Planting on the verge

Vincent mayor Emma Cole, Mary Charlton, Mia Pitassi and Helen Ingman from Tools n Things Library, and Andrea Freeman from Vincent’s parks team get ready for the yearly Vincent native plant sale, which is back at North Perth Common April 17.

Vincent’s bringing in 5000 native tube stocks and a forest of trees.

Vincent residents get heavily subsidised prices and anyone who’s signed up to the adopt-a-verge program can collect their 20 free plants there.

Mayor Emma Cole says native plants are a smart switch given how little water they use, along with providing snacks and homes for wildlife. The folk from the Tools n Things Library will also be there, in case you need to borrow a shovel or hoe to put your new plants in.

It runs 8am to 11am at the corner of Fitzgerald and View Streets.
