Guided Visit to Growing Friends' Nursery CANCELLED

This guided visit has been cancelled due to a forecast for Friday of 36 degrees Celsius. For more information please go to our Weather Policy under the About Us tab


Our summer nursery visit will be the opportunity to add highlights to your Christmas garden, and to find perfect Christmas gifts. The nursery currently holds a wide selection of suitable plants for home gardens. 

This visit is especially suitable for new members and for others who are not familiar with the whereabouts and workings of our Growing Friends’ Nursery. We will meet for a brief morning tea at Gate Lodge and then be guided down to the nursery for an introductory talk and to make purchases. 

Please bring carry bags suitable for carrying your purchases, and if you are travelling by public transport (or by car) or plan to buy a number of plants, think about bringing your shopping trolley to help carry your treasures.
