Our next Monday Mornings in the Reserves outing will be Monday August 24th in Cherry Tree Reserve along the Mullum Mullum Creek in Croydon. We will meet at 9am at the end of Strathfield Parade (Melways 50 E 1) and continue with some infill planting and weeding of the site. Tools and morning tea will be provided – please bring your own gloves.
It is rewarding to see the first flushes of spring flowers around the nursery as the Acacias and early pea flowers begin to show their colours. We are well stocked in the sales area and now is a great time to fill gaps in your garden. Check our opening times below and note that all purchases are cash only unless by prior arrangement.
