Our favourite heirloom " big fruited" table grape is "Black Wortley Hall", it originated in York in the 1800’s and we are still growing it.

I love the vigour of the Black Wortley Hall. Great tasting big black fruit on a strong vine, they do really well in the Geraldton climate. When fruiting, we prune off one third of each bunch which increases the fruit size. It also allows air space between individual fruit which reduces mildews . The young leaves at this time of the year also make wonderful dolmades or stuffed grape vine leaves.

The nursery is open today 9-12 noon. Grape vines are available for $ 15.40 each.

Any thoughts on when you might be selling seeds to us Easterners again? I miss being able to buy your seeds 😞

What colour fruit is the Shatook king Mulberry please.

Sonya Reynolds white.

Hi Cass, not sure yet as we are still growing out seed after the extraordinary covid rush of sales last year. It is hard to get seed into wa and it is acclimatised locally hence the reason we are limiting sales. We will post when we reopen to interstate sales. Heres hoping you are saving some of your own seed.

Drylands Permaculture Nursery Thankyou
