The fitful summer weather has, surprisingly, helped the plants in the Propagation Unit to flourish. We are looking forward to the start of the growing season with some good rains (and no hail!) in January and February and benign temperatures.
ANGAIR will have a small stall at the Green Living Festival on Saturday April 4 to kick off the year’s plant sales. But the plant varieties will be restricted and the numbers small because of the size of the space. So members are advised that the best chance to buy for autumn planting is the first Members Open Day on Sunday April 5.
We have a wide variety of plants, especially of favourites such as the correas. The rarer plants will, as in the past, be subject to quotas just so that the delights of these local treasures can be spread fairly among members.
We look forward to seeing you at the Propagation Unit between 10 am and noon on the Sunday.

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.
