Plants that challenge

Those of us who like to grow Australian native plants often long to grow some of the more difficult species in their own garden and mostly they come from WA. Frost is sometimes a determining factor in whether we are successful or not. Pimelea physodes, Qualup Bells, is one such plant that I find it is difficult to maintain in cultivation. In recent years grafted plants have become available and Melton Botanic Gardens has a lovely one on display.


Colourful Australian Flowers

I have been busy getting the weeds under control in the garden with little time for anything else but I did get to Melton Botanic Gardens recently. Enjoy the flowers.
