In an undercover area Doug Coxall lovingly refers to as his “greenery”, the nonagenarian shows off the numerous plants getting ready to bloom which have helped him raise $416 for the Albany Hospice. At the age of 92, Mr Coxall still wants to help the community in any way he can. Since starting in January, Mr Coxall has been potting away in his home shed to raise funds for the hospice and Ronald McDonald House. Rivalling Bunnings’ garden section, Mr Coxall’s collection has taken over every spare corner of his greenery and backyard with some 3000 plants. “All this cover, it means I can pot in rain, hail or shine,” said Mr Coxall. Soil is donated by Soil Solutions and pots are donated by the community, while neighbours invite Mr Coxall around for cuttings. The idea to raise funds for the hospice comes from his time as a volunteer visiting those who would otherwise receive no visitors. “It broke my heart seeing the residents so lonely, and I had to stop visiting after a while because it became too much for me,” he said. “I really liked helping them out, and it made me happy to see the residents so happy.” Mr Coxall sells his pot plants via Facebook Marketplace and has been invited to have his plants sold at the Albany Open Garden Day in November to raise more money for the Albany Hospice and Ronald McDonald House.
