What's new!

We are now able to take card payments over the phone. Ring Maria on 02 6775 1139.
More and more customers are taking advantage of this convenient service.

Spring is here at last and what a spring we are having. The drought is well and truly over and we can look forward to one of the best seasons we've had for years. This is a good opportunity to plant up all those gaps in the garden and get them established before the next dry spell. This is also the time to spread fertiliser.
I use Dynamic Lifter around most of my plants and find it is quite OK for most native plants.
Around Waratahs and Banksias I prefer to use Blood and Bone Plus. It has added potash and sulphur.
Do not use Blood and Bone Professional (it has too much Phosphorus and may harm these sensitive plants.

Don't forget my courier service for customers in NSW and the ACT! It's a real bargain compared with postal charges.
A box of 12 plants (140mm size) anywhere in NSW or ACT for only $22.00 freight (+ box $3.00) delivered in 1-2 days.
The box can be made up with all tubes (40) or a mix of tubes and 140mm plants.
Larger orders for NSW are more economical to be sent by courier. See the ordering page for details.

All interstate orders (Qld, Vic, SA) are posted regardless of quantity or mix of plants. It is best to order tubes.

This nursery has a very low carbon footprint. We use our own water and no greenhouse heating.               
Organic fertilisers are used in production and waste water flows to nearby gardens. 
We encourage sustainability and an appreciation for our native flora
