Grevillea study group
This study group's aim is to further knowledge about the cultivation, propagation and conservation of members of the genus Grevillea. The group has been particularly active over the past 20 years and includes among its members some of the most knowledgeable people on the botany, ecology and cultivation of grevilleas. Two of its members, Peter Olde (the Group leader) and Neil Marriott are responsible for the superb three-volume Grevillea Book which contains details of all species (including photographs, diagrams, distribution information) as well as an account of the history of discovery and cultivation of the genus and information on propagation and cultivation.
Members of the Group are mainly keen amateurs with no formal horticultural or botanical knowledge, although a number of professionals in those fields also participate. As in all study groups, the members' work is mainly carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time but the Group also undertakes regular field excursions. The members of the group have introduced many species into cultivation and established living collections at several locations.
The group produces three comprehensive newsletters per year and, since the inception of the group, over 100 newsletters have been issued. These document reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. Past issues of the newsletters can be downloaded from this site (see the link below).
The Group also maintains an extensive seed bank. Seed is available to members free or at a nominal cost.

Study Groups focus on researching and learning about specific Australian plants (usually a genus or a related group of genera).
Our plant database has profiles of many such plants for your garden. See here for the plant database.
