Bird life attracts snakes .. any thoughts on how to reduce snake interest !
janelle
56:03
Yes good questsion
Sarah M
58:09
Various snake species are endemic to Wyndham, it's not specifically birds that attract them as they eat other species too. You avoid snakes by not leaving scrap metal and lumber around, things that they hide in, and keep any lawn short if you have any.
janelle
59:33
Do they like hiding amongst the plants?
tom
01:01:00
hmmm... so they are likely to like the hollow logs that we consider leaving for the smaller creatures. Perhaps we just accept and embrace them all !
Wyndham Wildlife Gardens
01:01:42
Snakes love hiding in the introduced exotic Agapanthus. Snakes will do anything to avoid us and will hide. I often see them when I go for a walk along the rivers but they are gentle reptiles and we are not their prey.

Janelle, whilst snakes are common, I haven't come across anyone who has had them in their habitat gardens in the Wyndham area.
Sarah M
01:02:25
If it's of huge concern you can enclose your property boundary to prevent them entry, but then you prevent other ground-dwelling species getting in. Honestly I've seen tiger snakes a lot in Wyndham on paths and they just slither away. tHey are more dangerous to dogs who try to attack them.
janelle
01:02:43
I am by the river in Bacchus
Sarah M
01:03:03
I am right by the river in Werribee.
janelle
01:03:34
OK Tigers and brown are quite common here too

Water attracts snakes but if you walk in a bushy area...walk heavily it will scare them away. Lots of tigers on the farm areas near channels but usually just be careful near rubbish. I find rubbish will attract snakes more than anything...like don't leave corr\\ugated iron lying around the garden near a fence. Good place to hide. :)

Just borrow the Plants of Melbourne’s Western Plains from the library. Then rung Newport Nursery and the guy was really helpful, grabbed his copy and we worked out the options and he gave the page number so I could see the plant. Great service in lockdown
Michelle

Suggestions for hardcore shade loving shrubs? Suburban backyards like mine have a fair few shade/shadowed areas from high fencing/buildings... struggling to grow indigenous plants in these spots as they love the sun!
Wyndham Wildlife Gardens

Grevillea rosmarinfolia - prickly and loved by wrens
Kimberly

YES Really great presentation THANK YOU
Nicole Fergusson
01:15:57
A list of plants grouped according to height would be SUPER helpful!
Kimberly
01:18:21
I work in a childcare service and we want to plant a butterfly garden. When choosing butterfly attracting plants, are there any we should avoid due to children also being in contact with these plants
Deena
01:19:55
^kangaroo apple when the fruit is unripe
Kimberly
01:20:01
thank you so much
Kimberly

Spitfires ate my garden ...
Dylan Wishart
01:21:49
How likely would planting natives be in terms of attracting local wildlife in a suburban setting? I live in the literal middle of a suburban area and the closest native reserve is 2km away. I doubt this would attract any lizards or possums.
Greg Walker
01:22:07
Spitfires … hose!
Frith Kennedy - City of Stonnington
01:22:22
When are you bringing out a new book???
Lydia
01:22:28
Sorry got another one! Moving plants in currently in flower? Or when is a good time to do it? I've got a few plants being outcompeted by weeds and are struggling but flowering.
Lydia
01:23:33
Thank you!
Dylan Wishart
01:23:52
I had a question that I already posted
Abigail
01:23:56
@Dylan reckon you would be surprised I am also amazed at what is hiding out there looking for a safe place to live.
kosonnoy
01:23:59
We have blackbirds & pigeons do they deter native birds
Lydia
01:25:05
As for pruning indigenous plants, is a general rule to prune after flowering to encourage growth/renewal?
Dylan Wishart
01:25:14
Sorry do I need to ask my question again?
Wendy
01:25:19
