Bromeliads! (not pineapples)

Late at night while poking around the world wide web, looking for things to fill a small space in the garden,  I discovered a bromeliad nursery almost within shouting distance.

I know that it would have been quite easy to simply order online, but the lure of talking to a human being about these amazing plants was too great.   Normally we have a distinct preference for Australian native species, preferably ones that are appropriate to our region at that, but the prospect of planting something that will sit in the shade, mind it's own business and usually not die or even sulk if no-one pays attention to it proved too great, which is how we found ourselves at first light on the road to Bromeliads of Australia!

Good luck with them!

I'd end up inadvertently killing them...
