I've been watching your videos for a while and finally realised I could join your forums. I have recently built a passive solar house on a hectare which was mostly weeds that I'm gradually transforming into productive garden and natives. The biggest problem I have is 6 large poplars that have very invasive roots but are the only trees I have until the ones I have planted grow

G'Day and welcome.

Good luck with the transformation of the patch.

Welcome. I am in Collie, so almost next door...:confused:
You have a nice large block to use there, I envy you, but understand your problem with the poplars. Dada loved them and I remember them growing up, trying to mow the lawn, the roots got bigger every year almost like Morton bay figs. I am sure you will find a way around it, but maybe hear them some raised beds and next spring put your pumpkins in there. Everyone says you need lots of sun, but this year I found that my pumpkin was planted in the sun but rambled into the fruit trees and the best pumpkins were under the apple tree and hanging in the cherry tree. :eek:
Anyway, good luck and have fun.
