Which WA Natives Can Transplant In My Garden?

Did you know that if done at the right time of the year you can divide and move native plants around your garden. Many plants you can take to with a shovel and split off new plants or move the entire plant to a new location.

Weeds In The Nursery – Avoid These Plants

It is important when we are choosing plants for our garden that are not endemic to our local area that we consider the potential for that plant to become a weed. Once a weed spreads it can be near impossible to eradicate if it has had long enough to naturalise.
