biodiversity at home: the benefits of indigenous plants

I'm beyond excited to say that we recently planted some indigenous grasses and ground covers in the front garden. We bought the plants over Easter from the State Flora Nursery at Belair National Park, where we were provided with a comprehensive list of plants that are indigenous to our area. I can not say enough as to just how amazing the staff were. They really were super helpful and very patient

Benefits of planting local natives 
  • Planting local natives preventing their extinction
  • Planting local promotes your local biodiversity
  • Planting local suits your garden's climate perfectly (in the case of Australia this means low/no water plants)

Our new plants, in order of appearance:

  1. Dianella Revoluta 
  2. Lomandra Longifolia
  3. Wahlenbergia Stricta
  4. Isolepis nodosa
