This is a great opportunity for you to order some Box Gum Grassy Woodland groundcover plant species for Autumn next year. This is a trial but if it goes well we could look at running this type of community purchase each year.
Oz Plants and the Weddin Community Native Nursery are going to attemp to grow us the 11 different species listed below. These plants would be fabulous to include in any Woodland patches you may have. They could also go into any revegetation projects you may have completed or are working on. Many of them are also truly worthy additions to your garden.
I’ve included the species and they link to further information. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions about any of the species. I love to talk about them as many of you would already know 🙂
Chocolate Lily (Dichopogon strictus)
Hardenbergia (Hardenbergia violacea)
Spreading Flax Lily (Dianella revoluta)
Wallaby Grass (Austrodanthonia sp.)
Climbing Saltbush (Einadia nutans)
Sticky Everlasting Daisy ( Xerochrysum viscosum)
Bulbine Lily (Bulbine bulbosa)
Twining Glycine (Glycine clandestina)
Weeping Grass (Microlaena stipoides)
We cannot guarantee that we will be able to grow all of the species successfully and in the quantities ordered but we will do our best. The plan is to have them ready for planting in Autumn but some may take a bit longer to come up?
Next Steps :
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org listing the species you would like and the amount of plants by Wednesday the 17th November 2021.
We will tally up the total numbers and will then be able to let you know how much it will cost per plant. Note: we are anticipating approximately normal tubestock pricing. You will then confirm your order if you are happy with the pricing.
Best attempts will be made to grow these gorgeous groundcovers and we will keep you all updated on how they are coming along. Then fingers crossed in Autumn they will be ready to plant 🙂
Mid Lachlan Landcare will work with you to adjust numbers to match available plants if lesser numbers germinate.
We have seen all of these great groundcover species during the monitoring of our Box Gum Grassy Woodlands Habitat on Farms project which is great news and so we know they should all be in our landscape around here.
Below are a few pictures of some of the above species I have taken over the last couple of years on farms around the region 🙂
