Woad in Canberra
I planted some woad (Isatis tinctoria) in my garden in early March. It is still thriving, larger but staying low over the winter. I've put a cover over them to make sure my family don't bury them with leaves.
When I planted them I added blood and bone mix to the soil and in late April I mulched the site with green lucerne hay.
