Visit to private garden:  68 Williams Rd., Bonville

Allan Collyer

This is a garden we keep returning to over the years because it has much to see for different interests. It is 20 acres and includes many Western Australian Grevilleas, most of which have been grafted onto local stock. And there are also 200-300 rainforest trees. Alan started planting over 20 years ago and this is a collector's garden - each of the trees has been planted where it should do best. It is a wonderful opportunity to see the garden maturing. This is a must see garden of the district!

Book Project: Growing Native Plants on the North Coast of NSW

 First published in 2006, we are working on a Second Edition of this excellent resource for native plant enthusiasts and home gardeners.       


In 2018, our group will be monitoring selected local threatened or endangered species (from the NSW Environment Department's Saving Our Species register) by working with local National Parks regeneration projects around Moonee Beach, just north of Coffs Harbour. Once we have gained some experience in the techniques and methodology for data collection, we can extend our efforts to other species in our area. Our initial focus will be on two local species: Sophora tomentosa and Zieria prostrata.
