4th of July. Wonderful Winter Rains!
I love the winter rains, pitter patering on the roof, filling the rain tanks and bringing new life to the garden. It is a very green time of year (yes the weeds too), and an enjoyable time to be out in the garden. There are also many native plants that choose to flower in winter, so if you are looking for a bit of colour there is plenty to excite like the Chorizema cordatum. This year we have two different colours to choose from: Bright orange and pastel yellow.
You will also notice many new plants in the nursery gardens as Graeme chooses winter to do the majority of planting. This way the winter rains can water them in and get the plants well established before summer.
Chorizema cordatum "Pastel Pea'
We have some great quality stock coming available this autumn.
15th of April: The gardening season is here.
Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, with a cheerful buzz and the anticipation of new rain. It is a great time to get out into the garden. One of my autumn jobs is to see what plants need pruning back, and on occasion removing. This will make way for new plantings. It is also a good time to fertilise any winter flowering native plants like the spidernet grevilleas and correas. In fact it is said to be the best time to fertilise the whole garden.
We had a terrific Garden Releaf Day on March 24th, and together we raised over $2500 for Beyond Blue. Thanks everyone for their support.
We hope you have a great autumn and get lots of 'Green Minutes'.
25th of February. Autumn is on the way!
Next week is the start of Autumn and the start of a great gardening season. While the weather and soil is still warm, the garden puts on lots of new growth. Be careful to keep an eye on the watering though as March can still be very hot and dry.
On the 24th of March we are having our Garden Releaf Day, so if you are free to join us it looks like it will be a lot of fun for the whole family. On this day we celebrate all that gardens do for us, including filtering the air we breath and the effect is has on our wellbeing. Money raised is donated to beyondblue.
Wishing you all a happy gardening season.

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!
Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
day except closed on Christmas Day.

Time to Plant!
It is a great time to plant Kangaroo Paws. Early spring planting will reward with many colourful flowers into late spring and Christmas. Have a look at the Anigozanthos Bush Fling (as pictured) for a short large flowered form.
