Council’s ParksWide Nursery is a wholesale only facility and produces more than 100,000 plants per year in a variety of sizes. Seventy percent of plants are indigenous to the City of Whitehorse. Plants grown at this site are used to revegetate the municipality’s parks, gardens, main road median strips, roundabouts and shopping centres.
Located at 82 Jolimont Road, Forest Hill, the nursery is nationally accredited through NIASA (Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia). It is the only local government nursery in Victoria to hold this accreditation rating, which recognises professional excellence in the production of healthy vigorous plants using best practice techniques.
Volunteers at Bungalook Nursery propagate many species of indigenous plants for distribution to City of Whitehorse bushland parks and schools or individuals wanting to purchase indigenous plants.
Bushland park visits occur the fourth Friday of every third month at 9.30am meeting at the Bush Reserve. As you wander we will look at how plant communities exist naturally, identify indigenous plants and collect plant parts for propagation when appropriate. The visit concludes with morning tea around 12 noon.
