FOBG Newsletter

The Friends produce 3 Newsletters each year. ‘Papyrus’ contains information about the Gardens, features on plants and people and details of horticultural events around Melbourne.

The latest edition of Papyrus is available for Members only  and is another bumper edition! As well as the usual reports on our regular activities:


    • In the latest in our series My Garden former FOBG President Michele Adler relates the creation of a Community Wetland at her Gippsland Property Peach Flat
    • Our new series ‘Graduate of the Month’ highlights Burnley’s greatest contribution to horticulture in Australia: its graduates. This month’s Graduate is well known Media personality Rob Pelletier who has had an inspiring, varied career in horticulture. These graduate profiles are also posted on our Facebook page, and if you missed any, previous profiles are archived on our website.
    • Dr. Claire Farrell tells us about her research into the creation of Woody Meadows
    • Our Patron Dr. Greg Moore discusses a topic that has been of particular relevance in recent times, with the dramatic title When a tree comes crashing down.
