Morrisons Bush Garden, native Australian flora in the Warby Ranges
The bush garden at Morrisons of Glenrowan is set in the wilderness of granite rocks and gum trees in the rugged Warby Range.
Planting requires a crowbar and a shovel and some water as the soil is mainly granitic rock and dry sandy gravel.
Plants get an allocation of water at planting and then their drought resistance has to take over. It is amazing how native plants can survive and flourish in such harsh conditions.
The property only has rainwater tanks so garden watering is not possible. Western Australian natives feature and thrive here as well as many Victorian indigenous species.
