Keen gardeners in the Whitsundays are invited to the Cannonvale Library Plant Swap for the opportunity to swap plants, cuttings and bulbs and learn how to manage weeds.
Mayor Andrew Willcox said this event is aimed at helping residents get their gardens back on track following Tropical Cyclone Debbie with Whitsunday Catchment Landcare providing expert gardening advice.
“This is a great initiative and one where residents can meet fellow gardeners, swap their plants for some new ones that perhaps they don’t already have and exchange ideas,” Mayor Willcox said.
“Information will also be made available about the different types of weeds and how to manage them. You can even bring in a weed sample or a photo for identification by the experts.
“A big part of our relaxed lifestyle here in the Whitsundays is our pristine environment and you can see all around that plants and trees are regenerating again after the cyclone.
“It’s pleasing to see this new growth and it is the ideal time to spend some time in your garden.”
Details of the event are as follows:
When: Saturday 25 November 2017Time: 9am – 11amWhere: Cannonvale Library, Shute Harbour Road, Whitsunday Plaza.
