Geraldton's Coastal Garden Plant Specialists.

Hi Everyone:
Did you know that we have been operating in Geraldton for 30 years now and we still grow all our own stock here at Drylands Permaculture Nursery. While we have a big range of stock for all soil types, we specialise in local coastal native ground covers, shrubs and trees. We love the on-going challenge of finding new plants to grow that love alkaline sandy soils.

If you are not sure what to plant, we have a experienced team of specialist nursery people here to assist you to find the best species for your place, so let us help you get your Geraldton coastal garden 'rocking' with minimal effort.

Just remember winter is the easiest time to establish natives and we are also open every weekend 10am - 5pm, so come and visit as we have a our largest selection of species available now!

*Bacon and Egg* Sunday
Maybe not the best plant to eat for breakfast but...perfect for small gardens.

The Bacon and Egg Shrub is a hardy local native that is covered in red and yellow (bacon and egg) pea flowers during winter-spring.
Loves free-draining sandy soils (incl. alkaline sands) grows 1mx1m and its small prickles deter even the most careless of barefoot garden bed wanderers.
Tubestock $5.50ea.

Is it poisonous to livestock?

Perfect weekend to get your native plants in the ground.. rain coming Monday to water them in.Live near the beach and having trouble getting your garden established? Try these plants...

~~Oakajee and Cape Burney Lace Flowers~~

Hiding in the Oakajee and Cape Burney sand dune systems are these wonderful forms of Thryptomene baeckeacea. They explode into a stunning spectacle of small pink Geraldton wax-like flowers throughout the winter-spring months.
The Oakajee form is short almost a groundcover. Try planting it in a rockery garden or cascading over a wall. The Cape Burney form is more upright with weepy foliage up to 1/2m tall. These hardy Lace Flowers look great planted on masse or as borders along pathways. They are a number one front line establishing coastal species which deserve a lot more attention throughout Geraldton's sandy suburbs.

Tubestock $5.50ea.

Angela Teale need any pretty plants for house?

Paul Dee

Did you know that there are around 1200 species of Wattle in Australia. Some are long lived while others are short. Only a few types root sucker like our local black wattle Acacia rostilifera. Here is a wonderful species that is both highly ornamental and well behaved in a garden setting or windbreak system.~~~~Western Australia Day Long Weekend~~~~
Spoon Leaf Wattle *Yellow pompom flowers*

Acacia spathulifolia is a pretty yellow flowering non-suckering Acacia that occurs naturally in coastal limestone areas throughout Geraldton. With fleshy green leaves the yellow pompom flowers are loved by pollen feeding native bees. 2m x 2m it's a great compact short windbreak shrub or feature plant. We'd grow more around our farm except they are a favourite emu food, hence ours are beautifully topiaried inside large tree guards in the paddocks.
Tubestock $5.50ea.
