Green Thumb Sunday


Join
If you like,its going to be fun!!!!
Heres my first piccy for Green Thumb Sunday!

This is Fire Embers Grevillea,lovely little flowering ground cover,one of the last plants I procured for school for this year, as my budget is getting low.This Grevillea is worth growing for the flowers and I like ground covers as they help protect their neighbours from drying out too much!Not only that ,it has flowered continuelly for the last two months since being planted, with more buds coming!A close up photo of flowers would be handy so wil try to get that later!

Now this is my knitting blog but the Green Thumb has put this site as the main one to participate! So for knitting content,well it will just be on other days!!!!

  1. That's certainly one to look for in the fight against ever-drier gardens. Looks lovely, and I'd really like to see a close up shot.

  3. That does look like an interesting ground cover. A close up shot would be great! I love ground cover that is attractive and this sure does fit that!

    Welcome to the group. Hope you have an awesome Sunday!

  7. I don't think we have that kind of plant here in Canada. It looks very interesting. How far does one plant spread out?

    BTW your other site can be your GTS page, just let me know. :)

  8. I love our native plants, that is really nice, I must see if I can find one here as I need desperately to plant ground covers.

  12. Grevilleas are really great except they often exceed the stated growth limits. We have a huge one out the front that supposed to be a small bush.
