Colourful

Postby posting-proxy » Tue Nov 20, 2007 3:52 pm

My garden is a mixture of banana trees, palms, happy plants, cacti = anything pretty and colourful. I just plant anything anywhere that I can find a bare patch and hope for the best. We just rely on the rainfall and don’t use any fertilisers etc. I am forever getting clippings of plants and plonking them everywhere!

It's working very well for you. Looks like a sub tropical area, if that's bananas at the base of the slope. Love the position of the gazebo. Is the whole area mulched? What is your annual rainfall ?

We are in Palmwoods, Sunshine Coast queensland. You can grow anything here and rains fairly regularly, we have a couple of dams for back up but rarely have to use.
