Plants suitable for a driveway garden?


Plants suitable for a driveway garden?

Hello, thank you for letting me join this site. To all of the experienced Gardner’s. We live in a Californian Bungalow that has a narrow driveway. The driveway has brick on one side and colour bond on the other and is north east facing. A lot of afternoon sun in summer and not as much in winter.  I have a few oblong cement pots.  I would like advice on what plants would best survive the heat and cooler months. Thank you, Paula

Re: drive way garden.

Hello Paula (@kasif


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. We are delighted to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about your driveway garden.


If you are planting decorative plants here is a link that should be handy: Winter Flowers Planting Guide by Regional Zones. However, if you decide to plant veggies instead, try this link recommended by one of our members @timjeffriesGardenate.


Here's a great article on How to fill a raised garden bed written by our experienced member @Noelle. I'm confident you'll find useful information that will guide you when preparing your planters.

Please let us know if you have more questions, we are more than happy to assist.
