Pruner (November)

Garden Notes. Saturday 26th November 2016. Crush eggshells in the basil pots to deter snails. Find dead rat under ferns behind water tank, its belly alive with maggots: cat Obsidian’s work. Cut 150 cm lengths of branch for Banyule green waste bundle collection this Wednesday: four kinds of pruner, the long-arm cutter, secateurs, saw, and bare hands. Collect jacaranda seedpods from paths for propagation: first blue flowers appear. Snip pinot-coloured suckers from climbing roses. Transfer succulents into sun-and-shade positions, after weeding the rainy weather weeds. Clear gutters. Witness Eastern rosellas in the ramshackle wattle: rare sight in this hillside garden.
