We are very excited to announce that Jane Tonkin from Tonkin Bulbs will be our speaker at the June meeting. The meeting is Saturday 22 June commencing at 2pm at the Uniting Church Fellowship Room, cnr Burwood Hwy and Blackburn Rd in Burwood. Bulbs will be for sale. Visitors welcome.
Jane and her mother, Shirley run Bryan H Tonkin, a rare and unusual bulbs and perennials small retail nursery and mail order business from Kalorama in the Dandenong Ranges. The business dates back to the 1960’s where Bryan was able to offer rare plants often not available in Australia. Through selective propagation and hybridisation, the business is able to offer quality plants that have been grown and naturalised to local conditions.
