The early bird catches . . . a great bargain at the Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens one-day plant sale on Saturday, February 13.

For the first time, the sale will be held at the Potty Potters’ propagation pavilion at the southern end of the Gardens. Signs have been placed along the road to point the way. The sale will begin at 8am on Saturday and close at midday – unless sold out earlier.

Vehicles will be available to help people with large purchases take their plant to the car park. The vehicles will also be available for less abled purchasers.

The Gardens’ legendary Potty Potters have prepared a magnificent display of plant of so many varieties; there is surely something for every taste.

Head Potty Potter Bobby White (pictured left) said: “I have never seen our plants in such great condition. The combination of regular rain and warm weather have resulted in thriving greenery and colour.

“This sale will offer a wide range of cottage garden plants in many shapes and sizes. We are also focusing on bare rooted plants including a great collection of clivias, special gingers and bromeliads. As gardeners know well, bare rooted means bargain prices!

“Of course, we will have many samples of favourites such as begonias and geraniums and also some unusual succulents – they are very popular at the moment.”

The sale will be conducted under a Covid Safe plan which means we must ask all visitors to maintain social distancing and take advice and direction from our volunteers. We have arranged to accept card payment on the day and would prefer visitors to pay in this way. We will accept cash.

Entry to the Botanic Gardens is free and visitors can enjoy a juicy sausage sizzle and a hot coffee near the pavilion by the entry to the Gardens.

Visitors are most welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the ambience of the Gardens.
