Zanthorrea Nursery is a family-owned garden centre, located in the
hills of Perth, Western Australia.
The tranquil surroundings of Zanthorrea Nursery's hills garden centre
make choosing plants a pleasure. Whether you are wandering around the
display gardens or enjoying a picnic while the children discover the
playground, the emphasis at Zanthorrea is on relaxation.
At Zanthorrea we specialise in Australian natives, which are among
the world's most lovely and hardy plants. Visit our award winning nursery and choose from over
600 varieties of Australian plants. Zanthorrea is an accredited nursery,
so our plants are guaranteed to be clean, healthy and 'hardened off'
before you take them home.
17th of July: We are open for business.
We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation, and following guidlines to keep our customers and staff safe. Our children's playground is open again, but for the moment we are still keeping our self serve coffee corner closed. Thanks for your understanding. We also ask that all customers exercise the 1.5m social distancing. At Zanthorrea we have a large area of open space to shop from, so there is plenty of room for all.
While our garden centre has plenty of room, our car park can get a little busy. There is also a gravel carpark with a separate enterance, and some space along the Watsonia Road verge. Thank you for being safe and patient while the carpark is busy.
Our Atrium getting ready for the re-roofing on Monday the 3rd of August.
31st of July: Atrium Re-roof
Our lovely atrium is getting a new roof from Monday 3rd of August, so if you pop in over the weekend you may notice it a little bit empty in there!! We will also use this opportunity to freshen up this space once all the work is complete.
A thanks in advance for your patience with the disruption this may cause next week. The atrium will be closed to the public from Monday the 3rd to Wednesday the 5th of August.
For the mean time, many of our indoor plants, including the Wollemi Pines have been placed in our Shady plants bay.
10th of July:Winter in Perth
Winter in Perth has some excellent weather, if a little chilly in the mornings. We particularly like winter as many Australian native plants show us some superb flowers. Have a look for bird attracting Grevilleas and Banksias this winter.
If you haven't done so already, now is a great time to plant out Everlasting Dasies. The best way is to mix a 10g seed pack with a 25L bag of Soil Improver in a wheelbarrow and spread on weed free soil. Watch out for snails and slugs though as they like to eat the baby seedlings. A dose of Seasol once a month will help the plants with strong healthy flowers. These flowers are perfect for cut flower arrangements and can also be dried.
Stylidium Pink-A-Saurus- a new one to Zanthorrea.
A new grevillea to Zanthorrea: Grevillea Raspberry Dream. Bred by Kings Park.
19th of March: Hope everyone is safe and in the garden.
It is an unprecedented time of uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 virus. We hope you find some peace in your gardens and backyards as we get through these troubling times.
We are monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and following advice. Extra cleaning measures have been taken, and we believe our garden centre with its open air and plenty of space is still a low risk place to visit.
Our business like many others will remain open while the advisory bodies deem it safe to do so. We believe gardening has an important place to help relieve anxiety, and improve our health.
Please note: Due to the uncertainty, any future events have been postponed.
2nd of March: A Beautiful Start to Autumn
We have some fantastic weather to start off the autumn season. After all the storms last week there is some moisture once again in the soil, the sun is shining, and it is a perfect time to get out into the garden. March can still be a hot month though so it is important to keep an eye on the watering until we get into April.
Save the Date: On the 22nd of March we are hosting a Garden Releaf Day, and we hope you can make it. It is a fun day of talks, music, food and all for a good cause to raise money for Beyond Blue. More details to come soon.
Grevillea 'Outback Sunrise' is one of the new Grevilleas we have now at Zanthorrea.
Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
day except closed on Christmas Day.
What's Looking Good!
The Fan flowers are a great plant to grow through the warm summer months as they put on a terrific show of flowers. Either in hanging baskets, pots, or a well watered garden bed. Try: Scaevola Sitting Pretty, Scaevola Crinkle Cut or Scaevola Purple Fanfare.
