All plants are tube stock or smaller. The program aims to promote the re-vegetation of residential and rural properties with local native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Planting not only improves landscape quality but also provides an array of environmental
benefits such as shade, carbon sequestration and shelter for birds, reptiles and small mammals.
The 2022 program saw 50 different varieties of local native plant species totalling over 13,000 seedlings given to residents.
The 2023 Plants for Residents program will be conducted online under a ‘click and pick’ model, with the option for residents to select their preferred scheduled timeslot for choosing their plants.
CLICK AND PICK PLANT REGISTRATIONS OPEN EARLY MAY 2023 (date to be confirmed)
ONLINE BOOKINGS ARE NOT YET OPEN
If your plant preference is exhausted in one timeslot, please check other timeslots to see if there is still availability.
Plants will be distributed evenly over all available timeslots to ensure there is fair distribution of all plant species regardless of the timeslot selected by a resident. NOTE: Plants in each timeslot are allocated on a first ordered basis. Residents are only permitted to select ONE timeslot for plant collection. Unfortunately City staff cannot hold, reserve or deliver plants.
NOTE: The 2022 plant list is for reference purposes only. The 2023 plant list will be released closer to the booking date once confirmation is received by the plant suppliers.
One order per household only. First order received will be deemed the valid order. NOTE: Residents can only select ONE timeslot for plant ordering and collection.
