Finding the continuing dry disheartening?

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Are you finding the continuous dry weather disheartening?  Is your garden (not to mention winter crops) suffering from lack of rain?  It can be a depressing time for everyone in the family but make the most of the continuing sunny days by getting into the garden.  Maybe you need to rethink your design and plant choices to better suit the current climate?

We have a massive range of books to help you get started.  Check out the wonderful selection of gardening resources on our catalogue.  There are many plant guides as well as more specific topics such as creating an organic garden or self-sufficient gardens. You can also borrow magazines such as Gardening Australia and Earth Garden which are full of helpful hints.

Children love veggie patches, it is a wonderful way to spend time with them and teach them about horticulture. To inspire your little ones check out A Patch from Scratch by Megan Forward.

It may rain one day and you’ll see your creation come to life!

In the meantime, please come along to our ‘Let’s Talk Gardening’ Session being held at the Moonie Library on Wednesday 26 June from 10am to 12noon.  Local gardening expert Gale McKelvie will be sharing her advice on gardening in the Moonie area. Bookings are essential! You can book online or by seeing the staff at Moonie RTC.
