May 04, 2020 Update | We are now back to our regular autumn trading hours of 10am to 3pm – seven days a week – as the nursery falls into the ‘essential services’ category under current classifications. In line with current distancing and hygiene directives we have implemented some new operating procedures in the nursery.

1. No entry until invited in. We have signage and a rope across the gate.
2. Only two visitors at a time in the nursery. Only one plus staff in the shop at any one time.
3. We are cleaning counter and other equipment after each sale.
4. We are hand cleaning after each transaction.
5. We are strictly observing 1.5m personal spacing in the nursery at all times.
We are also now offering phone ordering and delivery between Bermagui and Kianga if you’d prefer to order your plants without leaving home.

PHONE ORDERING / DELIVERY | To order plants or gardening products for delivery (between Kianga and Bermagui) ring us on 44 737 196 between 10am and 3pm to pay by credit card. Your order will then be put together and scheduled for delivery. Ring us for more details. Keith.
