Sustainable gardening is a growing trend in Australia. Due to drought conditions over the past decade, many Victorians have moved away from European-style plants that are heavily reliant on water to using indigenous plants that are more suitable to the local area.

People growing their own fruit and vegetables is also on the rise – partly due to rising food costs and also the fact that food you've grown often tastes fresher.
