Plants to Residents

2011

The Town of Bassendean is offering their residents native plant seedlings at the substantially discounted price of 50 cents each.


To take advantage of the opportunity to showcase some of Western Australia’s unique flora in your garden, simply bring your rates notice or a document which provides proof of residency within the Town to:
The Old Perth Road Markets

Old Perth Road (stall will be located on Parker Street)



Bassendean
on
Sunday 29th May 2011 from 9.00am till 11.00am
The timing of this scheme allows the seedlings sufficient time to become established over the wettest months of the year. Being local native plants, the seedlings are already well adapted to our climate and, once established, should note require a high level of watering.
There are many benefits to growing local plants. The plants themselves are often beautiful when in flower, may have attractive foliage and can attract bush birds and butterflies to your garden. Furthermore, unlike potentially invasive exotic garden plants, local native plants do not pose an additional weed risk to the Town’s natural areas. Many of the seedlings available in this scheme are naturally compact and attractive, however, like all garden plants, these plants will require some maintenance to suit a garden situation.
As this is a well supported scheme, a limit of 30 seedlings per property is permitted.


If you are interested, why not come prepared with a wishlist? You can browse plant types online at http://www.apacewa.org.au/nursery - just select your suburb and soil type and you’re away!
