Leucophylla brownii 'Compact'
Cushion bush is a great tough shrub for difficult areas, which brings interest to the garden with its textural growth habit. It has silvery grey stems with tiny leaves, and round umbels of silver to pale gold flowers in summer. Great for coastal sites, as it resist wind and salt spray beautifully.

Duffii Fern in Swirla Marble Style Pot  

Nephrolepsis cordifolia is a compact fern with long arching fronds. This fern is super cute with its little button shaped leaves. Position in a brightly lit spot indoors or a shaded area outside. Paired with this swirled marble patterned concrete pot, the duffii fern is a perfect addition to any indoor jungle.


Rabbits foot ferns have beutiful green foliage which is complemented by their distinct soft rhisomes whcih appear above the soils surface. Rabbits Foot fetrns are a hardy and easy to look after plant that likes a fairly shady position. Use a well draining potting mix and allow to dry out slightly between waterings.

The rabbits foot pairs very well with a dark, natural coloured pot such as the Enid Green Lines Foot Pot.

 Silverbeet or Rainbow Chard is the ultimate pick and eat plant. It adds colour to the vegie patch and can be grown all year round.   Just take the leave you need and the plant will keep producing more.  Many leaves can be harvested at once without detriment to the plant because the roots store plenty of the carbohydrates necessary for additional leaf growth. Older plants have larger roots, so they can be quite denuded of leaves, without a problem.
Silverbeet should be plant 30cm apart in full sun. It can also be planted in half sun if you have no space in the full sun area you would want to keep for fruiting varieties. It is quick to crop with picking comencing in 6 weeks.Silverbeet is actually a close relative of beetroot (in fact it’s a variety of the same species), but it’s grown for its leaves and stems. Keep an eye out for snails this time of year as they are one of the few pests to damage the crop.
