    Annual PLANT SALE by APS North Shore Group

    Please come to our plant sale on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd August.

    We have lots of plants that need new homes. Usually these are snapped up at the annual

    Wildflower, Art and Garden Festival. Unfortunately, this year’s event is not happening due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The plant sale will be for all APS members and friends at Caley’s Pavilion, Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden, 420 Mona Vale Road, St Ives.

    Attendance will be by pre-booking only, with one booking for each 15 minutes between 10 am and 3.30 pm on each day.

    Please book your time with Sue Bowen on 0478 957 951 or

    Book early to increase your chance of getting the time that suits you best.

    This arrangement will ensure safe spacing (according to our Covid-safe plan) and individualised advice on plants.

    We especially encourage new members to come and avail themselves of our individualised advice on plants.

    We prefer to take credit card payments but can take cash. Please bring your own boxes and bags.

    August is an excellent time for flowering and a good time for planting out new plants in your garden.

    We’d really appreciate your help to destock our shadehouse and make some room for our new plants.

    The sale will be postponed/cancelled if it is raining.

    Sue Bowen, President, APS-NSG

    Physical gathering for 12 September cancelled and replaced with a Zoom meeting on the same day at 3 pm.

    Catriona Bate and Phil Trickett have been leaders of the ANPSA Isopogon and Petrophile Study Group since 2015. Catriona and Phil invite us into their garden to show us what species to grow, how to care for and propagate them, new discoveries and the latest developments in cultivation and grafting. We can’t visit in person, but this virtual tour will give us a good taste of the wonderful world of isopogons and petrophiles and hopefully inspire more of us to include them in our own gardens.

    Australian Plants Society NSW is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
