Keith, do you have any apple trees left?

Mangaves are impressive new hybrid succulents (Manfreda x Agave) which feature broad spear-shaped leaves that grow in striking large rosettes. The white spines on the leaves are much more soft to the touch than Agaves and exposure to sunlight will enhance the attractive dark spotting patterns on the foliage. Mangaves tend to grow muh faster than Agaves and can be used as potted feature plants or mass planted in beds or borders. We currently have two forms - Pineapple Express and Inkblot - in stock with slightly different foliage and colouration. Keith. #inthenursery #succulents

Leucadendrons are South African plants closely related to Proteas and Australian natives like Waratahs, Grevilleas and Banksias. Leucadendrons come in a wide range of forms and colours and are popular for both their flowering and highly ornamental foliage. Flowers tend to be fairly small (at least compared to some of the showier Proteas) but are surrounded by large colourful bracts - which are actually modified leaves. The combination of the bracts and flowers produces showy cones - ideal for picking as cut flowers. We have range of Leucadendrons in stock at the moment including Purple Haze, Fire Glow, Red Gem and Royal Ruby. Keith #inthenursery #proteas #leucadendrons

In the nursery | Prunus mume (Japanese Flowering Apricot) is a beautiful deciduous tree which is generally one of the first blossom trees to flower - as early as mid-winter in some conditions. We currently have several Prunus mume weeping standards in stock - and these are already starting to display their delicate pink flowers in the nursery. These standards are a great option for a graceful, weeping feature in any garden. Keith #inthenursery #blossom

I have two of these beautiful trees in my garden which is at 1050 absl. They were planted by a previous owner. 10 years on, we still get a rush of joy when they begin to flower.

Grevilleas are a great option for attracting honey eating birds to the garden in winter. Our resident Eastern Spinebill is loving the Lady O, Robyn Gordon and Outback Sunrise varieties currently flowering in the nursery. We also have a range of other grevilleas in bud or flowering if you are looking for some instant native colour and nectar in your garden. Keith. #inthenursery #grevilleas #nativeplants

Our grevilleas are used by all sizes of honey eaters, lorikeets, insects & look pretty too. They are indeed a great addition to any garden.

What beautiful images. Lovely. Howard.

Beautiful birds...I have them in my garden as well..

We have many gorgeous Eastern Spinebills out at Wallagoot

Your little bird is so so friendly

Banksia integrifolia (Coast banksia) is a hardy local native which features bright yellow flowers in autumn and winter and is particularly well suited to coast plantings with sandy soils and high exposure to salt and wind. While the typical plant grows into a small tree and is a bit large for many gardens the prostrate Roller Coaster form is very versatile and can be used as a cascading ground cover on banks, in rockeries or borders. It has also been grafted onto tall standards to create stunning weeping features. We currently have the ground cover form and several tall standards in stock.

Stunning colour!

My all time favourite ❤️

In the nursery | the beautiful Grevillea leptobotrys Lilac Tangles is a low-mounding WA grevillea which features delicate sprays of uniquely shaped lilac/pink flowers that fade to lighter pink as they age. Lilac Tangles also features blue/grey foliage and attractive reddish/brown new growth - making it an outstanding rockery feature. Grafted plants are hardy in local conditions and naturally develop into neat, compact mounds with minimal pruning. Regarded by many native plant enthusiasts as one of the most outstanding garden grevilleas currently available. Keith. #inthenursery #natives #grevilleas
