You all know that native plants can be hardy and are best suited to the Australian climate. But how often are they blamed for being woody or leggy and not having many flowers?

Many people believe that natives can care for themselves like they do in the bush. But most native plants will benefit from a simple pruning to ensure they retain a good shape and increase the number of flowers they produce. Selecting the right location with the right soil will also impact on growing healthy, happy plants.

To help you to successfully grow native plants, Trees For Life is holding a FREE practical workshop and “pop-up” native plant sale on Wednesday May 22nd from 10am – 11.30am. “Showing Native Gardens at Their Best” will be presented by horticulturist Jenny Deans and is supported by SA Water.

The workshop is co-hosted by Adelaide Hills Natural Resource Centre and The Summit Community Centre and will be held at 4 Crescent Drive, Norton Summit. Bookings are essential as places are limited, so phone 8406 0500 or email info@treesforlife.org.au
