The May Drive Parkland is home to the Backyard Botanicals garden, developed by the Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority in conjunction with the Kings Park Volunteer Master Gardeners.

Backyard Botanicals garden

The 'grow-me-at-home' garden demonstrates how easy it is to grow Western Australian native plants in your own backyard. The garden showcases native plants that are hardy, water-wise and beautiful, attract native birds and are all readily available from local native plant nurseries or at one of the quarterly Native Plant Sales in Kings Park.

Native plant notes provide detailed information on many of the species planted, covering major landscape categories likely to be used in a suburban garden. 

If you would like to create your own native garden or need advice on how to improve your existing one, you may be interested in coming along to one of the free Dig It With Coffee sessions. Meet with a horticulturist, get some gardening tips and chat with a Kings Park Volunteer Master Gardener over a cup of coffee at Zamia Cafe.
