I have learnt the hard way to stick to natives in my garden. I have tried over many years to add some exotics but with little Summer/Autumn rain in WA and mounting water charges accept that local plants really are the way to go. Would add though the May Bush is a resilient little plant, haven’t managed to kill it yet :0)

ps barbmaggie I had similar feelings about the Perth gardening show but have been the past couple of years (discounted Kleenheat tickets ;0) and there seems to be an increasing number of display gardens. Hope that trend continues as that’s what makes the show worthwhile.

Aps77710, good to hear that it is slowly changing, hopefully we might get a real garden show in the near future. We might make a date for next year and meet up at the show?
