Through rain, hail or sunshine, buyers from around Western Australia line up for the Friends plant sales. These sales provide plenty of opportunities for buyers to build stunning gardens with plants not always available from commercial nurseries.
COVID-19 information: to allow for distancing between customers, the number of people that can enter the sale area at one time will be limited. We encourage you to be ready to make a contactless EFTPOS payment, rather than bringing cash. We also ask you maintain a 1.5m distance between yourself, our volunteers and other members of the public while you are in the queue and sale area. Make sure you check in with the WASafe app and please do not attend if you feel unwell.
Entry gates will shut a quarter of an hour before the advertised closing time but may close earlier than the advertised time if the plants sell out. The plant sale will go ahead if it is raining, but severe weather warnings may require it to be cancelled.
The proceeds from sales go directly to the Friends of Kings Park, and are put towards supporting research and projects in Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
