Candlebark May 2023 Plant Sale

The month of May is a great time to get into the garden, we have had some good rain
and the soil is still holding some warmth to get the tube stock settled in.
The Sale area will be clearly marked. The following list will
give you an indication of species.
Beautiful well established tube stock:
Arthropodium strictum, Patersonia occidentalis, Coprosma quadrifida, Dianella
tasmanica, Pultenaea daphnoides, Olearia varieties, Allocasuarina littoralis, Acacia:
dealbata, mearnsii, melanoxylon, stricta and ulicifolia. A good range of Eucalyptus
species for those who have space away from the house.
All of the plants for sale are clearly marked Tubes at $ 2.00 each.
All other Retail tubes will remain at $3.00 for members and $3.50 for Public. This is
great value. The Retail and Sale plants are a beautiful healthy stock.
SALE – FOUR SUNDAYS IN MAY – 7th 14th 21st & 28th
OPEN: 10am to 2pm
The nursery will be open as usual during May. However, the sale will be confined to
the four Sundays in May to ensure the Nursery can function as normal for the rest of
the month.


Good News!

Candlebark volunteers are working hard to get our retail area up and running again.  We anticipate late next week, but as soon as we know a firm date and opening times we will let you know.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Melbourne Water Stream Frontage

Melbourne Water Stream Frontage program

If you own land that fronts onto a river or creek, you may be eligible for funding to help you manage the land. The Melbourne Water Stream frontage management program supports work that protects or enhances riverbanks, such as weed control, fencing and planting native vegetation. Candlebark Nursery has worked alongside Melbourne Water and assisted with providing plants for their program over many years. It is wonderful to see how good land management and a focus on revegetation can improve the environment.
