Come and join us for Garden Releaf Family Day, March 19

3rd of March: A hot start into Autumn.

Autumn is here and with it the start of the gardening season and the best time to plant. Though there is still the chance of some very hot days in March where plants may need some extra care with watering. Once the heat eases off, it is also a great time to do any pruning in the garden. Callistemons, Baeckeas and most Grevilleas can all have hard prune if required.

Zanthorrea is pleased to say that we have been re-endorsed as a Waterwise Garden Centre. So if you are looking for waterwise advise or plants that are drought tolerant, you know where to come. Free catch cups are currently available at the nursery to help you test your reticulation system, as supplied by the Water Corporation.

We are very excited to host a Garden Releaf Family Day on March 19, so if you are able to join us for the inspiring talks and tasty home baked cakes, it is sure to be a fun day. We hope to see you there.

2nd December: Summer is here and so is the festivities!

A warm welcome to the festive season of Summer. Christmas is just around the corner, and that means it is a great time to tidy up the backyard, plant some colour and look for tasteful gifts that family and friends will appreciate. We love jazzing up the nursery and hope you enjoy the fresh new displays.
If you're at home this school holidays, why not involve the kids in a gardening project. There are many activites they can do: Raised vege patches, pots or hanging baskets, native bonsais, and miniature fairy gardens.
We have some great talks lined up in January including Matthew Lunn and Lisa Passmore and we hope you are able to attend.
With the long days of summer, it is a fantastic time to enjoy the backyard with family and friends.

We hope you have an enjoyable Festive season, stay safe and see you again soon.
Ross, Jackie and the Team at Zanthorrea.

9th of June: Winter warmers

In between the winter rains is a great time to get out and warm up with some gardening. Many people wait till Winter to plant out tubestock for the best chance of success, and there is also a great range available at this time of year. It is the perfect time to get your leafy vegetables in, or maybe some climbing peas or radishes too.

If you are looking for flowers out in the winter garden you can expect to see many grevilleas, bottlebrush, lechenaultia, hypocalymma, chorizema and wax flowers out in bloom. Plenty to excite! Pop in for a chat or to have a look around our display gardens for ideas.
