FREE shipping for Fruit Salad Trees!

The Melbourne Flower Show 2020 is cancelled, so we’ll deliver your next order direct to your door, FREE! Hurry, one week only from 25th – 31st March, 2020.

Fruit Salad Trees are unique and grow different fruits, all on the ONE tree producing a much longer harvesting time. Everyone will enjoy different fruits from the same tree! They are the perfect size for planting in the ground and pots.

You may be spending a little more time at home and would LOVE being in your garden around some fruit trees that clean and green the air.

Use promocode: NOSHOW which enables you to receive FREE shipping on your next order! Limit of one use per customer. Plus, you’ll then have the option to sign up to receive regular tree care reminders and tips from our nursery team.


The Show Must Go On!

Despite the show being cancelled The Diggers Club’s dedicated events team made the decision to build their display garden remotely to share with disappointed ticket holders. The garden features the Diggers Mini Plot vegetable garden packed with the very best heirloom varieties and a stunning ornamental perennial display as well as their legendary pumpkins.  During the five days the show would have run (Wednesday 25 March – Sunday 29 March), The Diggers Club are sharing elements of their garden, inspiration and tips and tricks from edible and ornamental experts on their website,  Instagram and Facebook. Follow to join the conversation.


Gardening is not cancelled.

Your local Independent Garden Centres are still able to trade.  They are doing all they can to remain open and with plenty of great stock, now is the time to “Discover your own Backyard”.

To ensure safety for both staff and customers many have been thinking outside the square with some great initiatives. Kerb side pick-ups, home delivery, contactless advice (instore, online or by phone) are just some of the ways Independent Garden Centres continue to provide the service they are known and loved for.
 
2020 has been one of the toughest years in our history and it’s heartening to know that when it gets tough, we can all work together and support one another.  Plants and Gardens are Proven Therapy for Body and Mind so now more than ever it’s time to Discover your own Back yard.
 
Please stay healthy and support local businesses and enjoy your garden.

London College of Garden Design wants you to Embrace Your Garden

LCGD recently ran a competition with the winners due to be creating their planting design exhibits this week at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. At LCGD, we are committed to supporting new designer talent through planting design both in Australia and the UK and so the competition hasn’t been cancelled, it’s just been taken online with our new International Garden Show. Over the next few weeks we hope to share these creations being made by designers in their own gardens and backyards.

You can also get involved!

If you can safely get out into an open space and create a new planting design, whether it’s your own garden or a community space we want to hear from you. Even if you can’t get outside we want to see what you have designed on paper. There’s even a photography category.
