Did you know?

People have been cultivating gardens for thousands of years! It hasn’t changed much. Scroll through to see some of the most popular styles still around today.


Australian Native Gardens. Gardens featuring beautiful Australian natives are only getting more popular by the day. These hardy little plants naturally thrive in our climate and require very little maintenance. A great choice for beginners.

Vertical or Hanging Gardens. These gardens are a great choice if you don’t have much space or want to try something different. You can combine different hanging plants, vines and creepers to create exciting vertical gardens.

Vegetable Gardens. The humble veggie garden never goes out of style, and nor do fruit trees. Growing your own food is a sustainable practice that’s highly rewarding. The huge savings you’ll notice on your grocery bill are just an added bonus!

Tropical Gardens. If you like your gardens lush and impressive, try going for a tropical rainforest theme. Mixing exotic trees, bright flowers and dark green fern foliage can create an incredible look for your indoor or outdoor garden.

Group plants with the same needs together.

All plants have different needs when it comes to soil, water and sunshine. By grouping together the plants in your garden with similar needs, you’ll have a much easier time caring for them.

Always check the soil!

You’ll find this little gem of wisdom everywhere on our site. Always use your fingers to check the moisture of your soil before watering the garden. It’s the easiest way to tell if you should water now or wait a bit longer.

Hold on to your compost waste.

Your fresh food waste (like coffee grounds, egg shells and veggie scraps) makes great garden food. Consider buying a composter for these scraps or simply bury them and let them compost naturally underground

Keep a notebook.

Gardening is all about trial and error as you learn exactly how much water, sunlight and fertiliser your plants need. Keeping track of what you’re doing with a notebook or gardening app will help you stay on top of your garden.
