Kangaroo Paws

Kangaroo paws are great for adding colour to the garden and work really well in pots as well as planted in garden beds.  The key to success is loads of sun and excellent drainage. The more sun you give them, the more flowers you will get.  Remember flowering uses up a lot of energy, so use some Neutrog Bush Tucker twice a year on them when there flowering shoots appear, and also when new growth appears.  In between times they love diluted worm wee from your Hungry Bin.

Kangaroo paws are terrific for attracting birds and native bees, as they are rich in nectar. If you place one outside your windows, you’ll be able to bird watch from inside!  They also make great cut flowers, so you can enjoy them inside in a vase for weeks.
