Today’s eco-tip to help your local environment is planting Native Plant species in your garden!
Planting Native Plants in your garden provides food and shelter for native birds, butterflies and lizards as well as help provide a corridor to connect native animal and plant populations.
Additionally, Australia has long, dry summers and we suffer from water restrictions and an unpredictable climate. Australian native plants are more drought tolerant then exotic plant species so they will save you money on watering them as often. They are easy to grow and once having an established native garden are low maintenance.
PLUS native plants are our heritage, so by planting natives, we are helping to preserve them.
