Free Na­tive Plants!

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Once again, a gen­er­ous donor has en­abled Land­care to of­fer free lo­cal na­tive plants to landown­ers who live in Hornsby Coun­cil’s ru­ral area, or Hills Shire along Old North­ern Road or close to it. We want the plants to go to peo­ple who are clear­ing privet or lan­tana or other weeds and who wish to reveg­e­tate with na­tive plants. Also those who want to reveg­e­tate their road­side na­ture strip, or cre­ate a wildlife cor­ri­dor.

If that sounds like you, con­tact Barry Lees on 9653 3691. I will help you work out what plants would be suit­able from the list of plants that are cur­rently avail­able from 2 Nurs­eries. I will then ad­vise them to ex­pect a call from you to or­gan­ise a visit. For Hornsby Shire res­i­dents, the plants will come from the Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery at Pen­nant Hills. For Hills Shire res­i­dents, the plants will come from Bunya Na­tive Nurs­ery at Du­ral. The min­i­mum num­ber of plants will be 1 tray of 40 tubes. Trays and tubes are to be re­turned to the Nurs­eries or to me when you have fin­ished with them.

You can­not buy lo­cal na­tive plants from re­tail nurs­eries, so this is a spe­cial op­por­tu­nity. The plants are top qual­ity. I look for­ward to hear­ing from you.
