NATIVE WONDERLAND

Growing indigenous plants in your garden is super easy as the endemic varieties are naturally, perfectly suited to our local conditions.  

But that’s not the only benefit to creating a garden full of natives at your place. Indigenous plants attract native wildlife to your garden giving them their three main needs in food, water, and shelter/protection. They’re also incredibly drought-tolerant, making them the perfect option if you have a spot that doesn’t get much water, as most natives will survive off rainfall alone (no matter how little). And due to not needing much in the way of water or fertiliser, they’re fantastic as a low maintenance garden option that still looks great! 

When it comes to growing the ultimate Aussie garden, Rocky Point has you covered, with these products you’ll soon be getting compliments on your Native Wonderland.

Combining Rocky Points Native Mix with naturally fragrant Tea Tree Mulch is the perfect way to create a charming, sweet-scented garden that attracts wildlife, while producing the perfect growing conditions for your Australian plants.  

How to get the best results for your native plants:

1. Prepare your soil by topping up garden beds with Native Mix and digging this through the soil profile. Plant your new plants into holes dug approximately three times the size of the pot the plant has come in.

2. Place some Rocky Point Native Mix in the base of the hole, and then backfill the remaining space once you have your native plant in place. Sprinkle another layer of Native Mix around the plant circle. Water in well.

3. Cover the exposed soil with a thick layer of Rocky Point’s Tea Tree Mulch, ensuring you leave a gap around the base of your plants.

As a guide you will need 2x 30L bags Native Mix for every square metre of garden bed and a 50L bag of Tea Tree Mulch will cover a square metre at 50mm thick.

LONG STEM PLANTING

If you’re planting natives with trunks (i.e. native trees and shrubs), plant them deep enough that a third to halfway up their trunk is in the planting hole. This means the root zone is deeper into the ground and away from surface heat and helps to stabilise the plant. They will also grow roots from out of their buried trunks. Native mix can be used to backfill the holes and top up. 

FERTILISING

Natives such as grevilleas and banksias in the Proteaceae family require fertilisers that have below 2% phosphorus. The Rocky Point Native Mix releases low phosphorus fertiliser into the soil for 9 months. Together with rock minerals, trace elements, gypsum and iron, this free draining planting soil will give your Australian native plants exactly what they need

mulching

MULCHING

Although native varieties are typically more drought tolerant than standard plants, mulching your garden beds is very beneficial as it helps to conserve water by reducing evaporation. It also protects the soil from erosion and limits the growth of weeds, along with shading the soil keeping it cooler and moister, which helps plants survive in summer. 

WATERING

Promote strong, deep root growth by watering less often but for longer, over shorter, frequent watering. This allows water to penetrate deeper into the soil, which promotes roots to grow deeper down, rather than only keeping the moisture shallow in the soil.
