Territory And Municipal Services are letting us know that if you’ve bought new land, and have any sort of garden to put plants in, you can get $220 worth of plants from the Yarralumla Nursery.
“Under the ACT Government?s Plant Issue Scheme, Canberrans who have purchased a new residential block of land in the ACT are entitled to an allocation of plants from the Yarralumla Nursery to the value of $220.
“With the ACT?s ever-growing population spreading into new suburbs such as Bonner, Casey and Wright, we want to encourage new landowners to maintain Canberra?s scenic beauty and reputation as the “Garden City?.
“Residents in the ACT are encouraged to take advantage of this initiative to beautify their new home and suburb.”
Mr Godfrey said that Yarralumla Nursery specialises in cold climate garden plants suitable to the ACT, rare and threatened plants, tube stock for rural plantings and bird attracting plants.
“All the plants sold at Yarralumla Nursery are grown on site by the production side of the Nursery. This allows Canberrans to access an extremely wide range of locally grown plants suitable for our climate.
Apparently you can still collect the plants up to two years after the date of the land purchase agreement.
