Missing in Action


Not often do you find a sign for something that is "not there".
This sign explains why plants, usually in a garden bed at Cranbourne Botanical Gardens, are missing.

Missing in action
Some plants need a burning

Must say I've never seen a sign anything like this in my life!

How interesting! I've heard of burns in forests for this same reason, but not in botanical gardens!

Impressed ! May time treat those plants kind. Wonderful lines as well. Please have a good Thursday.

I agree with Leslie. Never seen a sign like this nor a plant such as this. Wow.

This is certainly an unusual sign, though I do know about burning areas intentionally. They do it in the forests in our area. genie

That's very interesting! We are starting to realize (or remember) over here that sometimes fire is a natural occurrence. (Not so good when it is near where people live though as recently)

Nice informative sign. Similar to our "controlled/prescribed burns" that we have here in the U.S. forests.
