The grip of winter is beginning to loosen, and with the warming weather the first little grevillea flowers are beginning to show. This planting of grevillea shrubs might seem a strange choice for a Malaysian-style sub-tropical garden. However, we planted these as a means of attracting native birds and animals to our small garden.

Other than regular pruning, grevilleas require little other maintenance. Just keep them weed free. For us grevilleas grow well in our heavy clay soils where other native wildflowers have failed. For this reason we intend to seek out other smaller grevillea varieties as understorey plants. Let's hope our local birds enjoy our little grevilleas just as they enjoy our larger varieties... a blog for later!
