The awards recognise and honour excellence in business, products and services and acknowledge industry leaders as they strive to achieve best business practice within the nursery and garden community.
The family-owned business specialises in more than 600 varieties of indigenous flora from Grevillas and Banksias to Eucalyptus and Westringias. Owners incorporate harmonious philosophies into the business with a strong focus on sustainability and extending green life to the community.
The impressive display garden showcases some of the most stunning, hardy plants which are highly attractive to birds and other native fauna, providing a wonderful, picturesque environment that is truly enjoyable to shop in.

Time to plant

Scaevolas! Now is a great time to get them in the ground as they will flower all Spring and Summer. The image above is of the Scaevola Purple Fanfare, an oldie but a goldie. Works well in pots or hanging baskets or as a colourful filler in the garden. Water well through Summer.
