Flora for Fauna Information Sheets

Here's a range of information sheets to help you create your own Flora for Fauna garden. They cover everything from planting and maintaining a native garden, to attracting butterflies and birds, and even dealing with unwelcome visitors.

All about bird baths

Bird baths on pedestals are surprisingly popular with birds. Perhaps an elevated bird bath provides an extra sense of protection, as birds are more vulnerable drinking at ground level.

Attracting birds to your garden

There's nothing more enjoyable than watching native birds such as tiny, acrobatic spinebills or a small flock of parrots feasting on nectar, insects and seeds in your garden. Birds can be enticed into your garden by providing the right conditions and a safe environment.

Attracting frogs to your Flora for Fauna garden
There are several ways to attract frogs to your garden. A pond with some water plants and grasses around the edge, will attract frogs to lay their eggs. Once the tadpoles have grown, your garden will have more frogs.

Feeding birds in your garden
Bird feeding is fun and an enjoyable way of getting to know local native birds at close-range. In Australia, birds don't really need extra feeding as they can readily find their food - especially if gardens have native plants providing nectar, seeds, berries and insects.

If your garden has clay soils
While many Australian soils will tolerate heavy clay or clay-loam soils, a little effort put into soil preparation before planting will allow a wider range of plants to be grown and will also result in better plant growth.

If your soil is sandy...

Some plants are particularly suited to growing in sandy soils. Some plants may tolerate dry conditions, whilst other may need some watering over summer.

Keeping your native plants healthy

Iron deficiency is a very common disorder in native plants and examples may be found in most gardens which contain a reasonable selection of Australian plants.

Nest boxes for native birds and animals

Many native bird and mammal species rely on hollows in trees for shelter and for breeding. These hollows are formed when the centres of tree limbs rot away due to fungal or termite action.

Planting and maintaining a native garden

Some tolerate extremely dry sites; other wet or boggy site. Some grow well in the shade; others filtered light or full sun. Some grow well in clay soils; others prefer loamy soils or sand.

Re-creating nature in your backyard

Some parks, with only trees and lawn are devoid of any ground dwelling insect life and it is quite difficult to find the little creepy crawlies that all the bigger animals need to eat.
