Local Indigenous Nurseries
There are many ways you can help care for our local native flora and fauna. Planting Indigenous (locally native) plants in your garden is a great way to attract local wildlife such as insects and birds. All of the species planted on the City of Greater Dandenong community planting days are indigenous species. Such plants are adapted to the local environment so are drought tolerant, provide food and shelter for local fauna and are representative of local character.
There are a number of nurseries where you can purchase your own local native plants. See the Indigenous Flora and Fauna Associations Indigenous Nurseries website for a list, but here is a few local indigenous nurseries.
