Head down to Cathedral Square in Sydney, on Sunday 13 November to pick up a pot of living colour in return for a gold coin donation. Your donation will go towards supporting the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. With summer just around the corner, the City of Sydney will recycle all plants that have been on display throughout spring. Plants to be recycled will come from Darlinghurst, Pyrmont, Green Square, Taylor Square, Ultimo and Kings Cross.
“The City re-homes or composts every plant used in Living Colour, ensuring there’s no waste when we brighten up Sydney twice a year with these beautiful floral displays. Preserving 8,900 plant species across 64 hectares is costly, and I encourage everyone to pick up these fantastic pots of living colour and help support the Royal Botanic Garden and its excellent work,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
If you are looking for herbs, there will be chamomile, lemongrass, chocolate mint and apple mint on offer. Those who prefer blooms, you can pick up marigold, petunia, viola, alyssum, lobelia and celosia.
