If you were inspired reading our article on Growing Native Plants, here's an opportunity to put your good intentions to work.

The Australian Plant Society Sale is on again, with a huge range of stunning Australian plants for you to browse. This is a "must see" event, one of the largest flower shows in Australia. There will be more than 1400 varieties available for you to buy. The full list of native plants for the current sale will be published on the APS website about a week before the sale

All the plants are grown by Society members for the sale, and while most are indigenous there are also some grown for their rarity or special characteristics. And if you buy some plants you will be well informed, with a coloured photo and growing notes provided for each one. Part of the proceeds is put towards conservation projects and various other activities of the society.

Help and information will be freely available, from both individual volunteers and a central Information Desk. The Information Desk will also be using the APSquery tool to assist you to select the plant that closely matches all of your requirements. It's possible to select flower colour, plant size and shape, soil and lighting conditions, and many other attributes to help obtain an exact match to our needs.

If you're new to native plants, be sure to attend one of the informative free talks and demonstrations while you are there. There will be a range of books on display too if you would like to buy something for your home library.
