Beginner grow suggestions.

Recommended Posts

Hey,
I wanted to see if I could ask you guys for some suggestions of plants I could start growing towards the end of February in Victoria.
For so long I thought I didn't have it in me to look after anything (including myself :p). Now I realise I do and I love it.
Something relatively easy for a beginner preferably, open to challenges.

Something ornamental, other uses (medical, edible, entheogen) a bonus but not compulsory.

Something pretty or something something bold and robust (a plant I can move inside when it gets big enough).

Hopefully that's enough information for you guys, regardless, throw me some suggestions :)
Appreciated,
Del.

Why not grab an acacia from the SAB shop? Maidenii, baileyana, and complanata are all hardy and robust, and flower nicely after a while.

Actually I've started trying to germinate some acacia acuminata seeds as we speak.

I'll look at the ones you suggested above.

Thanks for your prompt response!

How about a brugmansia?

They are fairly easy to grow in vic and are simple to propogate. That way you can make future trades with fellow sabers and expand your garden :-)

Del, the acacia varieties were just picked based on a few I've grown, nothing really specific about those particular ones as ones to start off with. Acuminata is a good choice. Did you score and treat the seeds in heated water? If you don't have luck with the ones you've sown have a look at the search engine for germination techniques. 

 

Deadstar's suggestion is an excellent one for a non-native. Brugs are fun to grow, easy as, and have beautiful flowers.

Khat or Catha edulis is a fairly easy and pretty looking plant.
