Water garden ready for the season

Last weekend thanks to our fantastic work day team we were able to muck out our rather neglected water garden. Now it is stocked with mosquito-eating goldfish and loaded with fantastic aquatic vegetables.

This year we’re growing arrowhead, Chinese lotus, water celery, water fern, a native edible water lily, an edible aquatic native hibiscus, and our native skirret (water parsnip).

Here’s a photo of the garden in its glory a few years ago – we’ll do even better this year!
