Bay Leaf and Herb Christmas Gift | New Pot Needed Or Not? | What’s The Herbs? | Gardening

Palmyra,

Would love to pick your brains please.

Got a bay tree from mum for Christmas as I have made many attempts to propagate hers and had no success=p

Description says to put it in a hole 2 times the diameter for the current pot.

This is the pot I plant to use.

The pot I want to plant my bay Tree into. Internal Width: 380 mm Lengh: 375 mm Depth: 360 mm
The pot I want to plant my bay Tree into.
Internal
Width: 380 mm
Length: 375 mm
Depth: 360 mm

 

The interior diameter of the pot the bay is in is about 300 mm.. the pot I want to put it in is only 380 mm [Length] x 375 mm [Width]

So.. Would that suffice? Or do I need to hunt for another pot?

Also re the depth of the soil required.. currently it seems like the soil height/depth is 270 mm.

I am planning to give it 290 mm deep for the soil level. Would that suffice?

Thank you so much!

Wicking Bed 3 [Herbs] | Re-Use Box + Chairs + pipes + carpet + Wheat + pea gravel | Home DIY

I was given some seedlings from the Inspire Collective Meet up. And the herbs given were eager to be planted out. Here is the making of the wicking bed 3 for the herbs

Below shows how well the wicking bed been going on day 117.

Do not plant the mint in the soil/ground directly! It took over my whole bed and I had to put it in a pot in the bed.

Broccoli Grown From Seed Netted | Home Grown

After my other broccoli was attacked by the broccoli and white moths, I decided to plant my next batch of broccoli seedlings I had grown from seed in a netted environment.

I tried to use a finer net which doesn’t exist in Bunnings or Masters. Sooo.. I had to come up with another solution.

Seems like the white shade cloth is great for it! The end result speaks for itself;)

Here are the dishes I cooked with it
