Grey water irrigation testing with popular native plants.
By Todd Layt
Summary of results
The best plants for grey water based on this investigation and real world knowledge are listed below. To work out the best plants we have assumed the gardens could be excessively irrigated with grey water or dry for periods of time.
|Vic, ACT, Tas, SA, WA, NZ and Southern NSW||Sydney to Port Macquarie (NSW)||Queensland and Northern NSW|
|Tanika||Little Jess||Little Jess|
|Katrinus||Katie Belles||Katie Belles|
|King Alfred||Tropic Belle*||Tropic Belle*|
|Nafray||King Alfred||King Alfred|
|Savanna Blue*||Poa Eskdale||Katrinus**|
|Katie Belles||Katrinus**||Katrinus Deluxe**|
|Tropic Belle*||Katrinus Deluxe**|
* If the Grey water is high in salt, avoid Savannah Blue. (Based on salt trials)
** Good draining soils in raised gardens suggested for these plants.
These are only 2nd year preliminary results, and as the research progresses, more plants may be added to this list.
