thumb150 60We recently completed an inventory of the plant varieties located in zone 1 to 5 of our (permaculture) garden areas. In total, the garden has approximately 229 unique plants that each have a different function in the garden. Of these, 108 unique plants are edible...

 

The following lists summarise the plant varieties that we have planted (and discovered already growing) in our garden. The lists contain information on plant genus (and species) by common name and plant genus (and species) by scientific name. In addition, the lists categorise the plants in terms of edibility, function, year planted, location planted, light conditions and cropping time. (Please click on the following links to view the lists in detail):

The following graph shows the number of plants by zone and edibility:

Once the data is entered into a worksheet, the program makes it easy to generate dynamic pivot charts (that can then be used to examine various relationships). The possibilities are endless. Also, a great reference book for this activity was "Wild Plants of Greater Brisbane".

The next step in this activity will be to refine and add to the list (to include more plant varieties from zones 3 to 5). Until then, please visit the following photo galleries to see photos of the plants in our various garden areas:  landscapingzone 1 (part 1)zone 1 (part 2)zone 2, and zone 3 to 5 areas. Enjoy!
