‘Alberys Red’ is an outstanding select form of the NSW Christmas Bush (Ceratopetalum gummiferum) with a compact form and bright red flowers. Currently in stock and flowering - a great option for some instant Christmas colour in the garden! Keith. #inthenursery #nativeplants #summer
Campanula 'Iridescent Bells' is an elegant perennial usually grown in lightly shaded gardens (but can also be grown in full sun with protection from hot afternoon sun and winds). The large lilac-silver bells open from clusters of purple buds throughout summer and autumn. Currently flowering in the nursery. Keith. #inthenursery #perennials #campanula #summer
A beautiful Hydrangea Bi-colour in the shop - just one of the colourful botanical gift options we currently have in stock.

Hybrid Clematis 'Piilu' flowering in the nursery - regarded as one of the better clematis for growing in a pot or container. Keith. #inthenursery #clematis #spring
Waratahs are starting to put on their colourful spring display in many local gardens - in particular the hybrid varieties developed by crossing the classic NSW waratah (Telopea speciosissima) with species from different areas to produce plants that are more adaptable to a range of conditions. Hybrids like ‘Corroboree’ (mongaensis x speciosissima) and 'Gembrook' (speciosissima x mongaensis) do particularly well in local conditions. So if you've had no luck growing the NSW waratah before then one of these hybrids may prove to be a hardier option in your exact conditions. We currently have a nice range of Waratah varieties in stock - drop in for a chat about which form might do well in your garden. Keith. #waratahs #nativeplants #news #inthenursery #spring

Apart from cottage plants and perennials the nursery also carries an extensive range of Australian natives (many unusual or rare), cacti and succulents, citrus, berries and unusual food plants, roses (old fashioned, modern and species), rare and interesting exotics – plus seasonal vegetable seedlings and herbs. We now also carry a range of indoor plants.
