Background

Keran is a horticulturist (WA 1984) who’s main focus is to assist with the tissue- culture maintenance and cryopreservation of the Declared Rare Flora research collection. We then optimise the horticultural needs for ongoing re introduction and translocation programs. Several species have been successfully returned to their origins e.g. Grevillea scapigera and Symonanthus bancroftii.

Work interests

Reversing the oft-held view that bush plants are boring. Working with restoration and research programs. Looking out for plants that have garden potential and working with volunteers and the Friends of Kings Park Plant Sale group.
