Rain Gardens

Rain gardens have many benefits for our waterways and ourselves. When selecting the right plants for your rain garden, you have to follow a few rules to make it successful. Find out what plants will work in rain gardens. Full article

New pot sizes for new plants
The Shrubs and Ground Covers range
are not as quick growing like strappy leaf plants and grasses when it comes to establishment. For this reason Ozbreed has agreed with Government authorities and therefore minimum size of plants for sale will be 90mm pots. 140mm pots are even better for these types of plants.
Trialling with Government authorities shows that results of planting and establishment are adversely affected by using planting sizes any smaller than 90mm pots.
