Combating too much rain - 8 top tips
. Tips for the gardener on how to cope with lots of rain.
Native grasses and friends. An exciting thing is happening in the world of Australian plants. Wild species that have tantalised gardeners in the past are now being improved to create a diverse palette of new varieties that offer all kinds of advantages. In particular, the necessity for water-wise, low maintenance gardens has inspired interest in plants that can be used as ground covers that will not only suppress weeds and erosion but also look fantastic.
Bower Beauty is a compact form of Acacia cognata that makes a stunning foliage plant all year round. It has graceful weeping foliage on a low and mounding shrub, and it is delightfully dense. New growth is bronze coloured, giving an added foliage bonus. Small ball-shaped flowers are a secondary pleasure when they appear in spring. Prone to root rot in humid climates, it is at its best in the southern states. A great easy care plant for low maintenance gardens.
