About Propagating Gardeners
This couple, Maureen and Keith, have always enjoyed gardening, and it was in about 1997, when they retired, that they really became avid gardeners!



A few years after this they bought a new property which had more room and a larger garden for their hobby. They describe their garden now as "eclectic". They have many, many plants on their corner block and have 3 nature strips, two of them with large Eucalyptus nicholii as street trees.

They now have mainly natives as well as a cottage garden with a wide variety of plants.

In turn, this love of gardening turned into a fundraising, twice a year, plant sale. The charity they support is National Breast Cancer, after Maureen was diagnosed with this disease. They were also nominated and awarded a community service award for their Huge Plant Sale. While they have these plants sales, people are free to wander around their garden, and admire its beauty!

The plant sale has now become the Huge Plant Sale and seems to get bigger every year. In their April 2018 sale, they raised a whopping $11,000.00 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation!
