Enhancing our native section of the garden

It was the Friends of the Orange Botanic Gardens Plant Sale day on Sunday.  We went down and got some native plants for our front garden - a few different Correa species, a BlackWood (Acacia melanoxylon), some local Hibbertias (Guinea flowers), a Tea tree and a Swainsona pea.

We planted them on the same day - along with all sorts of left over native plants I have had in the hothouse over the last year.  I am hoping that these plants will have a month or so to establish before the Orange winter sets in.

This all helps to make our "wildlife garden" or zone 5 on our Permaculture design for our suburban block.

It is going to be so nice to have our own "bush" in the front yard - soon we will have frogs and birds right outside our windows.  Our littlest is also keen to go "bushwalking" in the front yard.
