There are over 130 different native plant species that the Hawkesbury Community Nursery has propagated. These range from trees, shrubs to groundcovers and suit a variety of situations in the Hawkesbury. These include creeks and riverbanks, paddocks and fence lines, home gardens and revegetation works in a variety of soil types. See the current list of available plants.
The plants can be used for a variety of purposes such as landscaping, erosion prevention, providing native animal habitat, and bushland restoration projects.
