Native Plants Giveaway

Native Plants GiveawayNative plants giveaway

The Native Plants Giveaway is back this May.

After last year's cancellation due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are glad to once again be hosting this fantastic event. If you want to help support native birds and bees and build an attractive greenspace without large watering requirements, make sure you've got this one on your diary. The Native Plants Giveaway was first established in 2018, as a way to assist residents in building waterwise gardens and to help support the establishment of neighbourhood habitat for wildlife. Due to its popularity, the event is now held on an annual basis and the amount of plants given away has more than tripled.

This year's event will be held on Sunday 2 May and Monday 3 May from 8am - 2pm at the Rockingham Golf Club. See the flyer below for more details.

More information

Autumn and winter are a great time of year to get your plants in the ground as you will be able to capitalise on seasonal rainfall. Once established, native plant varieties require very little watering as they are usually drought tolerant plants, adapted to our unique conditions.

Besides boosting your home's appearance, studies show that being surrounded by greenery can help clean the surrounding air, create a sense of wellbeing and help to lower levels of stress and anxiety.
