Sue and Christine at the washing station
It is not only humans who have found recent cold mornings hard to take. Plants feel the cold too, which means growth has been slower than expected for all of our stock. Some plants will be too small to go on sale at the Members’ Open Day on Sunday September 15 or at the Wildflower & Art Weekend. But the variety is good. Some plants—such as the Peach Heath, Lissanthe strigosa—will be available for the first time, although the ‘only one plant per person’ rule will apply as it will with some other species.
Sales on the Members’ Open Day start at 10.00 am (no earlier) and run through to noon at the Indigenous Plant Centre, McMillan St, Anglesea. And if you have any empty tubes from earlier plantings, we’d be happy to see them delivered to the ANGAIR office, preferably washed.

We meet at at the propagation unit behind the ANGAIR office, each Tuesday and Thursday at 9.00 a.m. and continue until we finish at about 12.00 p.m. Anyone with an interest in achieving something special is welcome, and no experience is required.
The ANGAIR Plant Propagation Group is very short of forest tubes and always like more cartons. Please leave them at the ANGAIR Office. Thanks in advance for your support.
