HSOC Trial Garden at Bruce

The 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.

Scroll down to find the photo gallery.


Working bees are held monthly on the last Saturday of the month from 9.00am to noon (come and go as convenient) unless the date conflicts with another major HSOC event. Dates for the first half of 2019 are:

26 January
23 February
30 March
27 April
25 May
29 June

Participants in Working Bees must be HSOC members for insurance purposes. For further information on the garden, email contactus@hsoc.org.au or phone 02 6248 5862. Members are always welcome to visit the garden on working bee days.
