Summer photos and protecting plants from the hot summer days

February 1, 2016

With an increasing number of 40 degree+ days in Melbourne’s summer, various  options are used in the garden to protect the crops from the harsh sun.

The most prevalent in the garden is mulching with pea straw and lucerne.
