The Growing Friends propagate a great variety Australian native plants from cuttings, divisions and seed, throughout the year. Many of these can be seen in the Cranbourne Gardens.
Plants may be sold to members, the public, local council, etc. Proceeds are used by the Friends to support selected projects for the Gardens. Plants are also used for educational and revegetation purposes.
- Plants are grown for education purposes for school students visiting the Gardens organised by the Gardens’ Education Team.
- Sales to the public are held in Spring, Autumn and Winter in the Gardens as well as weekly in the Growing Friends nursery for members only.
- The City of Casey purchases plants for their Gardens for Wildlife Program and from time to time for revegetation programs.
Please note that all Special Interest Group members must conform with the RBGV’s Child Safe Program – Find out more.
