Greetings my fellow enthusiasts,
This is Dash once again. An update on the garden and the birds
On bulbs –
A huge thank you goes out to all those involved with the winter bulb dig. 1000’s of bulbs went out the gate with very happy recipients in the car. Lots of cups of tea and great gardening company, we bulbies are a cheerful lot indeed. I have really enjoyed meeting you all.
The summer growers are coming into growth now. I will be sending out a list for these for you to choose from and get back to me.
As some of you may be aware I am selling some of my bulbs on eBay. As some of them appeared on there when I sold off the winter collection I thought I may as well do the same.
This has allowed many folks who could not get to the garden to obtain bulbs for their collections. I am not sure if there will be a bulb dig on the summer growers yet. I am waiting to see how many come up.
Here is a link to my EBay page : https://www.ebay.com.au/usr/dashgeoghegan
I will be listing more in due course.
Happy Gardening Everyone.
On Birds – I have destocked my property and presently am not selling any Guinea fowl or Araucana Chickens.
I have sent my Guinea fowl and equipment to these two wonderful folks.

I wish you all the very best for the season ahead.
Ps. this newsletter will still be in circulation. I’ll let you know my next project. Perhaps you will want to be involved in that too.
Winter – 03.06.12: The frosts have arrived on the lowland. Fortunately my property is above all but the heaviest frost line. The birds are locked into a shed each night. I have observed that due to condensation, water falls into the tank every night due to the heat from the 80 or so birds.
Bulbs – 31.5.15: Currently adding bulbs to the shop. The cart is up and running. Any problems please click ‘problem with my order’ asap so I can rectify.
Birds – 27.5.15 : Getting ready for spring pairing and breeding. Colours being used this season are pearl, lavender, silver & cinnamon.
Eggs and chicks in some of the above colours will be available from late spring onwards.
Web Sites & Store – 16.07.15: What a past few weeks! I had all the site loaded up and ready to go when all of a sudden the site got hacked and a piece of bad coding brought the site down. I am steadily rebuilding the site now.
I have separated the shop from the this site to lighten the load on scripting. My Bulb Garden at www.mybulbgarden.com is currently being uploaded with products, a revamp of the shop I had on this site.
