Yesterday's hairpin banksia varies in size and flowers across its range down the east coast of Australia, with several sub-species and forms in the wild. ‘Coastal Cushion' is one of the baby banksias that grow as a low compact mound like a ready-made bonsai. Though originally found on the NSW South Coast, it's being found to be a more reliable dwarf banksia pushing north into QLD.

Get chooks! Have fruit trees in the chicken yard. Chickens deal with pests, dropped fruit, providing eggs and manure. They even eat the weeds too!


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