This Saturday, 20th October, you have a fabulous opportunity to buy a wide range of locally grown native plants. A good range of our plants from IDP Nursery will be there but other growers will be there with their plants as will the Australian Native Plant Society group who propagate plants for growing locally.
There will be plenty of knowledgeable people there to answer your questions about growing native plants in our environment. And of course a stroll through the botanic gardens after wards never goes amiss. Take your camera for all the lovely photo opportunities!
The sale is situated in the Southern Car Park of the Australian National Botanic Gardens from 8.30 am until 1.30 pm (or earlier if sold out). Plant lists will be available just before the sale from: https://nativeplantscbr.com.au.
This sale really is very popular with people in the know so get there early and go with a list from the website above so that you know what you are looking for.
See you there.
We learned how to use internet tools that the CSIRO has been developing and use the Atlas of Living Australia website to see which plants might be the most hardy in our region in the coming years. This was a fascinating exercise and will definitely bring more insight into the choices I make when sourcing plants for the nursery in the future.
The main thing I got out of the day was that, whether or not we believe in climate change, weather patterns are changing and plants (and humans) have to be inventive to survive these tough days ahead.
You can continue to rely on IDP nursery to be making informed choices and deliver plants that have the best chance of survival in our region because they have been carefully chosen for hardiness and they have been propagated and grown locally.
