5th of September: Joy in the Spring Garden!

Spring is here and with it the garden comes to life with colour and activity. Many of our plants have been slow to grow over winter, but now the days are getting longer they are almost ready for sale. There will be plenty of new plants available each week!

One of our favourite flowers of spring is the Pimelea ferruginea. They are all budding up and about to look terrific. They like to grow in a sunny well drained position and can also be kept in a pot with a good quality native potting mix and adequate drainage. Available in both white and pink flowering forms.


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.

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!
