Hi Matt-I think I spelt warratah wrong. I didn't mean the plant. They are a type of metal post that is easy to push into the ground and have slots that you can attach netting to. They are good for making portable fences. Probably availiable from farm supply places.
Hi Matt, that will be great. I hope I'll be there this Wednesday - I've had to give the last two weeks a miss because work has cropped up that I couldn't move. It's in the Mercy Parklands grounds. If you go in and down to the right, it's kind of in the bottom right corner of the property. 8.30am - 12.30pm. See you there! Cheers, Catherine
I am so envious, my sweet peas are way behind yours - they're about a foot tall and no signs of any flowers yet. Don't you just love the scent? All my lily of the valley are in full flower and smell divine.
