The Mossman Nursery continues to grow after a busy year that saw 17,900 plants given to ratepayers, schools, kindergartens and not for profit organisations.
Council also uses the plants for re-vegetation activities, public parks & gardens and other council projects.
Nursery operations will be closed to the public from 19th December 2019 and will re-open on the 3rd February 2020.
The closure period allows the nursery time to re-stock and increase native plants numbers after the very busy year.
Mossman Nursery staff would like to thank everyone for their support and looks forward to another successful year in 2020.
Did you know?
Douglas Shire Council’s Nursery has been operational for about 30 years. The majority of plants are grown from seeds that are collected locally to keep the genetics of the area intact wherever possible. Many staff carry bags in their pocket or car for seed collection, and there are also a number of dedicated volunteers that help in the nursery, who also assist with the provision of seed collections.
Work that the Nursery staff do:
- Growing for re-vegetation and to restore habitat of degraded or weed infested lands
- Grow to contract for other people’s projects
- Works within Council for projects
- Growing plants for Council gardens
- Plants for ratepayers and the community
The Council Nursery supplies ratepayers with 6 plants per calendar year, so come along and say hello during these times:
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday every week from 10.30 am until 3.30 pm.
