The society has an active propagation group (ANPSPG). Members gather about once a month to propagate plants by cuttings and from seed. There are two locations for these activities, one at CIT in Bruce and the other in Queanbeyan. Most of the plants are propagated by cuttings which are prepared at cutting bees and placed into one of three society hotbeds. Rooted cuttings are then potted up into individual pots at potting up bees and placed in one of three shadehouses. Some plants, such as wattles, are grown from seed. The activities are planned on an annual basis (the propagation calendar). Details of time and locations are found in Bulletin and the Event Calendar.
We welcome new members and provide basic instructions on how to propagate.
Plants grown by ANPSPG volunteers are sold at our spring and autumn plant sales. There are many species of plants propagated by the group to offer diverse plant selection at our sales. These plants are also an important source of income that supports operations of the society and other activities.
