Gardens of the future may have to change

Just saw a news report stating that gardeners are being advised to start thinking about planting different types of plants and trees compared to what they are normally used to - due to Global Warming.

The hotter summers and drier winters means that the traditional gardens we are used to may become a thing of the past.

Here are just a couple of plants being mentioned for `tomorrow`s garden.`

Bottle Brush plants belong to the Myrtle family, taking their name form the resemblance of the head of flowers to a bottle brush. They are well known also as greenhouse shrubs.

The other one which was mentioned is the Eucalyptus Tree of which there are reckoned to be about 500 species. Not too sure about the Koalas though.
