We Brisbanites enjoy a unique climate that allows us to enjoy sunshine nearly year-round. While gardens traditionally thrive with sunshine, our climate with its high temperatures and dry periods presents both opportunities and challenges for our gardens.

However, one secret weapon that every Queensland gardener should have in their arsenal is mulch.
