One of my biggest gardening influences, my grandparents have an awesome garden.

What i think it most interesting about australian gardens is the way we mix the plants with such reckless abandon, one plant from japan, next to one from the uk, all underneath our native gums. It’s quite a metaphor for Australia, don’t you think?

Anyway, my grandparents have a mostly native garden, only a tiny patch of lawn, and quite a small (albeit productive) veggie patch. Gramps is constantly improving, updating, and always keeps it looking good.
