I would be really keen to hear what everyone thinks about what gives a garden a distinctly Australian feel. Having grown colourful perennials for years I am keen to make a big change by simplifying the planting using shrubs. Many of the “Australian gardens” I admire are coastal or hot & dry and they work brilliantly with a combination of native and exotic plants but I would be keen to hear what others do in cooler, slightly wetter areas. I have been interested in the experiments with Australian plants that James Hitchmough has been involved with but it’s so much more than just bunging in a whole lot of natives.
