|HSOC Trial Garden at Bruce
Horticultural Society has a garden at Bruce,
adjacent to the Canberra Institute of Technology, where plants are being
trialled by members and grown to demonstrate what grows well in
Canberra and surrounds. Findings will be recorded for the purposes of
future editions of The Canberra Gardener, and information used in other
HSOC publications and on the HSOC website.

give more plants next season, and it will show some methods for storing
the cut tubers.
The Demonstration will take place at the HSOC's trial garden, on the corner of Battye St and Purdie St in Buce.
