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).
In case you need to contact us with "Snailmail", use this address…

Our Guest speakers at our March 4th meeting are Merri and Manfred Eckert speaking on Gardening after the Sampson Flat fire

They have been keen gardeners for most of their married life but even more so since they moved up into the lovely Adelaide Hills just outside Gumeracha in 2008. In 12 years they have extended the garden to approximately 2 acres.
In January 2015 the Sampson Flat fire destroyed 80% of their garden and some of the building infrastructure. Their home and sheds were untouched. Although the fire damage was devastating at the time, they took the opportunity to redo and redesign large sections of the garden.

The most commonly asked question is ‘what style of garden do you have’?  They reply - “Our garden is a garden within a garden, with many rooms.” 
Their love for the beauty and diversity that abounds in the plant world could not possibly be contained in any one style of garden, hence the 'rooms’ give scope to be creative in what is planted.
The many ‘rooms’ range from Fernery,  Relaxed Formal, Tropical Look, Vegie Patch and Fruit Tree enclosure to name a few.

Merri and Manfred are opening their garden on the 28th and 29th of March through Open Gardens SA to raise money for those affected by the recent bushfires and give hope to those currently going through the process of recovery.
