About 8,500 native plants were given to landholders affected by the 2015 Pinery bushfire at the latest landscape recovery plant giveaway.

Natural Resources Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges district manager Chris Madigan said about 120 landholders attended the lastest event, at Barossa Bushgardens at Nuriootpa on May 5.

More than 50,000 plants have now been provided to help beautify home gardens and repair farming land by adding windbreaks, shelter belts and paddock trees.

They receive a mix of trees and shrubs suited to their landscape, including Eucalyptus, Native pine, Drooping sheoak, Native apricot, Acacia, Melaleuca and Salt bush.
