Native Plant Giveaways 2017

Hornsby Shire Council holds several open days each year, giving away free native plants to encourage the ecosystem of our Bushland Shire.Native plant giveaway

Did you know? We have changed and improved the way we give out our native plants.

Previously, our Native Plant Giveaway days targeted specific suburbs within Hornsby Shire. Not anymore!

All Native Plant Giveaways are now open to all ratepayers from any Hornsby Shire Council suburb. This means if you want free plants from our nursery you can collect them from any of our Native Plant Giveaway events. See below for upcoming events.

Using local native plants in your garden can attract native wildlife, are better suited to the local soil type and once established, require less water than introduced plants.
