i was wondering if anyone could help me ID this plant
this was in my last garden, grew to about one metre high, wasn't very bushy

it had a pea like flower, and the seeds were flat flakey and brown

Looks & sounds like Polygala virgata.

Possibly Swainsonia? Often seen on roadsides and remnant bush.

I collect manure from a sheep property. I shovel out what I need from under the shearing shed. Soak in watering can for excellent fertiliser.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
