Welcome to Permablitz Melbourne!

Permablitz #183 – Clayton

The weather gods gifted us with a beautifully sunny winter day that allowed the troops to get into action bright eyed and full of smiles, concluding with my favourite thing of all, PLANTING! And a group photo of course!

Cape Gooseberry

Cape gooseberries have more antioxidants than goji berries, broccoli, apples or pomegranates, and contain twice the vitamin C of lemons. And they even come naturally packaged in their own paper-like wrapping!

Borage (aka Starflower)

Popular companion plant Borage is one of the most frequently consumed wild plants foods in many Italian communities, and is also consumed as a vegetable across different Spanish, Cretan and German regions.

Polyfaces winners announced

We recently had a great Guild Session with Isaebella Doherty of the Regrarians introducing the acclaimed Polyfaces film – and we had so much fun, we held a competition! All people had to do was...

Save our Citrus!

The backyard lemon tree’s survival is currently under threat from a tiny pest that has reached plague proportions right across Melbourne. But we can stop it!

Finger Limes

Finger limes are a delicate rainforest understorey tree in SE QLD and Northern NSW where they can grow to 10 metres. In Melbourne – not so much!

Sage

From the same family bringing you mint, rosemary, thyme and lavender to name a few, sage has multiple qualities and attributes that have been recognised and utilised for millennia.
