Thursday 5th May, 8 pm: The A-Z of Grevilleas, Graeme Woods
Graham is a regular on the speakers circuit for the District Groups. He
hails from the Keilor Plains/Melton Group. Last year we heard him
wax lyrical about Hakeas, when in doubt plant a hakea was his motto.
Now he has another genus from the Proteaceae for us, the third largest in Australian flora.
Most of us have our particular favourites and know how much the birds and bees
love these plants.
Graeme always entertains and informs and this talk will be no exception.
Don’t miss it!
