Be a plant detective!
Let’s explore the plants in your garden:
Count how many trees you have in your garden.
Are any plants flowering? What colours and shapes are the flowers?
Do you know what type of plants you have in your garden? Are they native plants like a eucalyptus tree or banksia, ornamental like a rose, or edible plants like fruit and vegetables?
Investigate signs of wildlife using the plants in your garden. You may see some animals in your garden like birds, bobtail lizards or insects, but for animals that are harder to find, we can look for evidence. Can you see nests or webs, feathers or skins, leaves or seed pods that have been nibbled? Even poo is a clue!
Using your evidence, determine what types of animals visit your garden.
Think about and research online the types of plants you would like to add to your garden. Why would you like to add these plants to your garden?
