Free Native Plants!

Once again, a generous donor has enabled Landcare to offer free local native plants to landowners who live in Hornsby Council’s rural area, or Hills Shire along Old Northern Road. We want the plants to go to people who are clearing privet or lantana or other weeds and who wish to revegetate with native plants. Also those who want to revegetate their roadside nature strip, or create a wildlife corridor or a similar activity.

If that sounds like you, contact Barry Lees on 9653 3691. I will help you work out what plants would suit your property from those available at either of 2 Nurseries. I will then advise the nursery to expect a call from you to pick up your plants. For Hornsby Shire residents, the plants will come from the Community Nursery at Pennant Hills. For Hills Shire residents, the plants will come from the Community Nursery at Baulkham Hills. The minimum number of plants will be 1 tray of 40 tubes. Plants can include trees, shrubs or groundcovers. Trays and tubes are to be returned to the Nurseries or to me when you have finished with them. You cannot buy local native plants from retail nurseries, so this is a special opportunity. The plants are top quality. I look forward to hearing from you.
