The nursery

Botanic gardens are all about growing plants! Many of the plants in the Australian PlantBank nursery are grown from seeds held in the seed vault. Plant species that do not readily produce seeds are grown from cuttings, taken from the large potted ‘stock’ plants in the nursery. Maintaining the large garden areas at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan is a big job and we plant out thousands of plants every year.
