It's impossible not to mention this feature of the same Mt Arthur walk. Not so much as a planting recommendation it's too slow and tricky to grow. Just for the magic of its bizarre candelabra stands of pineapple heads. Add peeling bark flashing with orange, a thick self-mulching carpet of leaves and lichen-covered southern beeches tortured like bonsai, and a master Japanese gardener/animator could have been at work.

I use sugar mulch on garden, birds love it, keeps plants moist, and its not harsh to handle. Fantastic stuff to use in garden, recommend it.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
