Indigenous Plant Suppliers in the Newham area
Your Landcare Group
In the past Newham Landcare placed an order each year with TreeProject for volunteer-grown, locally provenanced tubestock -
which were made available to members at 40c, the cost of materials.
In 2013, surplus stock grown by a few individuals and the Newham parents propagating group will be made available to members
at 50c per tube.
A notice will go out in Autumn and Spring indicating what species are available.
Species available varies, but generally includes most of the tree species and a number of under-storey and ground level plants
that are local to this area.
Our Landcare group will sell recycled plastic wrappers and hardwood stakes [in good condition] at 10c per item.
Folding wire frames are available through the group at $1.70 each - these are easy to use, hold wrappers tight and will last for multiple uses.
[they are at least $4.50 from other suppliers]. Contact Penny 5427 0795
If you want to learn how to grow your own:
1. Volunteer to be a TreeProject grower. They provide a training session and you receive a kit with tubes, potting mix,
seed and comprehensive instructions. If you are interested, TreeProject has a web page or ring 9650 9477.
2. Join the Newham Primary [parents & friends] Propagating group. Supported by the Landcare group [expertise, materials
and a meeting place] this group has, since 2010, been growing to order for Melbourne Water as a fund-raiser for the school.
It meets on Thursday mornings during school terms 1 and 4. Contact Penny: 5427 0795.

|Larger scale growers based in Bendigo or Sunbury do not usually use seed local to Newham area but are able to produce large
quantities to order and will use local seed if available or supplied by you. If you want local seed ring Penny Roberts
on 5427 0795 - small quantities may be immediately available or assistance can be given with sourcing local seed.
