During the Group’s period of operation, its newsletters documented reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. These newsletters assisted in assessing the suitability of various species for cultivation in a range of climatic zones and in preparing articles for the Society’s journal Australian Plants.
The newsletters were also used to compile two comprehensive reports into species and cultivars of Melaleuca and related genera, covering their performance under cultivation in a range of districts, both within Australia and overseas. The reports covered factors such as soil types, drainage, pests, fertilizing, frost tolerance, flower colour and flowering times.
