Growing Subtropical Plants in Cool Climates - Master Class @ Online - Via Zoom

Holidaying at home might be wearing a bit thin, but creating a tropical paradise in your home garden can bring holiday-like joy. There’s a range of subtropical plants that are great for permaculture and home food gardens and that can be grown in cooler climates if you know how. Avocados, babacos, macadamias, bananas, coffee, turmeric, galangal and ginger – have we got your interest!?

Join Karen Sutherland in this Master Class on successfully growing subtropical plants in Australia.

This class will be most suitable for gardeners in the Southern parts of Australia, including Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and the cooler parts of NSW. However, anyone who would like to learn more about growing subtropical plants is welcome to attend.

Please Note:

  • If you are unable to attend the live online class, a recording will be available to watch for one week following the session. Please purchase a ticket prior to the class date to access the recording.
