Plants For The Season


Salvias are a poplular perennial to plant now for colour.
Other plans for striking colour are – salvias, hollyhocks, daisies, hellebores, clematis, hydtrangeas and many more we have in stock.
Preparing and planting your summer vegies is always a priority for Spring. Picking your own produce is satisfying, healthy and economical.

Tips and Traps


The Nurseryman welcomes tips and traps from customers. Please give them to him by emailing us and we will list them here

  • Look around your surrounding suburbs and towns when planning a new garden. Identify what grows well and bring your list to the Nurseryman to provide advice and source those plants.
  • Don’t over feed your compost worms in winter – they aren’t hungry!
  • Plant a variety of lettuce every 4 – 6 weeks and only pick the leaves for a textured and colourful lettuce salad. There are so many varieties now, that even in winter, you can have your own supply rather than buying a mix in bags from the supermarket.
  • Do you have slippery garden paths? Mix equal parts (say 1 cup) of methylated spirits and white vinegar to a bucket of soapy water in a spray bottle. Spray on small areas and scrub with a brush. Leave for a few minutes and rinse off with clean water.
