Our seedsticks are weeping red bottlebrush… great native for the Canberra climate. You can simply take the seedstick, follow the instructions and plant your very own bottlebrush.

And there’ll be lots more on to celebrate our environment.

I also have a job and won’t be going. Would have gone on a Sunday.

Very cool, wish it was outside office hours.

This sounds great! Love the idea of seed balls and seed sticks being used by guerilla gardeners to get more natives into the reserves around Canberra, and hopefully outgrow the feral plants like cotoneaster.
