Sydneysiders can pick up a pot of living colour when the City of Sydney’s biannual display of floral blooms and edible plants finishes this week.
Pots of herbs and floral blooms can be collected from Cathedral Square in Sydney on Sunday 13 November in return for a gold coin donation to support the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
With the spring 2016 display drawing to a close, the City will recycle all the plants in its displays throughout the city centre, Darlinghurst, Pyrmont, Green Square, Taylor Square, Ultimo and Kings Cross.
Herbs to give away include chamomile, lemongrass, chocolate mint and apple mint. Those who prefer blooms can choose from marigold, petunia, viola, alyssum, lobelia and celosia.
The spring 2016 display celebrated the 200th birthday of the Royal Botanic Garden and the Lord Mayor said it was fitting that all money raised at the giveaway should support conservation efforts.
“The Royal Botanic Garden has been dedicated to the preservation of native flora since the colonial era, offering Sydneysiders a natural refuge in the heart of the city,” the Lord Mayor said.
“Preserving 8,900 plant species across 64 hectares is costly, and I encourage everyone to pick up these fantastic pots of living colour and help support the Royal Botanic Garden and its excellent work.
“I’m delighted that all money raised at the Living Colour plant giveaway will go to the foundation and Friends of the Botanic Garden.”
