Ripe For The Picking: A Productive Urban Garden

Horticulturist Hendrik Van Leeuwen’s garden is a shining example of a productive urban garden and shows how we could make better use of our backyards.

Secret Gardens of Sydney The plants are Westringia fruticosa on the left and Santolina chamaecyparissus on the right

Cool colours and beautiful textures with small leafed Westringia and Santolina(?) by Secret Gardens of Sydney. Not only do fine-leaved plants withstand heavy coastal winds, but they look great when mass planted adjacent to other fine-leaved plants.

Echeveria 'Encantada' is a really nice hybrid from Renee at Altman Plants. Pupping rather nicely at 3 years in the garden. Not sure whether it will develop the steroidal size the single plant initially had about a foot in diameter. This also blooms over a 6 month period, and as a cut flower I keep the flower stalks in arrangements for another 4 months and they still look great.
