Caring for a native garden in winter

Sure is cold down here at the minute in Willow Tree!   

Having moved to a “Plantswomans” garden with a LOT of native plants, I thought I better do a bit of research and see if there were any essential tasks I need to keep in mind.  Luckily, it seems pretty simple… there are a few photos below, and I take NO credit for the garden! 

Our members often say that when you become part of Landcare, you’re not just joining a group, you’re becoming part of a family. The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.
