Pimelea ferruginea

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.

The beautiful flowers of Hardenbergia comptoniana

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!

Opening Hours:
Every day except closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
