Explore your garden plants – workshop with Paul Plant
Saturday 11th February, 9.30-11.30am.

At B4C Sustainability Centre, 21 Wright St, Carindale

Learn about both native and exotic plants. Find out why some plants are best adapted to our local climate and others are not. Find out why some fruiting plants flower but don’t set fruit. This session is for passionate gardeners who want to know how to improve the garden with a basic understanding of botany and ecology.
Your workshop facilitator, Paul Plant, was born in Brisbane and has worked as a nurseryperson, landscaper and interior plantscaper, and has been involved in training, garden judging and guest speaker roles. Paul is a qualified horticulturist and over the years has done many experiments in his own garden to see what works and what doesn’t. Paul will give you advice and answer questions such as why do plants fail? Why can’t I grow what I use to? Why are fruit not producing? And much more.

We welcome you to bring in flowers (the bigger the better – small flowers are difficult to dissect, big flowers are easier) of plants, we will be DISSECTING them!

We’ll take a break for some light refreshments. Please bring your reusable water bottle. You may like to wear sun and insect protection so that you can also comfortably explore B4C’s garden while there.

This workshop is made possible thanks to the Brisbane City Council ‘Cultivating Community Gardens’ grant.

$10 per person. Bookings essential. Book here.
