During the year thousands of healthy plants have gone to many different projects.
With the autumn-winter rains comes planting time. Many happy customers come ready to collect their orders. Hundreds of our plants go to new homes: Bushland parks, Council areas, around schools, Scout and Guide halls and home gardens, all in the City of Whitehorse. They will look a lot greener in the coming years. What wonderful habitat for our local birds, animals, frogs and butterflies !
