Changes To Plant Purchase Payments

PR The Ministry of Agriculture and Lands,  Fisheries and Cooperatives informs the public that commencing December 1, 2023, payment for  the purchase of plants at the Ashenden Propagating Station must be made exclusively at the  government treasury and revenue offices closest to you. Consequently, the existing payment  system for the purchase of plants every Thursday at the Ashenden Propagation Station will cease  from December 1, 2023. 

Before proceeding to make a payment for the purchase of any plant, customers must first contact the propagation stations to confirm the availability of plants. Please be advised that payments  made without prior confirmation are non-refundable. 

The propagation stations can be reached at: 

Mirabeau – 440 7212 

Ashenden – 444 7216 and 443 1679 

Boulogne – 423 0759 

Maran – 437 0953 

Additionally, the public is advised that no Spice Plants will be available for sale with immediate  effect from the current stock as they will be reserved exclusively for farmers participating in the  National Spice Replanting Programme. However, the sale of all other plants will continue until  stocks are depleted.
