Q 1. Will these plants cope with predicted Global Warming in SE Queensland?
A: Climate Change winners and losers are indicated in the comments column of the attached pdf.

Q 2. How many plants are growing in the front garden?
A: I am currently growing one hundred and twelve taxa (different plants).

Q 3. Have any died?
A: About twenty taxa have died since planting in September 2004. Most died as a result of being buried by bamboo leaves in autumn 2006. They died of neglect, not drought.

Q 4. Where are the flowers?
A: I grow flowers, but architectural plants come first as they are the bones of any garden. Currently about 61 different plants flower regularly. More will flower as they mature.

Q 5. Where are the native plants?
A: There are 21 national plants, including eight Queensland endemic species. Some Australian ‘natives’, like Psilotum nudum, don’t recognise political borders and are defiantly pantropical.
