We are open tomorrow, Sunday 9.00am-3.00pm and every Sunday until we sell out.

Hello everyone,
We will be open tomorrow, 9.00am -3.00am. Sunday.
Every year I grow a speciality tree, this year I have opted for the Kurrajongs. In fact, two types. The Desert Kurrajong, is our famous desert species which jumps out of the landscape mid summer with it tropical bright lime green growth amongst the dry dusty desert environment. It is a typical lollipop shape offering perfect shade. Its root is a large swollen tuber which stores water for use during dry times. It is an extremely long lived, fire retardant beautiful species . The picture is one I planted on our road verge years ago.
The other is a wider leaf variety from the breakaway country in Port Hedland know as the Rock Kurrajong. They tend to go deciduous in winter in Geraldton unless grown in a warm microclimate. There leaves are much wider than the desert kurrajong, shiny green and lush. Again they have a water storing tuber for the dry times.
These are available in two litre bags for $27.50.
We also have more tubestock available of other species.
Please bring you own box as we are short of small boxes this week.
