Last chance to pot for year


The Tamahere Community Nursery’s last working session for the year is designed to refill the bank.

The nursery has provided around 2500 plants over the year to gardens and native plant restoration projects and stocks are running a bit low.

The aim on Sunday, December 1 will be to get as many seedlings as possible potted on and growing over the summer period.

“We have a big task ahead in rebuilding stocks,” says organiser Jan Simmons.

“The good news is that many plants are flowering well so it looks promising that it will be a good seeding season. We have already collected and sown seed of titoki and pigeonwood.”

Sunday’s session will start at 1.30pm at the nursery in Devine Road, alongside the Tamahere Community Centre.

Jan hope to see regulars and newcomers alike along for the work and happy socialising that occurs over the pots.
