People from the Plant Propagation Group

We’re in! Our Mawson Ave propagation unit is now up and running, thanks to all the volunteers who’ve spent hours working on getting the site and buildings looking great.

A new Tuesday propagating group will start on March 14 from 9 am to 12 noon. No experience is necessary as you’ll learn on the job. We’d love to see you there. If you need more information ring Bill on 0419 504 911.

Please note: all propagators should park in the community car park (entrance 4 from McMillan St) under the terms of our council permit.

We are now taking on an extra, and fun, challenge: learning how to propagate the really difficult plants. ANGAIR will host a workshop – ‘Propagating the Impossibles’ – on Friday 24 March at the CFA building in Anglesea, Great Ocean Road, from 9 am to 1 pm. The principal speaker is Dermot Molloy, horticultural scientist at the Royal Botanic Gardens nursery. Two experienced local nurserymen, Graeme Stockton and Michael Robinson-Kos, will join him in a panel discussion. Several members will present our problem plants for their advice. We look forward to understanding seed dormancy and learning about new propagating techniques. With luck, the workshop will result in improvements to the range of plant species we offer.

ANGAIR members will have first priority in securing the limited number of free spaces. Ring the ANGAIR office (5363 1085) on Monday morning or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to book.

We are much indebted to the Norman Wettenhall Foundation for funding this exciting workshop.

Recycle your forest tubes and cartons

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.
