Goodeniaceae Study Group Form

Signup form for the Goodeniaceae Study Group that sends a notification to the Study Group leader.


Newsletters are produced several times per year to record activities and experiences of Group members in cultivating Australian Goodeniaceae species. Some back issues are available for downloading.

Newsletter Archive

The Study Group produces informative newsletters documenting reports from members into cultivation issues in various climatic zones, container types, potting mixes and other resources. The following newsletters are available for download (Note: These are in pdf format and will require a PDF Reader to view them. Free readers include Foxit Reader and Adobe Acrobat Reader).

More recent newsletters will be uploaded about a year in arrears, so that current Study Group members have privileged access to current content.

You can search the contents of the newsletters using the Search box above but note that early issues have been scanned from paper copies before being processed via optical character recognition (OCR). As the success of OCR is highly dependent on the quality of the scans, searching may not be fully successful for earlier issues.
