I want to plant some flowers in a garden bed I've just mulched. Probably not something I'll keep around, I've done edible flowers and tall sunflowers before. Any ideas? Would love something native, just as long as I won't have to get an excavator to dig it out.

I'm thinking of getting some palms for the back yard.

Prob get a few of them as they look better with friends.
Self cleaners are best
when the frond drops off you get a clean green head not a skirt of dead fronds hanging there for years

you will need a mulcher too eventually
I got the ozito one it does big fat foxtail fronds if you cut them a bit first

Do some herbs
they cost a fortune and usually compost in the fridge before you use them

Natives you could go paper daisy,do a mass planting or if you have the right conditions native mint or violets (moist shade)or pig face or Easter daisy.
