Native Plant Subsidy Scheme

The annual Native Plant Subsidy Scheme is back. During the month of May Cottesloe residents can purchase up to 80 plants per household at the subsidised price of $2.50 each from APACE Nursery (1 Johannah Street, North Fremantle).

The scheme aims to encourage biodiversity and local habitats in the western suburbs. Take advantage of the cooler weather and transform your garden or verge. Visit for details and available species and stock. This is a Western Suburbs Alliance initiative. Please take proof of residency when you visit APACE. 

If you’re planning to create a waterwise garden, Town of Cottesloe residents are welcome to free mulch from the West Metro Recycling Centre. There’s no need to call ahead – just visit the centre in Shenton Park (bring a shovel) and help yourself! Find out more here.

Preparing your garden for planting

The Town of Cottesloe has worked with the Town of Mosman Park to develop a presentation that details simple steps that you can do to prepare your garden to be more sustainable and save water - this is critical even when planting native plants. To view the presentation click here.
