End of July- best flowering plants

Acacia acinacea

Grevillea rosmarinifolia
Too small to have an impact yet but our two small Grevillea plants are covered in flowers and show much promise. Their flowers stay on the plant over an extended period of time and are a valuable source of food for nectar-feeding birds. The acacias are just beginning to flower. In about two weeks from now they will enlighten the whole embankment. We have two species: Acacia acinacea and Acacia pycnantha.
The next working bee is planned for Tuesday, August 5th but we need to look at the long-term weather forecast before we make it official.
