Welcome to the Lilium and Bulb Society of South Australia Inc.



The Society meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month (except July) at 7.30pm in The Village Well Community Centre at 54 Strathalbyn Road, Aldgate, 5154.
From City:
Take the Stirling freeway exit and continue through Stirling to Aldgate. Go straight through the roundabout, past the CFS Station on the left and The Village Well is on the right as you go up the hill. (See Google map at the bottom of this page)

We have a number of experts amongst our members who are more than willing to pass on advice for gardeners who are trying to grow a range of bulb species. These include not only Liliums, but many rare species not normally grown in Australia.

Please feel free to email us (use one of the "Contact" pages) with your questions (and suggestions).

Our speaker at our April meeting is Greg Malu.
Greg is located in Macclesfield where he produces Biochar.

He says…
"The extreme porosity of biochar makes it an ideal sponge, holding moisture within the soil until it is used by plants. The spaces also provide habitat for soil microbes, making them more resilient to drought and able to rebound more rapidly when conditions improve. For this reason I recommend leaving chunks as they come rather than crushing the lot to powder."
