PA250897 s gardenWhether you are planning a new garden or renovating an established one, whether you have a tiny city courtyard or a large rural block, Australian native plants are a great choice in the Canberra climate. They can provide maximum satisfaction with minimum aintenance, provided care is taken with selection of plants and there has been a thorough preparation of the site.    

For detailed information on establishing and maintaining a native garden in the Canberra Region, consult the Society's book: Australian Plants for Canberra Region Gardens and other cool climate areas, 4th edition, 2001, available from the Society and all good bookshops.

We have additional information on where to buy native plants, guides on buying plants, planting, maintenance, and establishing low water gardens and an "Indigenous gardens" using local plants.
