March 30 Update | Desiree and I have made the decision to close the nursery to customers util further notice. This decision hasn’t been easy for us but for our health, and the health of others, we think is the right way to go. However, we are looking to maintain the supply of plants and gardening products to the general public with sale over the phone and pickup at an arranged time from the nursery.

PHONE ORDERING & PICKUP | To order a plant or product customers can contact the nursery by phone on 44 737 196 between 10am and 2pm to discuss the order and pay by credit card. There will be a minimum order for credit card payments. The order will then be put together and, at an agreed time, we will have the order ready for collection at the nursery gates. Ring us for more details. Keith.

The nursery stocks a unique range of quality plants for all gardens. Each season sees a new range of colours and inspirations in the nursery and Keith ans Desiree posess the horticultural expertise to make sure the right plant finds the right place in the right garden. Tilba Nursery is particularly renowned for its range of cottage and perennial plants – including many rare and seldom grown varieties. This range of quality of plants, sourced from the best specialist growers, sees cottage garden enthusiasts from all parts of NSW (and even interstate) regularly visiting to track down plants simply not available anywhere else.

A quick update - we are open across the weekend - 10am to 3pm. Potting mix is back in stock but we currently have only a handful of veggie seeds and seedlings left (more on order / on the way!) We do still have a good range of herbs in stock plus lots of flower seedlings.  We also have a good selection of fruit trees including apples, pears, plums, blueberries and pomegranates. 

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 observing the 1.5m spacing in the nursery with those who are in the facility.

A big thanks to everyone who has already been in this week for their patience and understanding of these new arrangements :)

We are currently looking at offering a home delivery service in the near future. We will post some more details shortly. Thanks! Keith #news
