18th of December: Merry Christmas!

What wonderful rain we are getting today to freshen up the garden for Christmas celebrations! The plants are truly thankful of the water, and it will really help how they survive the summer heat. If you are planning to doing some gardening this summer, remember to water regularly, check the retic system for faults and apply soil wetter.

We have a big range of pots at the moment, and have seen an increase in people creating a patio pot garden to spruce up the backyard. If you are looking for ideas feel free to pop in for a chat.

Merry Christmas, and have a safe and enjoyable New Year.

Anigozanthos Bush Pearl is a long flowering short Kangaroo Paw that has been in the market for a long time, and is still one of our favourites!

23rd of October. Into the spring garden!

Spring is now in full bloom, so it is a great time to get out into the garden and enjoy all the plants, flowers and wildlife. Our photo competition is getting many stunning entries, so well worth a look on our facebook site. If you want to join this competition there is still one week to do so.

One of the showiest displays at this time of year is the mass plantings of Kangaroo Paws. They come in a variety of sizes and colours and if watered can stay flowering and looking fantastic into summer.

18th of September: Enjoy your spring gardening!

After a very wet end to winter it is enjoyable to have some warm sunny days for some gardening. The plants are absolutely thriving and putting on a show of colour. There are so many nice plants to choose from at this time of year, but if you want the biggest splash of colour, then look to the Kangaroo paws. They can be planted in mixes of colours, or as a big splash of one colour. Spring is also the time to get your camera out and take some beautiful pictures of Australian wildflowers. If you are looking to improve your photography skills then please come along to one of our two tutorials run by Erinna Ford, a local professional photographer. Also keep an eye out for our Australian Wildflower Photo Competition that will be running for the month of October.
We hope you have a fantastic spring in the garden!

We have plenty of good options to choose from including the desert loving Eremophilas and hardy Grevilleas. Feel free to pop in and have a chat.

1st of June: Welcome to Winter

Winter is here, and with it the forcast of rains to help our gardens grow! For those of you who have not yet got your everlastings in, we recommend planting them before August, to give them time to grow up before flowering. Our baby everlastings have started growing on the roundabout, so should make a fantastic show come spring. There's many plants that do their best flowering in the wet months of winter, so pop in and have a look at our display gardens for inspiration. Of particular note is the Grevillea 'Juniper Rose', which we have a fantastic batch of health plants growing on in 140mm pots.

3rd of March: A hot start into Autumn.

Autumn is here and with it the start of the gardening season and the best time to plant. Though there is still the chance of some very hot days in March where plants may need some extra care with watering. Once the heat eases off, it is also a great time to do any pruning in the garden. Callistemons, Baeckeas and most Grevilleas can all have hard prune if required.

Zanthorrea is pleased to say that we have been re-endorsed as a Waterwise Garden Centre. So if you are looking for waterwise advise or plants that are drought tolerant, you know where to come. Free catch cups are currently available at the nursery to help you test your reticulation system, as supplied by the Water Corporation.

We are very excited to host a Garden Releaf Family Day on March 19, so if you are able to join us for the inspiring talks and tasty home baked cakes, it is sure to be a fun day. We hope to see you there.

Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
Every day except closed on Christmas Day.
