What is Manuka honey and where does it come from?
Manuka honey is made when honey bees forage on the nectar of the ‘Manuka’ bush (Leptospermum Scoparium) which is found in New Zealand. The word ‘Manuka’ is the Maori translation for this species of tree, but in Australia, Leptospermum is colloquially known as Jelly Bush.
Pictured below is the beginning of our secondary planning at Myall lakes, as we prepared for a new planting after the success of our initial planting.
These photos depict the new damn, the beginning of a new garden and even our first leptospermum blossom!
Once the plants are in the ground, they require minimal effort and, for the most part, we can sit back, relax, and wait for them to mature.
Like any plant, the Leptospermum, although quite durable, still requires rain to stimulate healthy growth. The images below show heavy rain that fell during the growth of Leptospermum planted at Boolambayte, which dramatically assisted the progress of these plants.
The other images depict various stages of the plants’ growth, which wouldn’t have been made possible without the Gather By team and volunteers – like our golden retriever friend!
