What's Flowering in our patch in Kambarang (October/November 2019)

30 Nov 2019

The third in a series of blogs where I share what's flowering in our patch. With a deep respect for the traditional custodians of this land, I will be sharing what's flowering during each of the 6 Indigenous seasons, as these are the true season of this land. We are currently around the middle of the Kambarang, the season of birth - which is apt as this is the time of year when most native bees emerge for the new season. 

 

Our aim here is to give a majority of our land back to nature and one way we do this is by having an abundance of food in the form of flowers for all endemic fauna - from the tiniest native bees to the largest foraging mammals and birds and everything in between. From trees to groundcovers, natives to edibles, here's our list of plants that are in flower. We hope you find some inspiration from this list for what you could plant in your own garden.  (Note: some are only flowering for parts of Kambarang and some are flowering throughout the whole season:)
