Local Indigenous Plant Nurseries
Indigenous Plants for your garden can be purchased from these volunteer-run nurseries.
They also provide most of the plant stock used for revegetating the bushland parks.  Please check their web-sites for opening days/hours and sale days.

Indigenous Gardening Guide

Whitehorse Council’s indigenous gardening guide Indigenous Gardening in Whitehorse can be downloaded here (14MB).

It’s very impressive – covering sustainable, indigenous gardening from scratch – the benefits, planting and maintenance techniques, garden design tips, a full list of the indigenous plants in Whitehorse replete with glorious colour photographs of the plants and a list of weeds.
