Officially launched in 2016, Bass Coast Landcare Network's Indigenous plant nursery has been a huge success. We currently have two greenhouses, two hardening off areas, a wetland pond and a potting up area. The nursery relies heavily on dedicated volunteers, who do great work collecting seed, propagating, and caring for our native plants, so that by late Autumn-Winter each year we have a nice supply of around 30,000 plants for revegetation projects. In keeping with the social side of the group, visits to other nurseries or places of interest, such as French Island, are organised during the quieter months.
The nursery group meets every Friday from 9.30am-12.30pm in Bass, at the Bass Recreation Reserve.

You can also Pre-Order your plants for 2022 Planting season
With nursery volunteers busily sowing and propagating thousands of seedlings, we are now taking orders for native plants, which will be grown-to-order and ready to collect in late Autumn/early Winter of 2022. Stock is grown in hico cells (trays of 40 plants)
We grow the standard range of species for revegetation within the Gippsland Plains and Strzelecki Ranges and have started growing colourful herbs and ground covers such as yam daisies, trigger plants, bulbine and chocolate lilies, pelargoniums, forest star wort, hounds tongue, and veronica.
