Winter is a good time for planting in the park as the soil is softer and the plants get well watered-in naturally. However, the planters need to be hardy soles to deal with the cold and often wet conditions. Over the last six months we have planted around 650 shrubs and grasses – mainly in The Annulus environ – with 150 hours of volunteer time. We have had to upgrade the guards used around the plants to combat the grazing kangaroos that have been a real problem devouring last years plants. You can see our efforts from the Main Yarra Trail 100m downstream of the carpark.
