Dr Karen Sommerville from the Australian PlantBank at Mount Annan explains how to conserve rainforest and orchid seed for propagation and restoration projects. The seeds require special techniques for success due to their unique characteristics.
To celebrate the fourth annual Botanic Gardens Day, enjoy a walk and talk on banksias and Sir Joseph Banks with the Australian Plants Society. We’ll look at local banksias and other plants in flower which are easily seen at the reserve.
There are two options for the guided walk (which takes about an hour): start at 9.30 am OR 11:00 am. Stay for morning tea at 10:30 if you opt for the first session, or come early for morning tea if you choose the 11:00 session.
Morning tea at 10.30 am
