    Hi there,

    I've been watching SSM Youtube channel for the last few months, and I thought I'd join the forum as a means to pick the brains of more capable gardeners than myself. I'm pretty new to gardening, having only started in the latter half of 2018. I started with a few herbs, tomatoes, and berries, I've since gone onto growing some ornamentals, namely roses, and lately I've had a go at growing some chillies and garlic. Living in South East Queensland, I get to enjoy longer growing and flowering seasons for certain things due to the warmer weather, but conversely there are limitations on other things that cannot be grown due to not being cold enough. You just roll with it...

    Anyway, I've attached some random photos of things growing
    in my yard.

    Cheers

    with your title I thought you had put fish heads actually in the garden.

    Welcome to the forum your gardens look awesome.

    Hi there FishHeads.
    Yes, I was also expecting to read you were using fish heads to make your soil more fertile.
    It's a great way to do it if you have access to enough of them.
    Keep doing what you are doing because by the looks of those photos it's working!

    Thanks for the welcome! The name's a reference to the Barnes & Barnes song of the same name, not so much to horticulture. The garden is flourishing at the moment; the warm season has lasted for an unusually long time, and as a result my roses are still budding and flowering when they should be having a rest. Hopefully it gets much colder soon, because they're due for a hard pruning; one of them is almost 8 feet tall(!). I realise this forum is mostly about edibles, but I can't help doting over them from time to time.

    Beautiful garden you have going. I haven’t got to the fish heads yet but sure look at my garbage different now. I now know what to do with my extra chicken eggs. Great ideas are abundant here. Enjoyed your pictures.
