Its interesting to read so many gardeners are growing similar plants as we do.We live in the sub-tropics +
have a large botanical type garden with broms ,ferns,
palms + many other collectors items.I;m looking for the
part of your area where the climate is the same to compare
notes.We have hot summer;28 to34+is often humid.We get the
leftovers from the northern cyclones+sometimes heavy rain
in summer.Also we get some winter rain but not much.Winter
is generally mild with the odd frost with the day temps
reaching usually 25.Being on the border with the tropics
we can enjoy both,tropical rainforest[favorites]plants+
lots of flowers from the colder areas.We mix aussie natives
with other tropical species.Is your area similar?

RE: Australian interest

Your area sounds very similar to Central Florida. Warm , generally very mild winters with only an occasional light frost, and long, hot, humid summers. Even your rainfall pattern seems to be similar.
