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.

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.
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!
4th of February: Surviving the Heat!
As we head into the last month of summer, we wonder if there is any rain coming our way to give our gardens needed respite to the heat and summer winds. It appears this year may break a few records. With this in mind there is a focus on waterwise gardens and choosing plants that can survive drought. One such genus is the desert loving Eremophilas. Once established they can survive on very minimal water, and their flowers are great for the little nectar feeding birds.
Summer is a great time to plan for the planting season. If you are looking for some ideas, pop in for a chat.

6th of January: Happy New Year!
It has been a very warm start into the new year, and we hope everyone is coping with the heat. It can be a tough time for flora and fauna too. Early morning is a good time to give a little extra water to the garden, and leave a saucer of water out for the birds and small animals to have a drink from. Yesterday we were visited by some very large and noisy birds. The Red Tail Black Cockatoos. It is a real pleasure to see them enjoying the seeds of the Marri trees, just watch out for the falling Honky Nuts!
Stay cool, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
day except closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

Correas are a fantastic addition to the garden. Pictured is the Correa Dusky Bells, an oldy but a goldy. Perfect for a dappled shade position, or morning sun. Pink tubular flowers for the birds to enjoy.
