Grow local booklet
The Hobart Group of the Australian Plants Society Tasmania has compiled this booklet to introduce gardeners to the joys of growing local native plants in their gardens. Further information on growing these and many more local native plants can be obtained at Society meetings and from our website.

The booklet covers plants in the southern Natural Resource Management region (approximately south and east of a line from the Freycinet peninsula, west through to Derwent Bridge, then south to Strathgordon and Port Davey.)


It will be available FREE from Tasmanian State Libraries, municipal offices in the region, the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and the Sustainable Living Centre.

Copies will also be available from Nurseries that stock local native plants:
