GREVILLEAS FOR BIRDS AND BEES
Grevilleas are a fantastic and diverse group of Australian native plants that range from low-growing ground covers to tall trees. In addition to looking spectacular, their flowers are a valuable source of food for bees and other beneficial insects as well as birds. If you’re keen to include some grevilleas in your garden, Ozbreed has introduced two gorgeous shrub grevilleas into its range – Grevillea Gold Cluster and Grevillea Cherry Cluster. To keep grevilleas looking tidy and help prolong the flowering season, regularly cut off spent flowers. The plants can also be pruned back by about a third at the end of the flowering season to promote fresh new growth. Most grevilleas prefer well-drained, slightly acidic soil. In areas with poor drainage, grevilleas can be planted in raised mounds of well-drained soil. To promote healthy plant growth, feed native plants such as grevilleas with a soil improver and plant fertiliser each spring and autumn.
