Lyle’s col­lec­tor tips

Gardening Australia - - PLANT PASSIONS -

Buy plants that catch your eye, whether it’s a shape, colour or tex­ture that ap­peals to you. Learn the names of plants you buy, so you can find out where they are from and their pre­ferred en­vi­ron­ment. Con­sider start­ing a col­lec­tion of dif­fer­ent types of one species. Learn the ba­sics with plants that are small, easy to ob­tain and cheap. You can start pay­ing big­ger money later. Cacti and suc­cu­lents are good to start with, as they are for­giv­ing if you for­get to wa­ter them. Then you can be more ad­ven­tur­ous and build a col­lec­tion.
