Collections At Tindale Garden

The garden has been abundantly planted with ornamental trees, bushes and plants since the 1950's. Most outstanding are the Camellia and Hydrangea collections, which held a prestigious GPCAA Certificate of Registration for the Hydrangea collection.

The GPCAA organization has been superceeded by the Plant Trust National Plant Collections Register in 2018.  See bottom of page for additional info.

Plant Trust National Plant Collections (PTNPC)

( formerly the Garden Plant Collection Association of Australia  (GPCAA))

Parks Victoria has yet to complete the migration from GPCAA to the PTNPC for the George Tindale Memorial Garden collections.  Efforts are underway, as of Feb2019, to rectify proper registration with the newer organization.

"Registered plant collections listed on the Plant Trust National Plant Collections Registerâ„¢ are held by home gardeners, botanic gardens, commercial nurseries, horticulturalists, plant collectors, garden societies, garden clubs and land managers."
