Why Perennial Plants?

For many years we gardened, diligently buying potting mix and planting European annuals like large tomatoes, cabbage, eggplants, lettuce etc. While we had some successes, lettuce often wilted and tomatoes were plagued with pests. The effort and expense involved kept us buying from the local grocery store. However, all of that changed after a chance meeting with a fellow gardener (thank you Druce!). Standing amidst their wild and bountiful rosellas and strange looking greens my eyes were opened to the wonderful world of perennial edibles and from then on I was hooked! Edible perennials have since become my gardening passion. This site provides guidance on the hardiest, most reliable and nutritious backyard food crops for South-East Queensland growing conditions.

  1. Hi I came across your page on fb, a friend shared it with me. In the age there was a guide to Perrnial plants and I can’t seem to find a link to this guide on your page. Could you please direct me ?
