Australian National Botanic Gardens presents

Banksia Festival: A Growing Friends Perspective

Celebrate the opening of the new Banksia Garden and the Garden's 50th birthday year



About this Event




The Growing Friends group of the Australian National Botanic Gardens will open its monthly propagation session to a limited number of guests. See how the group propagates cuttings and/or seeds of native plants. All propagation is done from material collected within the Gardens under the supervision of Garden staff.

Whilst each month’s propagation session is dependent on what material is available, it is expected that guests will be able to help an experienced group member in the preparation and planting of cuttings. Also, there will be an opportunity to take a tour of the group’s plant nursery area.

This is a free event but there are a limited number of participants. Bookings essential

Meet at the Visitor Information Centre at 10.30am.
