EXCITING NEW PROJECTS 2021

WELL WHAT A SEASON WE ARE HAVING -RAIN GLORIOUS RAIN AND WITH ALL THE DREADFUL DROUGHT BEHIND US (AT LEAST FOR NOW) i AM SURGING AHEAD WITH FRESH IDEAS AND PROJECTS !  My new earth bank- will be amazing-I am excited about the plantings- and will list all my new natives-on this page. Looking forward to keeping a Diary on this particular project. I am creating it mainly for our (little birds) it should be a safe haven for them- and the flowering plants for their nectar! But I imagine us sitting on the new deck- enjoying watching everything grow.  This all overlooks(Rocs)favourite paddock- so I intend to dedicate it to him!  we still miss him-but he is still here , his grave not far from here- he is still King of the Mountain!  (OUR BEAUTIFUL BIG BOY) ROC AGAIN . 

MY EARTH BANK!

MY EARTH BANK! - a labour of love-here are all the plants (Tubers) (pictured below) that I am planting & will plant -as soon as it stops raining! we have had over an inch so far over the last few days-and still very grey and more on the way! still gotta mulch & cover with hessian to stop any slip! looking pretty bare-have planted approx half! May 6th

  • BAROONDAH STATION BOTTLEBRUSH

    Looks great- a big bird attracter-low growing habit- got 3 of these- so should be gorgeous!

  • DWARF KUNZEA PARVIFOLIA

    Love this hot pink-wow! quite spectacular- the little birds and bees will love this I'm sure. All purchased from -(allnatives nursery) online. Fast delivery-very healthy plants !

  • WHITE LACE MELALEUCA

    How rare to see such a (white) flower and it really does look like lace! stunning small growing bush!

  • BAUERS GREVILLIA

    Got two of these beauties- low growing hardy-and very pretty -can't wait to see how they all grow!

  • LEPTOSPERMUM PINK CASCADE

    Just adore this little plant-so so pretty. and a feast for the little wrens and smaller birds! not to mention the bees!

  • THRYPTOMENE (Pink Lace Flower)

    Pink Lace flower-a real eye catcher and perfect for our little feathered friends- it flowers most of the year-and is prolific!

  • SMOKEY WISTRINGIA

    Love the grey foliage on this one have ordered 4- to spread out along the bank and give a nice variety-grey leaves are a great foil for the brighter-greener plants!

  • BEE HIVE- AND HONEY

    Bees are such precious little creatures-and any garden without bees is not a garden at all. We have native bees here on our place- but also other bees I think!

  • MELALEUCA

    Great pink- not sure if I actually have one of these- but it is on my wish list.
