30th March: Rain Rain, please come back!

We had a very enjoyable Garden Releaf Day on the 19th of March and raised a total of $771 for the Mito Foundation. A highlight for me was the talk by Eric McCrum on birds in the garden. He encouraged providing a source of water for them and planting a variety of plants that flower through out the year to help provide a source of food for them. Looking to create a bird attracting garden, pop in for a chat and we can help you choose suitable plants.

Now we are in autumn it is the perfect time to plant, but be careful as it can still be very dry out in the garden and may need additional water until we get a more regular rainfall. Happy gardening.

Eric McCrum came to talk to us about the birds in the garden at our Garden Releaf Day.

3rd of March: Autumn is here!

Autumn is here and we are excited!

It has been a long dry summer, and we are glad for the reprieve. Already we have had a couple of millimeters of rain and it is starting to feel fresh. March though can still have some hot weather, so we recommend keeping up the watering on any new plants, check if the water is penetrating and apply a soil wetter if necessary to make the most of the autumn rain.

There are lots of fresh plants coming in every week, so if you are looking for a particular plant, give us a call and we can check for you.

23rd December: Merry Christmas!

Although we have had a few warm days recently, it looks like Christmas this year will be the perfect weather to enjoy being outside in the backyard. We would like to thank all our customers for supporting us through out 2022, and wish everyone a joyful Christmas and a safe start into 2023.

In the garden, now is the time to keep an eye on watering and waterwise gardening practices. Check for water repellant soils and add a soil wetter. Mulch to keep in soil moisture and also to cool the soil. Add temporary shade to new plantings that may be struggling. Summer can be a challenging time for the garden, but it can also be a rewarding time of summer veggies and summer flowering Australian plants.

Stay cool, and happy summer gardening!

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.
