Post Local Plant Species
Hi Guys. Not quite sure where to put this query but here goes :D

I was wondering where/how I go about finding information on native vegetation species that is local to my area? I want to create a small food forest area/orchard in the chook run (a good 400sqm area).

I had a permaculture guy in the other day to give me some ideas on setup. Unfortunately the idea of 'jungle' doesn't appeal to me. I'm an English garden/potager kinda gal :D I like neat and orderly LOL. And I find the idea of a jungle of trees quite claustrophobic. We really should have moved out Mudgee way. I love space LOL!

Anyway, at a bit of a loss as to what species to plant that will be beneficial to a small (not too dense) forest. Any suggestions or links would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Cackleberry - I got a list from my local Council and also info from the local landcare group. Our local nursery is also pretty good but then they could be a bit bias towards their own stock. Good luck!

the local council might have a basic list. A native nursery might be able to help too.

edit: what zaza said! :lol:

Thanks guys. I've sent off some emails. Hopefully I'll get a response. Pretty sure the Council will say 'yep, here's a list. $40 thanks!' LOL

You're in NSW, right? Your local Catchment Management Authority would be another good place to try :)
