Common Name: NATIVE PLANTS GENERAL CARE
Plant Type: 50 mm Landscaping Pot
Planting: Plant in a hole at least twice the size of the pot, the same level as the pot.
General Information: Natives can provide attractive flowers and foliage and they also attract many varieties of birds into the garden. Many natives will survive on little water and will take warmer conditions.
Soil: Usually require well drained soil.
Watering: Only water when the soil appears dry (approx 1cm below the surface), then water until damp. Do not over water natives.
Fertilising: At planting add some Native Plant fertiliser to the hole then cover with some soil before placing the plant in (otherwise you will burn the roots). A diluted liquid seaweed product is beneficial to all native plants. It also helps to place some mulch, such as compost, dry grass or leaf mould around the shrub after planting to preserve moisture. However, do not smother the plant or place the mulch too close to the stem of the plant. Most natives benefit from a yearly application of a complete fertiliser specifically designed for Australian Natives during spring.
Pruning: Most natives require gentle pruning in order to keep tidy and promote vigour to the plant.
Dislikes: Being over watered.
Pests: Generally pest resistant in most locations.
✔ Ideal for attracting birds and wildlife to the garden.
Tips: If planting in a windy area the plant may require staking until established.
