About plant this

It starts with a crush on something bright and glamorous, becomes more exploratory, promiscuous and ridden with errors, before it turns more discerning and realistic. Hopefully, it eventually develops into a lasting, mutually-beneficial relationship within which all parties can grow and change.

PlantThis and its Plant Selector are for those at any stage of their affair with plants. A reference for newcomers looking for guidance; a resource for knowledgeable enthusiasts; a selection tool for the practical and professional garden-maker; and inspiration for all the plant dreamers. The right plant for you is out there.

Fast plant facts

Donnah, East Corrimal NSW
Mulch! It retains moisture, suppresses weeds and helps retain soil moisture. I always use newspaper underneath and in very weedy areas I use cardboard instead.

Palmetto

Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
