Growing a fragrant garden
I love spending time outside in the garden. One of my favourite things about the changing seasons is smelling how the air changes as the different plants go into bloom. I like to have a good mix of plants in my garden that blossom and let off odours at different times so that there is a constantly changing mix of scents and colours to enjoy. Not only do people enjoy this, but it also helps attract beautiful birds and small native animals into the yard. This blog has some ideas for gardeners on great smelling plants you can use year round.

Although rainfall is abundant throughout most of Australia, some areas including southern Victoria and the northern and western coasts have recently experienced deficiencies in rainfall. Reminiscent of the 2015 droughts in southern and eastern Australia, these deficiencies underscore the need for thinking about how to sustain farming and gardening activities in the face of drought.
If you are trying to grow something in a dry climate, you may want to consider hydroponics.
If you've just purchased a wood burning stove, you may be wondering which type of wood is best for it. In addition, you may want to ensure that the wood you are using is healthy for you, your family and the environment. Here are four things to keep in mind when selecting firewood:
1. Hard Versus Soft Woods
The first choice you need to make is between hard and soft wood.
A push mower is good for smaller lawns and properties that aren't large enough to demand a riding lawnmower, and which don't have many hills and other obstacles that would make pushing the mower in front of you difficult and cumbersome. When shopping for a new push mower, you might be surprised to see all the options and features they offer, so note a few of those differences here so you can choose the best one for your needs.
