Green thumbs won't want to miss this deal
THE Whistlestop Heritage and Community Garden has 50 brown fig trees for sale.
These are rooted suckers of an old-fashioned variety. The trees have been popular sellers at recent markets.
Fig trees are also available for sale at the community garden, along with a range of other flowering plants, trees and herbs.
Visit the community garden on Wednesday or Thursday mornings to find out more.
Thanks to Queensland Rail's donation of used wooden railway sleepers, a large area of the community garden has been extensively rejuvenated.
After replacing sleepers on the Granite Belt railway line recently, Queensland Rail donated numerous used sleepers to the garden.
Many have already been used to create new vegetable beds and build retaining walls for two new garden areas and there are plans to use of more sleepers in future projects.
Whistlestops has received requests from the public about these sleepers, but as these were a gift to the garden, they are not for sale.
