Open Sunday.. more plant stock ready for sale..

Hey everybody,
I have been away for a couple of weeks and Johnny has the nursery looking great. Things have grown and we have lots more showy local species in 125mm tubes ready for sale this Sunday. Both trees and shrubs and groundcovers.

The rain is wonderful which means our soil biology is wide awake ready to help seedlings establish. This is the best time of the year to plant, especially as the soil is still relatively warm. This means fast healthy growth.

We are open 9am - 3pm Sunday and by appointment during the week.

PS. For those waiting, we also have another batch of Tennis Ball Pink Passionfruit available.

Tennis Ball Pink Passionfruit Vines - Back in stock tomorrow Sunday.
This is my favourite passionfruit variety. Delicious extra large fruit, fast, easy to grow, highly productive vines. THE BEST..
Try growing these along a fence line rather than overhead, this will protect them from the superhot days in summer.
Great variety for the Geraldton region.
Please bring your own box as we are running short.

Open Sunday 9.00am-3.00pm and by appointment during the week.
