Snaps of Grevillea ‘Golden Lyre' at Fairhill Nursery where it was bred. Once seen in full flower, never forgotten. A naturally spreading shrub, it's best given the space to build up layers of its horizontal branches and an occasional tip-prune for density. Drastic remedial pruning only leads to ugly vertical shoots. It's another big-flowered grevillea for those belligerent honey-eaters rather than a prickly habitat grevillea for smaller birds.

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.
