Plants for Residents

This program has been delayed until June/July 2020 due to Covid-19

To green up our town, ratepayers and residents can buy vouchers for a tray of 20 mixed native plant seedlings per household at a subsidised cost of $20 per tray.

The timing allows the seedlings sufficient time to become established over the wettest months of the year. Being local native plants, the seedlings are already well adapted to our climate and, once established, should not require a high level of watering.

There are many benefits to growing local plants. The plants themselves are often beautiful when in flower, may have attractive foliage and can attract bush birds and butterflies to your garden.

Available to the Town of Bassendean ratepayers and residents
