|Before I began planting here, this site contained ONE tree...this callistemon (bottlebrush) you can see in the middle ground.|
|The arrows point to dianellas. These are also a good guerilla gardening plant as they are easily propagated from runners and they spread reasonably quickly, suppressing weeds, looking good and the berries are edible.|
This is a small section alongside the path that leads down the lower level. Overrun by non-productive and boring weeds, I have planted some dianella tubes, blady grass and other native grasses I have propagated. My dad, who works as a bush regenerator detests blady grass, and in some cases, I agree with him.However, it is a good guerrilla gardening plant, as it is incredibly tough, spreads quickly and suppresses weeds. I would much prefer to see a tuft of blady than an area overrun by bidens or lantana. I am lucky that there are spare rocks lingering around the site which I can use in my 'gardening' (see above).
