Diseases and Pests
The Gardens does not operate a diagnostic service. Any enquiries should be directed to the Plant Pest and Disease Diagnostic Service, Institute for Horticultural Development, 621 Burwood Hwy, Knoxfield. Call (03)9210 9222 or fax (03) 9887 3501.
Mussels – The mussel shells in the Diversity Garden are currently not available at retail stores. We suggest that visitors contact mussel farms or mussel processing plants (check the Yellow Pages for your closest location) if they wish to purchase some mussel shells.
Rope – This can be purchased through shops that provide fittings and fixtures for boats. These suppliers are often referred to as Chandleries. Again, check the Yellow Pages for your closest supplier.
Dogs and pets are not permitted within RBG Cranbourne, including the Australian Garden and car-parking areas. Native animals are extremely sensitive to the sound of barking and the lasting scents of dogs and other animals. Native animals are also vulnerable to the diseases, pathogens and parasites that dogs can unwittingly bring into the Gardens. Smaller animals can be killed and larger animals disturbed and frightened by dogs and cats.
Donation boxes can be found at the Visitor Centre and The Gardens Shop. Any enquiries about donations, sponsorship or the Director’s Circle should be directed to the Development team on (03) 9252 2300.
