We hope that WA wildflower society members will attend the ANPSA Biennial Conference to be held in Melbourne, Victoria from 30th September to 4th October 2024. Titled “Gardens for Life”, the conference will feature such topics as gardening for wildlife, cultivation to save rare and threatened flora and gardening for well-being. We will be visiting a superb new Australian Botanic Garden in the Dandenong ranges and looking behind the scenes at the Melbourne and Cranbourne botanic gardens program “Raising Rarity” among many other topics. There will be 5- night pre and post conference tours offering an opportunity to see some of Victoria’s best native gardens and some hottest wildflower areas. If you register here now obligation free you will receive the newsletters, the latest of which is here.

The Spring edition of Australian Plants is dedicated to the pre- and post-conference tour destinations. The Autumn edition will cover presenters, topics and day excursions.
