If you’ve been to Adelaide, there’s a good chance you’ve spent some time beneath the trees of the Botanic Garden, or the Botanic Park which sits across from it.

Whether you were enjoying the cool shade of the gums and ferns of the Australian Forest, or the dappled shade on the sweeps of lawn in the Park, there’s no doubt that it’s the trees that make these places what they are and that helping them to thrive is critical to the success of these spaces.

Achieving this is not a walk in the park – so to speak. This is South Australia, after all…

Karen Smith, one of five Adelaide Botanic Garden curators explains why she added TerraCottem to the management program:

"I discovered TerraCottem about eight years ago. Prior to that, when we planted any new trees, they just sat there. So when I planted some as a test, from the same stock, with the only difference being the TerraCottem and saw the difference, it was unbelievable. I am the biggest promoter and now every tree is planted with it."
