Winter brings with it cold wet rainy days, but also some fantastic colours to the garden! We have new plants becoming available every week, so I am sure there is something new to excite.

4th of June: Welcoming some winter rain!

The winter rains bring so much life into our gardens. Filling the creeks, streams and replenishing the ground water.

In the vege garden we have a change of season. The tomatoes, chilli and basil are finishing up, and now is the time to plant peas, root crops and leafy greens.

This saturday the 5th of June is World Environment Day, and it is good to reflect on the importance of a healthy environment, and what we can do to help. Unsure what you can do? A great way to help the local environment is to plant a tree! https://www.worldenvironmentday.global/

21st of May: Blooming Autumn!

Rains are forcast tomorrow, and they will be most welcome! The gardens are all starting to come to life, with grevilleas and correas looking terrific.

If you are looking to plant out some red and green kangaroo paws this year, it is good to get them in early so they flower nicely. We have punnets of 6 seedlings, which is the most economic way to purchase them. Watch out for snails and slugs though who like to eat them at night!

Happy autumn gardening!

19th of April: Autumn is the time to plant.

Autumn is one of the best times to plant, as there is still some warmth in the soil, and the prospect of rain is on the horizon. Even though we get lovely rain in autumn, it is important to check the soil for dryness, as some areas may have become unwettable in the breaks between rain. At the time of planting we recommend some soil wetter and seasol to improve the success rate.

We have some fantastic plants in stock at the moment, like this Melaleuca violacea prostrate (pictured to the right). Commonly referred to as a claw flower for it's unique pink flowers, this melaleuca will grow very low to the ground. We also find this is one of the favourite native plants to turn into a bonsai specimen!

16th of March: Hello Autumn!

This is a fantastic time of year for the garden. We get welcome rains to fill our tanks and water our plants. There seems to be something special about rain water, as the plants respond with lush new growth! A perfect time to garden.
At Zanthorrea we have been busy growing and propagating over the warm summer months, and I am pleased to say we have some excellent plants coming through in production. Grevilleas in particular are looking great, and we have a large selection available.
Happy Gardening!
