The Friends of Kings Park Horticultural Advice and Support team provide a free advisory service on caring for and growing native plants for home gardeners and community groups.

Need native gardening advice?The service is focused on WA native plant species in urban gardens and provides practical advice on propagation, potting, planting, pests and pruning. The Friends of Kings Park Horticultural Advice and Support team (formerly known as Kings Park Volunteer Master Gardeners) enjoy spreading the word about WA's glorious native plants and how to grow them successfully.
