G'day all.

Recently found myself fortunate enough to upgrade to a property with a bit of lawn and even came with a semi established garden which was in desperate need of a lifeline. I've trimmed back sold old woody basil, built up the bed, fertilized with manure and composted. Now I wait for the soil to appreciate my effort.

I'm very new to gardening and have never had anything stay alive more than a few weeks. I'm keenly soaking up everything I can from Mark's YouTube videos while trying to not be upset I don't quite have the space he has. I've also found a bit more space in the back yard and sources some IBC's to cut down into wicking garden beds which is a current ongoing weekend project. I've jumped on to take a look at what everyone else is doing and hope to lean on the knowledge of the other members and try to understand what can, could, and will grow in my area. So when it dies, I know for sure it was me.

There's a gardening guide by 'Gardenate', it's free online, put in your Zone and voila. I'm in Adelaide and my Zone is Temperate. If you are near Mark's area, you can also mimic what he is growing too.

As for IBC's, one of our garden friends, Rob Bob is worth a look...another Queenslander :)

G'day ArmouredAlpaca, Welcome to the forum. I too am in Brisbane. I have my Gardenate set to Sub-Tropical but also look at what Tropical has to say because it tends to overlap a little in my experience.
