    Hello,

    Anyone with any suggestions as to how to encourage honey eaters to nest in my garden. They sometimes seem to pick random bits of rope hanging from the ceiling in my laundry, but haven’t been in for a while. Any suggestions??

    Yep! Plant lots of grevilleas, which flower all year round in the Yarra Valley anyhoo, and Japanese Lanterns encourage honey eaters and also flower most of the year. :tup:

    I’m sure you will get oodles more suggestions jmcal41. 🙂

    Best of luck with adding to your garden.

    PS: Both of the above strike easily from cuttings, which is a bonus. Although we have found the white and the red Japanese Lanterns more difficult to strike the orange, yellow and pink ones are much easier, especially the orange.

    Grevilleas have so many different kinds and are rather wonderful.
