Alec and Ross at the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce Awards night. We were awarded with the Community Spirit Award!
3rd of December
Breaking News: Zanthorrea has been awarded the 'Community Spirit Award' from the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce! We are so thrilled to be presented this award, which recognises a commitment and a passion for helping out the community. We believe it is vital to support the community that has for so many years been supporting us.
Christmas is fast approaching and we are looking forward to this festive time of year. If you are planning on sprucing up the garden, pop in for a chat and we can recommend some colourful plants for the backyard. Through summer we get some strong winds, so it is also recommended pruning any large top heavy pot plants, or shrubs that have a tendancy to blow over like Albany Woolly Bush and the Wedding Bush.
13th of September: A wonderful flowering spring!
With a wetter than normal winter, we have been looking forward to the warmth of spring. Now it is here it is the perfect time to get out into the garden, pull a few weeds and get the back yard ready for the festive season. There is lots of colour to be had with Chorizemas, Anigozanthos and Lechenaultias all making a big show. We have some new release plants as well, including the Chamelaucium Tumbelina, which is a weeping form of C. uncinatum that is looking great. The first plants of this one will be ready for sale soon. If you missed out on growing the Everlasting Daisy from seed, why not try some of the Rottnest Island Daisy or the Swan River Daisy as they prefer to be seeded in spring.
All the best for your spring gardening!

26th June: Welcoming winter rains!
It has been a busy few weeks, with lovely sunny days mixed in with some welcome rain. The gardens are all looking fresh and the rains have started to bring out the flowers. Winter really is a magical time of year for the Australian Bush.
News Flash: Zanthorrea Native Potting Mix is now available in store! This has been something we have been working on for a while, and are pleased to present this product. It is just as we use in the production side of the nursery, only formulated with a lower fertiliser amount to be safe for all native plants. We think you will like the results!
Happy winter gardening!
25th May: A welcoming and refreshing rain
We are having some lovely rain here today, and it is very much needed in our bush. After rains like this the native bushland comes to life with many plants putting on a show of new growth and flowers. At the nursery all this warm weather has been great for growing plants, and we have lots of beauties to excite. Hakea Burrendong Beauty is one such plant that is just now coming into full flower. Pop in to have a look at our display plant near the Gazebo. We hope you enjoy the start to the wet months, and find gaps in the weather to get into the garden.
