Ipswich City Council will bring plants to the people when a mobile nursery is held at Brassall on Saturday, 10 February.
The mobile nursery is being presented by Division 6 Councillor Cheryl Bromage and will run from 8am to 11am at Brassall Shopping Centre at 68 Hunter Street.
Cr Bromage said each resident was entitled to six free plants per year under council’s Free Plant Program.
“The Free Plant Program has been extremely popular since it began, with more than 500,000 plants having been given away,” Cr Bromage said.
“The mobile nursery ensures everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of the program by bringing the plants to the people.
“Council staff will be on hand to discuss with residents what plants may be suitable for their garden.”
Ratepayers and renters are both eligible to receive the trees, but renters must present a copy of their landlord’s current rates notice.
Cr Bromage said residents could still collect their free plants outside of the mobile nursery.
“If you can’t make it along to the mobile nursery on Saturday you can collect your free plants from council’s nurseries at Queens Park or Goodna. Visit council’s website for information on when each of the nurseries are open,” Cr Bromage said.
