Garden Themes. This article describes various garden themes that should work well within Australia.
Bulletproof landscape plants. Not all plants are equal. Many require the soil and climate (amongst other things) to be 'just right'. The plants described in this article are the ones that deserve the title of 'bulletproof' and are a good starting point for an easy-care garden.
External privacy screens. External privacy screens began to appear in Australian residential and commercial building during the 1950's and 1960's, as a direct result of high density living and higher incomes. For more information and some examples read this article.
Angelonia angustifolia 'Alonia' is a very floriferous and colourful annual to perennial plant with a nice mounding habit. It has spikes of flowers for many months in shades of white, blue, pink and purple, and can be used for cut flowers. A great bedding plant, it flowers best in a sunny area. Plant in spring into a rich soil with a good humus content. Tolerant of heat and humidity, and can take some dry periods once established. Trim back the dead flowers to encourage new growth. Mulch well to discourage weed competition, and feed with a good all purpose fertiliser.
