Just had a new garden bed planted but don’t know any of the plants ? Or how to look after them
Solved! See most helpful response
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your question about your new plants in the garden.
Looking at the picture the tall grass at the front looks like Lemon Grass. The tall plant in the middle could be Tulipwood or Emerald Fig. Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the leaves of the plants? If we have more detail, we will have a better chance of identifying the plants. However, regular watering should suffice in the meantime. Once we've identified the plants, we can give you better advice on how to take care of them.
If you need further assistance, please let us know.
Thanks do you think the tukeroo is suitable for the front garden bed it is about 2 meters from the front door
Hi @mazza Good question...
It wouldn't be my choice in that location but its size can be contained.
I'm assuming it's a new house? Often landscape plantings have to comply with council conditions about a certain number of native plants & they will generally insist on including at least on native tree. It's somewhat ironic that councils have allowed subdivisions onto small blocks then they expect people to plant a tree... anyhews... I digress.
I can't see it will cause any major problems besides maintenance.
Here's a short profile which may help. Remember that when sizes are stated they are generally referring to ideal growth conditions. In the average domestic situation, outside of their regular climate zone, a tree may only reach 1/2 that size.
