Plants can struggle in the hot Summer months. So, it’s important to choose plants that are well adapted to the Australian Environment. Trevor shows off a plant range that thrives in the Aussie Summer.

  • Cottage perennial plants are well adapted to the Australian environment and summer conditions.
  • The Swan Valley Nursery Hat collection allows gardeners to select plants by flower colour. Hence, you can pick and create themes.
  • The Australian Summer can be very harsh. White coloured perennials are a great choice to provide a cooling effect.
  • The key to successful growth in pots is using a great potting mix.
  • Always select a trusted brand with the red premium standard tick. This will include wetting agents, controlled-release fertilizer and a rich source of composted organics that will hold nutrients and moisture around fast-developing roots.
  • The pots have these hat labels that help remind you what plants are growing and their specific requirements.
