The Geraldton Regional Herbarium has got a facebook page! Geraldton Regional Herbarium

Our herbarium collects and catalogues local Native Plants from the MIdwest Region of Western Australia.

If you are interested in identifying local native plants which include our glorious wildflowers, you might like to visit the Geraldton Regional Herbarium group.

It is run by a group of skilled volunteers who collect specimens from plants in their natural habitats and record information about them. These flowering specimens are pressed, dried and formally identified. The plant specimens and their records are filed for reference. These specimens can last for more than 100 years when looked after.

The Herbarium group meets on Mondays at 201 Foreshore Drive in Geraldton. Contact ph:0429644346. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more or volunteer to help.

This summer has broken all the rules. With only the occasional hot day, we can grow vegetables which we usually need to plant in September and October and even April (in order to avoid the hot weather). We always have shadecloth that we can roll on or off those hot days. Here is our seed calendar. drylands.org.au/seeds/
We are open today!
Open Sunday 10.00am to 5.00pm

Hot day activities at Yilgarn Seeds... the Drylands Permaculture Farm. Collecting carrot seed.Despite the 42C hot day, I couldn't help myself. I had to collect carrot seed! Here (in Geraldton at the Drylands Permaculture Farm where we raise Yilgarn Seeds) we plant carrots early winter and harvest seed midsummer. All Seasons is an open-pollinated (non hybrid) seed variety. It produces seed here in the first year unlike many other carrot varieties which are biennial. While All-seasons carrot is a common commercial variety, it is quite often grown in the UK and resold in Australia especially if you buy it from the supermarket or hardware stores - check the back of your seed packet !). Depending on where you live in Australia, the growing conditions can be very different to where it was originally grown and as a consequence it may not grow as well. Over the last few years we have begun adapting and selecting it for our area in the midwest. ... See MoreSee Less
