Verging on a good thing: Native plant subsidy scheme
Monday 1 May 2017

We’ve partnered with the Western Suburbs Regional Organisation of Councils (WESROC), is offering all City of Subiaco households and businesses up to eighty local native plants for their verge and garden at the subsidised cost of $1.50 each.
As well as enhancing the biodiversity of the area, native plants require little water or fertiliser once they’re established, making them the perfect choice for establishing a hardy but beautiful garden and verge at your home.
Plants on offer include trees, shrubs, sedges and ground covers. Popular native plants, such as kangaroo paws and grevilleas, are just two of the species available.

Where can I get my subsidised plants?

Plants can be purchased from Apace Nursery between Monday 1 May and Saturday 27 May.


Apace Nursery, 1 Johannah Street, North Fremantle

Opening hours

8.30am to 3.30pm (Monday to Friday)
9am to 12pm (Saturdays)

To take advantage of the subsidised cost, simply present Apace staff with proof of City of Subiaco residency (e.g. driver’s licence, utility bill etc.).

The scheme is limited and operates on a first–come, first-served basis. Find out more about the city’s verge programs under the your garden and the environment tab
