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.
2018 plant sales dates are:
Sunday 18 March 8.30am -12 noon
Sunday 20 May 9.00-2pm
Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 September 10am-4pm
Sunday 4 November 8.30am-12 noon
Please note: Gates will shut a quarter of an hour before closing time.
Plant sales are held at the Exhibition Ground, and may closer earlier than the advertised time if the plants sell out. The proceeds from sales go towards supporting research and projects in Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
Help and advice are on hand at these sales from Kings Park Volunteer Master Gardeners, experts in growing Western Australian native plants.
The plants are sold under the shade of the Tuart and Marri trees surrounding the Exhibition Ground in Kings Park.
A pickup area has been set aside in the car park for those customers buying large quantities of plants. There will be volunteers available to assist customers to transport their purchases to the pickup area.
