My hayfever is kicking in just looking at that photo Jason!
they are beautiful trees. I have a row in the back yard acting as a screen. I need to figure out how to trim them without destrying them. they are taking up a little too much sunlight..
Welcome to Workshop @Dave.
I'd encourage you to post some photos in a new discussion - I'm sure some of the keen gardeners here will be happy to give you some pruning tips.
I don't really have a garden, more like a balcony with one potted plant...
...and that plant belongs to my housemate and is dying. I might steer clear of this topic.
My favourite at the moment as it can cope with the heat.
I just rescued some of ours from the backyard carnage with our building work. It's fantastic how you can just saw them off anywhere and then replant them. I just have them in a bucket on the deck at the moment.
plectranthus caninus... and osteospermum, and geranium, caper bush and pomegranate and cacti and succulents, wisteria and, and, and.... honestly anything that copes with 49c heat after a week of 45c heat here in Adelaide - which was all those listed.
But honestly, the plectranthus won. It looked fresh and green and VIBRANT the whole time, as if it were native to Mercury instead of Earth, and was feeling a little chilly.
OOH, special mention to sansevieria - I've got it everywhere, inside the house and outside, in the alfresco... love the stuff!
