18th of December: Merry Christmas!

What wonderful rain we are getting today to freshen up the garden for Christmas celebrations! The plants are truly thankful of the water, and it will really help how they survive the summer heat. If you are planning to doing some gardening this summer, remember to water regularly, check the retic system for faults and apply soil wetter.

We have a big range of pots at the moment, and have seen an increase in people creating a patio pot garden to spruce up the backyard. If you are looking for ideas feel free to pop in for a chat.

Merry Christmas, and have a safe and enjoyable New Year.

23rd of October. Into the spring garden!

Spring is now in full bloom, so it is a great time to get out into the garden and enjoy all the plants, flowers and wildlife. Our photo competition is getting many stunning entries, so well worth a look on our facebook site. If you want to join this competition there is still one week to do so.

One of the showiest displays at this time of year is the mass plantings of Kangaroo Paws. They come in a variety of sizes and colours and if watered can stay flowering and looking fantastic into summer.

18th of September: Enjoy your spring gardening!

After a very wet end to winter it is enjoyable to have some warm sunny days for some gardening. The plants are absolutely thriving and putting on a show of colour. There are so many nice plants to choose from at this time of year, but if you want the biggest splash of colour, then look to the Kangaroo paws. They can be planted in mixes of colours, or as a big splash of one colour. Spring is also the time to get your camera out and take some beautiful pictures of Australian wildflowers. If you are looking to improve your photography skills then please come along to one of our two tutorials run by Erinna Ford, a local professional photographer. Also keep an eye out for our Australian Wildflower Photo Competition that will be running for the month of October.
We hope you have a fantastic spring in the garden!
