Coastal wildflowers, who said they were boring?
Last year our Cockie's Tongues put on a spectacular show.
These grow wonderfully on the alkaline sands up and down the WA coast so if you think you have got boring beach sands to grow in, think about brightening them up with these local native fellas. Ask about the rare yellow flowering form we have in stock this year.

Nursery Open Hours
Thursday to Monday, 10.00am-5.00pm.

Lets get planting...

Wondering when to plant? The easiest time of the year to plant native trees and shrubs in the Geraldton region is now. The temperatures are cool but not too cool and the ground is finally wetting up. Have you ever noticed how things seem to grow so much better with the winter rains, this is partly due to the good native soil organisms becoming active and helping plants grow.
ORGANIC PLANTING TIP OF THE DAY.
Ever had your seedlings ring-barked by black beetles when using mulch? If so, simply pull the mulch back from the plant stems by 100mm. These black beetles don't seem to like venturing into the open.
Nursery open 5 days 10.00am - 5.00pm. Closed Tues and Wed.

Geraldton Native Rose, one of the wonderful Diplolaenas. This season's tubestock are ready for sale. Original, orange, awesome looking flowers. These grow wonderfully on most soils around the Midwest region, and do particularly well on the alkaline soils around Geraldton. This species is rapidly being cleared for housing developments on the south side of Geraldton. Now is your chance to become a conserver and grower of this unique local plant.

Nursery open 5 days 10.00am - 5.00pm. Closed Tues and Wed.

Hi Julie/Drylands Nursery.. can you please advise.. we are looking for native trees for a driveway. We would love fast growing, bird attracting trees with a canopy type outcome 😊 what do you think?

Hi Julie Drylands Permaculture Nursery, Is it likely you'll run out of stock of the native rose any time soon? I'm unable to drive at moment to collect.

These plants are so pretty. I have actually seen them down near Bellimos Drive about 20 yrs ago. Could they be grown in a pot on a verandah???

Hi are these plants non poisonous. And how much are they.

Roughly how big do these grow please? 😀

Hi Julie and co Will post on ur page and hopefully get some pointers 😊

Kerrie send dad out there on Thursday to get some????
