Mini Nursery started

I repotted all my ebay plants over the weekend. A total of 20 Nandina, 75 Dwarf Japanese Box, 15 Dwarf 'Strawberry Ice' Agapanthus and a Dwarf Bougainvillea from Bunnings. They should be nicely advanced by the time we plant them in our new gardens.

Plants on ebay

We are still waiting on drawings and engineers report etc so I thought I'd share my gardening ideas. I've been buying plants on ebay with a view to advancing them in the backyard of our rental in Illawong ahead of moving into our build which could be 9 months or a year away. Yesterday I potted 29 already advanced Clivias into 13 X 200mm pots which I bought on ebay for $24 and picked up.
The tallest are half fence height.

I have also bought 10 dwarf 'Strawberry Ice' Agapanthus which I have potted into large pots and ended up with 15 after separating a few.They were a bit more pricey, being a new variety at $39 + $13 delivery.

Yet to arrive are:
70 dwarf Japanese Box - $200 + $45 delivery,
20 Nandina - $30 + $13 delivery,
100 X 100mm pots and carry trays for Dwarf Japanese Box and Nandina which come in tiny 50mm pots - $60 + $13 delivery.

I already have a good collection of potted plants from bonsai to 2 metre Ficus Benjamina so will enjoy my mini Nursery.
