6 month old Perth hills garden

Recommended Posts

Hursty87

Hey guys/girls,

First time poster here. My names Dan and I’m from Western Australia. Have created this garden pretty much from scratch over the past 6 months. I have roughly 18 different species of palms and would love to get a few more of the rarer ones, but there’s not too many places here to find any. Still have a lot I want to do to the garden next step will be to lay lawn over all the sand out the front. Please enjoy the photos and ignore all the crispy ends as it’s been 40’C plus for the past 5 days.

Welcome! There’s 100s of species that can thrive in Perth and it looks like you’ve made a good start with some nice selections for the climate and a nicely laid out garden.

Thanks guys, I am very happy with how it’s all playing out at the moment. Can’t wait to see what it looks like in 5 years time. This is a photo of the front yard in July when I moved in.

Hey mate. Welcome to Palmtalk. Nice to see another west Ozzie here. 

Where did you find your Abyssinian bananas. They’re hard to come by.

Welcome beautiful garden.  Perth and all of Australia are on my bucket list.  If Covid ever ends maybe I'll get there. Best wishes with your garden.

Nice work Dan, keep taking photos as it's great to look back. It will be a jungle sooner than you might expect, especially with kids that seem to distort the passage of time.  One of the greatest joys for me is growing palms from seed though I would always start with a plant if possible.
