Check out this hedge of two different bottlebrush I recommended for a large garden, 'All Aglow' and 'Great Balls Of Fire'. The colour of the new growth after pruning rivals any exotic plant! Callistemon make great hedge plants as the old wood contains many dormant buds, so as long as they are healthy, the plants spring into life after pruning. There are terrific old and new cultivars available that have different flower and foliage colour and sizes, so you can get creative in your garden planning. How about teaming 'All Aglow' with bright pink flowers (pictured) with Little John which is shorter growing and has blue-green foliage and dark red flowers, and some White Anzac with white blooms? Callistemon are adaptable to a range of gardens situations too, and birds love the nectar rich flowers! I have 'All Aglow' in tube pots and a few others available on my shop- http://www.gardeningwithangus.com.au/product-category/plants/affordable-tubes/ #bottlebrush #australiannatives #australiannativegarden #australiannativeplants #nativehedge #bottlebrushhedge #hedge #amazinghedge #gardeningwithangus

Roogenic Native Strawberry Tea (unsponsored) I truly enjoy a brew and this one is amongst my favourites. I found a Roogenics shop in Fremantle at the Fremantle Markets. I definitely suggest to make an effort to head down there to experience their wares. The samples are freely given and the staff are very knowledgeable in the benefits of each product. Their unique combinations incorporating Australian Native plants amongst their teas, spices and rubs gives a unique, refreshing taste whilst experiencing the added benefits of traditionally used plants. My American Chef friend who was visiting from Kansas City at the time almost took one of everything and they looked after her back with some great deals. We both agree the Native Strawberry Tea is one of their best, hot or cold. Here's to shipping worldwide too 👍👍 www.roogenic.com.au @dannettefortner Cheffy, Chef, Chef! Chefs do it best - Finally got a tea infusion to go! #roogenic #roogenictea #nativestrawberrytea #australiannativeplants #australianplantsincooking #realtasteofaustralia #productofaustralia #tea #antioxidanttea #healthytea #strawberrygumleaf #chilledtea #infusiontea #infusedtea #hydration #hydrateme #healthylifestyle #fitlifestyle #kansascity #kansascitychef #australianfoodsinamerica #infusion #fittea #digestiontea #digestionassist #indigenousaustralian

Spent the morning back at Lysterfield Park today, doing some plant ID for our project site. 🌿 🌿 We then walked up to the high point of the park, on the eastern boundary, for a bit of a break and to take in these fantastic views of the granite boulders, and across to the lake and beyond. . . . #lysterfieldpark #granite #outcrops #biodiversity #ecology #environment #revegetation #australianflora #australiannativeplants #australiannatives #australianfloraandfauna #ilovemelbourne #melbourne #naturewelove #pixelxl #pixelphone

This #australiannative #mistletoe is #inflower all around our property right now, it's an airborne #plant that uses the #casuarina #trees as a #host .. Some say it's a pest, but current research is proving otherwise, suggesting that it's an important part of our #ecosystem and natural #bushland #habitat 👌 .. .. #australiannativeplants #australiannativetrees #nativeplants #plants #flora #flowers #nectar #birdfood #animalfood #naturalhabitat #naturalbushland #amazingnature #beautifulnature #natureatwork #nature #naturalbeauty #bushviews #australianbush #australianbushliving #thirtyacres

It all starts with the “Biara” leaf bud in the centre of the stem, which then bursts into life on Banksia Attenuata. #banksia #banksiaattenuata #mandurah #australiannativeflora #australiannativeplants #australiannativeplant #australianbush #nativeaustralianplants #banksialeaves

'Necessity is the mother of invention' and as the #bigdry continues watering plants is becoming more frequent. Even #australiannativeplants are feeling the pressure to survive. The method of watering shown here is not a new idea by any means but a very simple method and more than likely an ancient precursor to modern day, slow and deep #drip irrigation. In my case, a large 15 litre metal urn with a 7mm hole in the bottom which I covered with a large stone to slow the release of water. Placed at the base of this water stressed #lemonmyrtle it took 45 minutes to completely empty. A lot of garden soils are now extremely sun scorched and dry causing a #hydrophobic effect where any water applied to the surface will just run off and not be absorbed by soil nor taken up by plants. Using this method of watering will help prevent water evaporation and hopefully get my garden through this #huntervalley #drought . #organicgardener #ecogarden #summerinaustralia #backyardgardener #backtothefuture #sustainablegarden #selfsufficient #weneedrain #permaculture #urbanfarm #dontwastewasteadrop #urbanagriculture #nsw #australia
Austromyrtus dulcis “copper tops” or Midgen Berry. An Aussie native small shrub found on the east coast of New South Wales grows to 50cm high X 1.5m wide. Stunning new red growth and red bark, small white flowers and edible berries.

It seems a bit bright for my feed but I do hope you will indulge me as I introduce still alive roadside foragings to my grid. I do my bisque firing at home and travel to a friends for glaze firing together. It was glaze firing night Monday and recovery day Tuesday (after getting home at 1am that morning). Usually glaze firing week is exciting and fun, waiting to open the kiln and then checking out the treasures this amazing process can yield. But this week, the day after the firing I learnt of a tragic loss of life (see my previous post), and when I unpacked our kiln, I did it with a heavy heart. And then because I had the time, and because it brings me such joy, I deliberately spent time roadside foraging. And I do hope this doesnt sound ridiculous, but usually I spontaneously stop the car for a spot of foraging. But this time I deliberately did it a number of times on the way to pick the smalls up from school. And the mindfulness of foraging really struck me, and the need to make space for mindfulness practice in whatever form it may take. Because it is a soul healing space. And in case you were wondering the little berries are salt bush, there is another random native in there at the back and the strange green things completely allude me but they seem to grow on roadside grass things at this time of the year. And I love them all. Happy weekend lovelies X Ilona ... oh and there are more kiln pretties to come soon X

Great to get out of the city today and get up close and personal with some edible indigenous plants. Here we have Strawberry Gum in the foreground - that went into our muffins. Our cooking class with Julie was so interesting and inspiring! 🙏#nativefoods #nativefood #peppermintridgefarm #tynongnorth #strawberrygum #australiannativeplants #australiannativefood #lifelonglearning #slowfood #slowfoodmelbourne

This is the beginning! Wandering through the bush in the Swan coastal plain, learning about this amazing plant. The ants already know how valuable this is. 🐜🐜🐜 #banksia #mandurahlife #flowers #flowerstagram #flower #yellow #yellowflowers #banksiaattenuata #ants #australianbush #australiannatives #australiannativeplants #australiannativeflora
