THERE ARE SOME SUPER EXCITING TOP END PLANTS TO GROW THIS DRY SEASON!!!
Whether it's oranges, lemons, mandarin, kumquats, grapefruit or limes, there's a variety to suit every taste and they can be grown right here in our beautiful top end climate. Citrus need a good sunny spot and can be planted in the ground, or if you're short on space dwarf varieties are ideal for pots in courtyards and on balconies. It's important to feed these plants regularly to promote healthy green foliage and a bumper harvest.
Come and visit us this season, it is a great time to see a wide variety of dry season colour, like Poinciana Trees, Yellow Flame Trees, Pride of India, Silver Trumpet and Pink Trumpet Trees. Whether it's crimson red, bright yellow or cherry pink, you can choose your favourite shade tree to bring your backyard alive.
Portulaca, Vinca, Marigold, Petunia, Salvia, and Impatiens are just some of the flowers you can grow in the dry season. They all love to be grown in full sun position. And can be used in garden beds, pots or hanging baskets to brighten up your courtyard or outdoor space. Your Marigold can even be used as a companion plant for certain herbs and veggies, as it makes a great natural pest repellent.
