Aren’t we all so relieved now the weather has cooled, we have had some rain and the bush fires are all out? Long may our relief last!!
There was a period in the last couple of months when I thought there would be nothing left of my 4 year old native garden. Most of it looked so stricken in the heat and dry I thought it was the end of 'life as we know it'. But to my surprise most of my garden did survive and with the rain the bounce back has been extraordinary. It’s almost like it didn’t happen at all.
Many of you have told me that you will be looking for very hardy plants to replace plants which didn’t survive in your own gardens and have requested a list to help you along. So here is a list of the plants which survived this year in my garden. Im not saying they were not given any water but they were given very little. Neither am I saying that they all looked fabulous (though some didn’t miss a beat) but they have all perked up now that the weather is cooler and we have had some rain and most of them are now putting on decent growth again which is very exciting. Long live Aussie native plants I say!!
