Planting Veges at the Nursery.

Day 3 of Blogtober, and today was a nursery day.

For my day job, I am lucky enough to work in an indigenous nursery. It is really interesting work.

As we are all keen gardeners, we often pop a few of our vegie seeds onto the seed trays alongside the Mellaleucas and the Atriplex.

The last few seasons we have gone a bit crazy with it. Pooling seed orders from Diggers, mass plantings etc.. My slightly excessive nature may have something to do with it.

Here are some we planted earlier, and some from today.

 A nice misty spray at regular intervals does wonders for germinating seeds.

A workplace that sows together, grows together.

Here is our lovely boss Richard, who we have well and truly corrupted with mass vegie plantings. Also the lovely Ada, who dropped by to help us plant the seeds. 


Some of babies from last year seem to have re seeded themselves. 


  1. e've been growing vegetable seeds here too. It's very exciting for little boys to see them germinate and grow.

  2. Looks like you're having fun there. :) I'm sorry to say I wouldn't do well there as I seem to kill plants.
