8th of December: Happy festive season!

What a fantastic spring of mild temperature and late rain! The garden is thriving in these conditions, and it gives our plants a better chance of survival going into summer. As we head into some warmer weather it is time to do a waterwise garden check. Make sure your reticulation system is working optimally, mulch your garden, use a soil wetter if needed and avoid overfertilising (lots of food makes a plant thirsty!). That way your plants will have the best chance to grow and thrive into summer.
It is exciting to get closer to Christmas and we look forward to sharing this time with friends and family. One of the best places to share this time is on the patio. Patio gardens are a fantastic way to brighten this common space, and there are plenty of options to choose from with Australian native plants.
We wish you a safe and joyful festive season, with plenty of time with friends and family... and of course gardening too. Ross, Jackie, Alec and the team at Zanthorrea.

Wishing you a safe and joyful Christmas!
We have some special Grevilleas bred by Kings Park that are now out for sale: Grevillea 'Pink Profusion' (Left), Grevillea 'Kimberley Moon' (Middle), Grevillea 'Outback Sunrise' (Right), Grevillea 'Scarlet Moon' and Grevillea 'Showtime'. Give us a call if you would like one put aside. Stock is limited.

10th of October: Spring Wildflower Time

What a wonderful season of wildflowers this spring. A trip to Kings Park Botanic Gardens is rewarded with inspiration and entices the enthusiast to venture out to explore wildflower country. Many of the wildflowers you find can also be grown at home, and we have some terrific plants growing on in our production area that will be ready soon.

Also in stock is the Wollemi Pine, one of the genetically oldest plants around today. It existed back when the dinasaurs were around! We find these trees make a stunning feature in a nice pot, in a protected position. Trees can have male and female cones.

3rd of September: Spring is Here!

Spring is here and it is going to be an excellent season of wildflowers. We have had some very welcome additional rain to the start of spring, as winter was below average. At Zanthorrea our display gardens are looking fantastic and we have plenty of nice plants becoming available in the next month or so.

Happy spring gardening!

Kangaroo Paws are looking fantastic at this time of year!

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.

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

Talks at Zanthorrea: As we still have to keep to the 1.5m distancing rule. Numbers are limited to 30.
