Beneficial Garden Creatures. 

  • We don't often get Lorikeets in my garden, but when the bottlebrush are in bloom they descend on us in a small noisy cloud, and we enjoy their energetic aerobatics for several days.  They are our most glamorous pollinators, and although their benefits to us are more aesthetic than practical, my wife and I love them.
  • Its hard to love the creatures at the other end of the spectrum of beneficial creatures in my garden, the micro-organisms.  But they are nonetheless vital to the wellbeing of my plants and I spend a good deal of time nurturing them.
  • The links below take you to the pages on my blog covering some of the beneficial creatures I rely upon and the reasons for that dependence.
