North Shore APS Plant Sale
13th March - Saturday
9am to 4.30pm
North Shore will sell plants from our shadehouse at Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garde. We have a wide range of plants needing new homes.
The sale is for APS members and friends, and is by prior booking only. This will ensure Covid compliance, as well as avoiding over-crowding in our shadehouse and the car park. We will issue a list of the plants available to attendees prior to the sale to help with plant selection.
Please book with Sue Bowen, email@example.com or 0478 957 951. You will need to bring your own boxes/bags and we prefer payment by credit card. Bring wet weather gear if raining.
