The Growing Group was formed to foster an interest in plant propagation and nursery management and to raise funds in support of the Botanic Gardens through the sale of plants.
With a membership of about 20 volunteers who work either Tuesday or Friday morning at the Mt Lofty Nursery. The Group collects propagating materials (e.g. seeds, soft and hardwood cuttings) from rare and unusual plants growing in the three Botanic Gardens, which are cultivated until ready for sale.
The Group's activity is supported with an on-site glasshouse, shade-house, a large area for storage and a computer database record system.
Some plants are available from in front of North Lodge, Plane Tree Drive, ABG.
