Horrible weather in sydney!!! The View From Ozbreed Gardens Today – Thursday 17/10/2013

Australia is a really tough place to live at times, and we live in shelter. Imagine with the severe drought, heat and high winds of late how hard it is for plants to live.

It’s important to choose tough drought tolerant plants. Many of Ozbreed’s plants fit this brief, but just remember in times like this if you have to establish them, they are going to need lots of water make it through the first part of their life. In conditions like these even drought tolerant native plants need top up water to remain healthy.

You have to feel for all the Landscapers, and gardeners trying to get plants and turf to take in these conditions. Months of no rain, wind and heat. If you are installing turf and plants don’t skimp on the irrigation for the first 2 months, and in conditions like these, maybe 3 to 4 months.

PS. Wishing good luck to all those people effected by the fires.
