Welcome to the Australian Plants for Containers Study Group Website.

The Australian Plants for Containers Study Group is one of a number of Study Groups within the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia) whose aims are to further knowledge about the cultivation, propagation and conservation of Australian native plants. Members of the Study Group focus their activities on investigating and trialing those Australian plants that may be suitable for growing in pots or other types of containers. As in all study groups, the members' work is carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time.

The Study Group has recently been reactivated after a period in recess. The Study Group will publish regular newsletters documenting reports from members into experiences with a range of container-grown species. These reports will assist in assessing the suitability of various species for container cultivation.

If you are interested in the cultivation, propagation, conservation and appreciation of Australia's native flora, and especially if you are interested in growing Australian plants in containers, why not consider joining and helping the Study Group promote these plants more widely.


Membership is available to members of an ANPSA-affiliated Regional Society. If you are not a member of a Regional Society, please refer to the ANPSA Membership Page for further information on joining.
