Managed to plant 1 Goldfinger banana and 1 super dwarf cavendish, both of which are meant to be good fruiters here. Around them went 3 Hibiscus and 20 or so Broms, including some Neoregelia Exotica Velvet and some Tillandsia species which I attached to a Manuka with liquid nails. To get everything growing well, a decent dressing of blood and bone and a sprinkling of Potash went on the soil. Then I finished weeding the Strawberry patch, fertilised that with the same mix and did the Blueberries at the same time. Picked up all the dog poos (not my favourite job!) and mowed the lawn. To finish, collected some Grapefruit for a fresh juice to welcome the kids home from school and biked down to the water with them for a look. Great day!
