Australian plants are wonderful to have in the garden but they are not maintenance free. ‘Plant and forget’ is an all too often promoted horticultural myth about the growing of our Australian plants. It is true, that most Australian plants require less attention than many exotic plants, however they do benefit greatly from some fertilising, pruning and watering. Pruning promotes healthy growth, extends the life of short-lived plants and boost a greater display of flowers.
Banksias are one of the most spectacular of Australian plants, with their beacon-like blooms, they range from ground covers to trees and everything in between and they are a really useful plant for the garden, but to be at their best, they need to be properly pruned.
We had the pleasure of doing some Fine preservation pruning in a confined space on these banksias which were located in Port Fairy recently.
If you have a confined space of your own which may require a bit of maintenance, or some beautiful natives you want to look their best, please call us on 0408 629 377 for a FREE QUOTE.
