                          Great pics nonetheless mate! Are they WA Kangaroo paws youre growing? Mine didnt like my soil - too much clay, not enough pre-mulching (& lack of needed care mind you).

                          But from looks they both look thriving, & so big thumbs up! Drought resilience is a factor that should decide our landscaping adventures at the moment.

                          My grevilleas & lilly-pillies (please someone horticulturally attuned correct my spelling!) are going great guns, but with absolutely no watering over the past year - just shows how natives prefer neglect to thrive it seems!

                            Love all the spring colour so far. Ive made an album if anyone would like to see some of my flora pics. Most of them are at home, and some of my garden jobs (the flash ones) enjoy................................

                              Thanks Lovey for the link.

                              Grind sound like your lilly pilliys are going better than mine, although mine arent that old yet but you can see them behind the grass tree between the brick pillars eventually they will be hedged to fill the space. I have clay soil as well but with the KPs I dug big holes and put a kilo of gypsum in the bottom then filled them up with a native potting mix and planted them into that and used a product called Clay breaker with is mixed with water and gives more immediate results than gypsum it would ahve been good to put in the holes first if i had of had it.

                              Greenman i like the "mini" garden and the other ones are amazing too. The wisterias look superb!! Ive got some Wisteria seeds which im going to plant out tomorrow which in years to come will hopefully make a good Bonsai.
