The focal point of our front garden is the Brisbane Wattle. It has birds of all sizes in it every day – fairy wrens, small brown honey eaters, Australasian fig bird, Noisy friarbirds, all love this tree. In late winter, it has a mass of yellow flowers and is abuzz with bees.
These medium-sized trees are fast growing, popular with birds and pollinators, and a great way to turn a blank canvas into a garden. In Brisbane, you can pick up a tube stock at most nurseries.
