Hey guys!

I entered my garden in the local garden competition. The judges just left. They were either really pleased or just being nice icon_lol.gif . It's only a young garden, so I'm not sure I'll win anything but I'm still pretty excited.

Here's some pics.

Aww thanks guys.

dailey- We're classed as Sub-tropical, but our area has a very mixed climate. 2Km's to the west is rocky, dry and hot. 2Km's east are cool, damp tropical rainforests. We're 3100 ft above sea level, so we have a lot of mist as well and the fireplace is going for most of winter.

100? Wow that would have taken some digging!

Haha! I will be glad to help anytime, although I do not claim to know everything. Very bad with botanical names, unless it's herbs and I'm not too good with pests and diseases either.

your garden is gorgeous. Congrats on the win. I'm impressed, I have black thumbs and kill every plant I touch. I'm always amazed when people can keep their plants alive.
