Moving House

Well I moved house, and took the old garden back to bare ground/lawn. Quite sad really, but wil be exciting to start new garden. Here are the bare bones. The plan is to plant all the fruit trees I have in pots in the ground I will probally put the lemon tree out the front, mulch around all the trees to a 1m and then fill in the bare beds with herbs and salvias. Then out the back plant trees around the edges, fill the beds with perennial vegetables, I plan to grow a passionfuit over the chook shed. I am going to get 4 potato crates and have them cut in half. That will make 8 beds 1m x 1m that should be enough. I will keep the lawn, and mow the grass to make compost. Will make another compost heap in the corner near fruit trees. They need pruning, mostly just to remove dead wood. There is already a hazel tree, but while they produce both male and female flowers they are self incompatible so I will buy one and plant. Exciting but hard work ahead, however I made lots of mistakes with the last garden, so should be easier. Check this site for future references.
