In my tropical garden

Home is the tropical uplands (900 m) of north Queensland, Australia, on the drier fringe of the Wet Tropics (rainforest) zone. It can be quite dry for a number of months each year and in winter there's an occasional frost. Soils are infertile granitic clays but hold moisture quite well.
