wa­ter your wildlife, too!

Gardening Australia - - YOUR PLANNER -

In­sects, birds and wild furry things need more flu­ids as the tem­per­a­tures rise, es­pe­cially when it’s dry, so put out some fresh wa­ter for your gar­den vis­i­tors. All that’s needed is a shal­low bowl or bird­bath in a pro­tected part of the gar­den. Or con­sider in­stalling a small pond with a few rocks placed in the wa­ter and around the edges to pro­vide easy ac­cess for birds, but­ter­flies and rep­tiles. Pro­vide shel­ter by grow­ing plants near the edges as well. Or­na­men­tal grasses, in­clud­ing species of Lo­man­dra, Poa, Carex and Gah­nia, make good choices.
