Don't put coffee on your plants
It's time to get water-wise people. We are always facing drought-like conditions in some part of this country. Even in the depths of winter, we need to be careful with our water consumption. The best way to cut back is to have a water-wise garden. A garden that is full of native plants is going to need less water and be able to survive the harsh summer conditions. To know what is the best plants to choose, there is a free class in Kings Park, known as Dig It With Coffee
On the first Wednesday of every month (not in January), at the Zamia Cafe, experts will be there to help you out with a grow-me-at-home display. The experts will show you the best plants to grow that are Western Australian natives. These plants are water-wise, hardy and of course beautiful. What's more, they are plants that are very popular with local birds too. Everything they show you on display are plants that are easy to find in local nurseries.
The horticulturalist will take you on a walk and talk, pointing out the most beautiful plants. Of course, sometimes it is going to be raining, but that won't keep a good gardener down. So make sure to come dressed for the right weather.
It's a free event, but you do have to book in to ensure you get a space. These spaces book out fast, and they are limited. You can buy a refreshment and snack at the cafe, which are always beautiful and tasty. Please note, that social distancing is required.
