  • Today is the 'International Day for Biological Diversity' and the 2019 theme is; Our Biodiversity, Our Food, Our Health. 
This year’s celebrations of the International Day for Biological Diversity, on 22 May 2019, focus on biodiversity as the foundation for our food and health and a key catalyst to transforming food systems and improving human health. The theme aims to leverage knowledge and spread awareness of the dependency of our food systems, nutrition, and health on biodiversity and healthy ecosystems. The theme also celebrates the diversity provided by our natural systems for human existence and well-being on Earth, while contributing to other Sustainable Development Goals, including climate change mitigation and adaptation, ecosystems restoration, cleaner water and zero hunger, among others.

  • It's time to plant your Delphinium Seeds!

Sow your Delphinium seeds now ready for spring-time blooms. They can be transplanted with care, but it's best to grow them directly in-ground where you'd like them to flower.

  • Happy World Bee Day! 🐝 (May 20) 
Check out this cute bee-hind 😊

Australia's over 1,500 species of solitary bees do not store any honey in their little nests but only collect tiny amounts of nectar to feed their young.

However, the eleven species of social stingless native bees in Australia do make and store small amounts of a delicious aromatic honey. This honey has a delicious, more tangy flavour than commercial bee honey and is stored by the bees in small resinous pots which look like bunches of grapes.

  • Check out this adorable dragonfly garden art... Want to make one for yourself? Easy! Check out our #MakeItMonday below.

What you’ll need:
🌸 A 6 loop metal balloon whisk
🌸 Wire cutter/pliers
🌸 A couple of beads

How to:
1️⃣ Bend out two loops from the whisk, making two wings on one side of the whisk for wings
2️⃣ Repeat this on the other side
3️⃣ Use your wire cutters to trim the remaining top loops; one to form your antennae and the other for eyes. Thread some beads on as eyes and secure to decorate.
4️⃣ If you’ve got some extra wire, wrap it around the body of the dragonfly to use as a stand in your potted plants.

  • Today is Love a Tree Day!

Here’s how you can love a tree today (and everyday!) 🌳 Hug a tree – get out there and embrace you favourite tree. Trees have numerous health benefits to people including improving concentration levels. A hug is a great way to say thanks!
🌳 Get to know your local trees – Wherever you live, there are probably trees in your area. Take a close look at a few. There are so many amazing variations in trees.
🌳 Adopt a tree – Choose a favourite tree and make it your own. Take a photo every week and see how it changes over the course of a year.
🌳 Plant a tree - Planting trees is excellent for the environment, as trees absorb carbon dioxide and give out oxygen. You’ll feel great about beautifying your garden, as well as giving a home to birds and animals. If you’re not sure what type of tree to plant sounds like a good reason to head to your local independent garden centre to get some advice from their knowledgeable experts!
  • It's time to plant your Spinach Seeds!

Spinach is a wonderful crop that keeps on giving. Wonderful when sown during the cooler months, simply pick a few leaves at a time to allow the plant to continue to grow. It doesn't get better than fresh spinach straight from the garden!
