I ( Miriam) filmed this garden when visiting Horsham in early August. Maree Goods ( from the Wimmera Growers) tells us about the garden. This is part 1 of 3 parts – 2 are of the garden beds alongside the church and the 3rd is of the perimeter plantings which features Acacia, Eucalypt, Hakea and many more species. See MoreSee Less

Think of the butterflies – plant some Australian native daisies!Butterflies LOVE ‘Golden Everlasting Daisy’ (and many other native Australian Daisies) – and so do many other pollinators!Everlasting Daisies are incredibly hardy, drought-tolerant and flower profusely from late spring, throughout summer and well into autumn. They make excellent parkland, garden, verge and pot plants – all over the continent – and they are widely available from most nurseries!PLEASE:🌼 Don’t spray flowers with pesticides – as these may kill pollinating insects. 🐛 Don’t use ‘organic’ caterpillar-killing pesticide (Bacillus thuringiensis) – as Everlasting Daisy leaves are also a favourite host-plant for caterpillars of the ‘Australian Painted-Lady’ butterfly.
