Rainforest Shade


This image shows a well put together rainforest planting in full shade.

In the fore ground is a thick carpet of Adiantum formosum, they stand about half a metre high on black stems with delicate foliage. Then there is a large Asplenium nidus which must be the easiest and most rewarding fern to grow, on the tree trunk is a small clump of Dendrobium kingianum for colour. This garden bed has space, so even though it is full of plants it doesn’t feel cluttered due to the simple and minimal plant selection, making it feel peaceful and un-finnicky.

Birdbaths designed for birds

Mallee Birdbaths are specifically designed to serve birds. The copper dishes are broad and shallow, allowing birds to land on the edge and walk into the water. The baths are modern, elegant and durable. They are locally made in the Illawarra (NSW, Australia) using materials that will weather well and last decades. For help on which dish to choose, go here.
