The society holds plant sales twice a year for members and the public.
There are usually about 600 different species, forms and cultivars for sale.
These include plants not available at nurseries and other retail outlets, as well as many plants which are local in origin.
Sales are held on the third Saturday of March and October at the Australian National Botanic Gardens carpark, from 8:30 am.
You can look up your plants in the Plant Label Database.
Our book will be available at the plant sale.
Most of the plants that we sell are described,
with photographs as a guide to Australian native plants in your garden.
Available for $30
In spring, you can plant many different types of plants, including those which need the summer growth to establish before the onset of Canberra winter, ie some cold and frost sensitive plants.
Spring sunlight is quite intense, so select plants which are dark green in colour and sturdy growth.
Plants can lose water quickly in a couple of sunny days.
Watering regularly spring/summer planted plants in the garden is critical this time of the year.
ANPS expect more than 15,000 plants for the October 2017 spring sale.
Autumn is the best time to plant in Canberra for most plant species.
Plant roots grow in the relatively warmer soil and in general, plants face more favourable establishment conditions during autumn.
Some cold and frost sensitive species may be best planted during spring.
ANPS expects about 13 000 plants for the autumn sale, and plants are generally larger.
Please bring bags and boxes to take home your plants.
ANPS volunteers conduct these sales. Volunteer help is essential to ensure the success of our sales.
