Shop local for healthy garden gifts on Bribie Island

Autumn has already arrived in the Moreton Bay Region on Brisbane’s northside, with the weather bureau forecasting an extended winter season, as a resulting of the impending El Nino event in south-east Queensland.

Summer’s hot winds have put our home garden plants to the test and a few have died along the way. Now’s the time to condition the garden soil, ready for the cool season plants.

Bribie Island, known as one of the world’s largest sand islands, has formed over many thousands of years over a submerged coffee rock foundation in the Pumicestone Passage. Whilst this makes it an idyllic place to live off the east coast of Australia, the soil on most of the island properties is predominately sandy, also being confirmed as an acid sulphate overlay on the local council’s Planning Development online database. Be prepared to spend time & money first to enrich your soil. Just as building a house requires the foundations to be properly prepared and laid, so too your does your garden soil need to be prepared as a healthy foundation for healthy plant growth in garden beds.
