A New Place to buy Native Plants

Peacehaven Botanic Park in Kuhls Road, Highfields, has a little nursery, run by volunteers. Up until now it has opened on Thursday mornings only. It is operated by the Friends of Peacehaven, and raises funds for this exciting new Botanic Garden venture.
Beginning next week 2nd April 2011, it will also be open on Saturday mornings.
At present it is crammed full of plants at the bargain prices of $2.50 and $3.00 thanks to the donation, by Toowoomba Regional Council, of leftovers from the Free Tree Giveaway. Some of the plants are rarely if ever available in ordinary nurseries. One of them is the yellow ash (see article below), an excellent small shade tree for gardens.
So hop in, for bargains!
