3rd photo in your last post can't recall what they're called but if you pluck those little flower things off and open it up there is usually a tasty treat in there that looks like a water drop

Yes they are amazing, grevillea's are so full of honey. If you look at the second picture you can see all the native bees going crazy, Drunk. Lol. 

Thank you for having a look at my garden,  Peace

Hey mate, Would love some seed please, I have had a good go at a few tassie native species , l lost a bunch due to humidity but have worked out a good mirco climate now and the SA and TAS species are growing well. 

With the phedra, mealy and scale are having a good go at it.  ants are travelling in need for moisture. it's been a very dry winter up here. no big out breaks of it so I will let the good bugs take care of it.
