuber this season and enjoy from that one tuber a mass of wonderful flowers. No other plant can compete for variety, form and abundance of flower.... the more you cut off the spent blooms (or for cut flowers) the more they produce new shoots and flowers. Its just like mowing the lawn in spring, mow it one day and two days later it needs doing again....similar with Dahlias. Pick them every two days (and they look better for it), or just let them do their own thing.
Our neighbouring city (15 mins away) is rapidly expanding its strangle hold with massive growth and land use change scheduled on our surrounding landscape. Commercial and urban development pressure is on with their associated rate increases, to move further out....oh the joys of being near the Super (in name only) City of Auckland. The neighbour on 5 acres is now paying $5000pa.... or $100 a week in rates. I would think a bit hard for anyone on a $250 pension,
