5th of August: More Winter Rains and Storms!

It has been a stormy few days and it really does feel like winter. Aside from the damaging winds the storms can bring we love the winter rain filling the creeks and wetting the soil. We have new plants coming in every week and there are some beauties like this Mat Cottonhead conostylis now available. They are a spreading tufting local plant and a great addition to the garden.

The gardens look great this time of year, with many plants in flower. Native wisterias, yellow buttons, grevilleas, onesided bottlebrush and of course wattles are all putting on a show. We invite you to pop in for a wander through the gardens.

6th of July: Winter Flowers

Winter is the start of a beautiful flowering season, especially for the local Hardenbergia comptoniana (native wisteria). These hardy climbers like a good structure to climb up like a trellis or even just a post with wire. We now have a few colour options available from purple to mauve to pink. Have a look in our gardens for our 3m high 'Pink Star'.

Enjoy the cool winter flowers!

3rd of June: Winter is Here!

Winter is here, and what a fantastic time of year it is. The winter creeks start to flow and more and more native plants start to flower. One of the prominent winter flowering species for me is the hakeas. Hakea 'Burrendong Beauty' is one of the showiest ones and a fantastic addition to the garden. Very drought tolerant once established, suiting an outback garden style.

The long weekend is here with some clear weather and it is a great time to get planting. We have the nursery stocked up with lots of plants, and there is sure to be something to excite.

Happy Gardening!

29th of April: Perfect Weather for the Garden!

It is another beautiful day today with sunshine after some rain! We couldn't ask for better weather to be out in the garden. COVID restrictions have eased, and we welcome a return to some sort of normal. Masks are no longer required, but you may see some of our team wear them while in the shop, or out serving customers as an added precaution.

Out in the garden centre we have an abundance of nice plants ready for planting. One of my favourites is the pin cushion hakea. We have a mature plant in our display gardens that is worth a look. It first gets visited by honey eaters for their flowers and later in the year by the black cockatoos for the seeds. A fantastic addition to the WA garden.

Happy Gardening!

4th of April: Gardening Releaf!

What a fantastic time of year autumn is. Cooler days and the promise of rain makes for an excellent time to be out in the garden. We currently have a fantastic range of plants available including a large selection of hybrid Grevilleas. These grevilleas have been bred to provide longer flowering times and vibrate colours. We hope you enjoy the selection in store.

This year we have unfortunately had to postpone our Garden Releaf Day event. It is with great thanks to everyone who bought a raffle ticket for the Beyond Blue Hamper, together we have raised $381 for this worth charity.

Congratulations to P Steele who won the Beypond Blue Hamper, drawn today by B Wright. We hope you enjoy your prize!

2nd March: Happy Autumn Gardening!

Welcome to autumn, the time to plant! It has been a long hot summer and a trying time for the garden. After such a summer it highlights the importance of choosing waterwise and drought tolerant plants for your garden. We have many to choose from, including a wide selection of Grevilleas and Eremophilas.

While the start to autumn has been welcomed with cool weather and some rain, it is important to still keep an eye on watering on any hot days. Soil may have become hydrophobic and need a soil wetter applied, especially when planting new plants. Then your new additions to the garden can get the most out of the rain. Happy autumn gardening!
