  • Looking for something sweet to make for mum this Mother’s Day? Give our #MakeItMonday project a go with these adorable Teacup Fairy Gardens!

What you’ll need;
🌸 A vintage teacup and saucer (you may have this in your cupboard already, or maybe an op-shop find!)
🌸 Some light soil (Rocky Point Bonsai Cacti Succulent is perfect!)
🌸 A selection of small succulents (or any small plant you’d like)
🌸 Fairy garden ornaments and decoration 
How to:
1️⃣ Give your teacup and saucer a good clean and dry thouroughly.
2️⃣ Half fill the teacup with your potting mix, then arrange your succulents how you’d like, following by filling the remaining space with more potting mix
3️⃣ Give your planted succulents and potting mix and good spray with some water in a spray bottle.
4️⃣ Sit your teacup on the saucer, and arrange your fairy decorations in the teacup and around the saucer rim.
5️⃣ Enjoy! 💚 Projects like these are great to do on your own, or make a whole range of Teacup Fairy Gardens in a group! #RockyPointAU

  • This week’s feature garden is from Robert Edwards in Ballarat! #ShowUsYourGardenSunday

Robert says this is only a small part of the backyard, but with already too many plants for the space they have, they still buy more plants! 🌱 (We know the feeling well Robert!) If you’d like the opportunity to be our featured garden next week. Post a picture of your favorite spot in the garden and tag us @rockypointau #rockypointau 💚
  • 📣 NEW ON THE BLOG 
Celebration of May Gardening 🌸 "May is an exciting month in the garden. This is also the month that we celebrate our Mothers and all that they have done for us.

Mothers bring us into the world. They nurture and care for us when we are young and new. Mother’s ensure that we have the nourishment needed to grow and develop. They are there for us and help us through the seasons of life.

This is a lot like gardening...." Link in bio 🌱 #rockypointau
  • It's time to plant your Pea Seeds!

Peas are a great space saver in the garden - growing up, rather than out. Plant your seeds into damp soil, and then leave them for a few days before watering again. Consider stagging your planting to elongate your harvest too.

  • In season now are beautiful Pears! 🍐

  • They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.
  • It's time to plant your Viola Seedlings!

Viola's are heavy bloomers and now is a great time to plant out your seedlings. They love a good garden soil or potting mix with decent drainage and love full sun to partial shade.

  • Happy Earth Day! 🐝🌿🌼 “In nature, nothing exists alone.” — Rachel Carson, 1962 
The 2019 Earth Day theme is Protect Our Species; focused on the educating and raising awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.

All living things have an intrinsic value, and each plays a unique role in the complex web of life. We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species: bees, coral reefs, elephants, giraffes, insects, whales and more.

The good news is that the rate of extinctions can still be slowed, and many of our declining, threatened and endangered species can still recover if we work together now to build a united global movement of consumers, voters, educators, faith leaders, and scientists to demand immediate action.
