Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

I thought it would be a good idea to list some "must have" plants for Brisbane gardens.  Feel free to chip in.  I'm hoping this thread might become a good resource for all of us.

My criteria are:

  • bountiful production or exceptional other benefit
  • hardy
  • edibles must be good eating (no sense having a ton of something that tastes like rubbish).

PLEASE STICK TO the following format for the plants you recommend (because it will limit the number of things you recommend to the absolute best):

  • name (common and/or botanical)
  • use(s) and/or benefit
  • when to plant 
  • any other relevant information

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
