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.

The Chris Steele Scott Pavilion in Mt Lofty Botanic Garden opened in 2015 following a partnership with the University of South Australia’s School of Architecture and Design.

Fourth-year student Sam Chua’s pavilion design was chosen from more than 100 entries in the resulting competition, with the project overseen by lead architect, David Gilbert.

The Pavilion is named in memory of the late Mrs Chris Steele Scott OAM – a lifetime supporter of the Botanic Gardens of South Australia and a founding member of the Mount Lofty Botanic Garden Support Group.

Take a seat at the Pavilion during your next visit, relax and let the beauty, peace and tranquillity of the Garden wash over you.
