Free Plant Issue Scheme

If you have purchased a brand new residential block of land in the ACT you are entitled to an allocation of plants from the Yarralumla Nursery. The ACT Government provides these plants to help you beautify your new home and your suburb. There is no further cost to the householder. Below are our most frequently asked questions. The Plant Issue Scheme is open weekdays from 9 am to 3 pm and is closed on weekends and public holidays. See the Plant Issue Scheme flyer for more information.

Am I eligible for an allocation*?

The allocation of trees and shrubs may be registered and collected at any time up to two years from the date of signing the land purchase agreement. This eligibility is transferable if the land is sold during this period. For allocation to newly completed government owned homes, tenants should contact the Housing trust.

*Please note that this only applies to newly released land in the ACT and does not include blocks that were purchased under the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation (Mr Fluffy) Eradication Scheme.

What is my allocation?

Plants to the value of $220 per block can be selected by choosing one of the following three packages:

Note: the total issue can be made to the Body Corporate if all tenants agree.

How do I collect my allocation?

Plants may be collected from the Yarralumla Nursery during opening hours.
