Well you know where we’ll be this Friday morning – picking up more cheap local native plants at the ‘Greenplan’ sale at the Wollongong Botanic Garden Nursery. Most of the plants on our verge (the area between our front fence and the road) we picked up for a great price at the last ‘Greenplan’ sale day. The diverse range of trees, shrubs and grasses we planted out are thriving, and include blueberry ash, indigofera, native mints, and kangaroo grasses. This Friday we’ll pick up more bleeding hearts and acacias to plant throughout the garden as ‘support plants’, helping to improve the soil, create habitat and play a number of other important roles.
The Greenplan Leap Year Sale is on this Friday 29th February from 7:30am to 2:30pm. It’s only for Wollongong Council residents, so don’t forget to take a current rates notice along. And it’s a limit of 50 plants per property. Contact the nursery on 4225 2636 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
