The Kings Park horticulture team is hard at work this season planting tens of thousands of native flora throughout Kings Park and Botanic Garden.
During the winter planting season the team will plant an incredible approximately 28,500 new plants throughout cultivated garden bed areas in the Western Australian Botanic Garden and parkland areas.
This includes trees, shrubs, perennials, groundcovers and spring annuals.
The season started – as is generally does every year – with the planting of 1,500 kangaroo paws in early May.
Since then, the team has followed a well-planned planting schedule that is due for completion in August when they plant the final icing on the cake: the spring annuals.
The majority of the planting is undertaken by the 20-strong Horticultural Displays team, with assistance from horticulture trainees and Garden Carer volunteers.
This herculean team effort creates Kings Park’s internationally recognised stunning wildflower spectacular in spring!
