More tropical colour

Postby Pam » Wed Mar 14, 2007 3:25 pm

Just browsing through the albums to see if there is anything suitable for the comp and came accross this one.

More and more gardeners around Australia are opting for a 'tropical' look, and you can't blame them. When everything else in Winter can seem so bleak and dreary, there's nothing like some gorgeous foliage colour to brighten things up. A spot sheltered from frost is really all that is required.

If I find any others along the same theme I will add them here too.

This smut is the kind you get on plants. The sugar cane in our area was hit with it last year.

sugar cane smut is a serious threat to Australia's sugar industry - another import! :(
