Sue and Christine at the washing station
The big events of the autumn have finished with the exciting (and huge) planting at the Anglesea Primary School late last month. So now it’s back to preparing for spring plantings for the members’ day and sales at the Wildflower Weekend and Art Show in late September.
But we need your help. The cost of the forest tubes that we use for seedlings has gone up to nearly nine cents a tube. Recycling helps us keep costs down. So please if you have any tubes (the ones that are 50 cm wide and 125 cm deep) recycle them by leaving them outside the ANGAIR office. We’d also be grateful if you could wash the tubes as this ensures that we don’t introduce nasty soil pathogens into the propagating centre. And it saves us time that is better spent in actual propagating on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. You’re welcome to drop in then to see what we do.

We meet at at the propagation unit behind the ANGAIR office, each Tuesday and Thursday at 9.00 a.m. and continue until we finish at about 12.00 p.m. Anyone with an interest in achieving something special is welcome, and no experience is required.
The ANGAIR Plant Propagation Group is very short of forest tubes and always like more cartons. Please leave them at the ANGAIR Office. Thanks in advance for your support.
