The wife is a gardening enthusiast,so courtesy her digging sessions,we get some organic chilli,mint,lettuce etc. from the community garden where we have a membership. So,we went last week to a nursery near our home. It’s basically a nursery and a florist. We have been there before and I was really taken aback at the warm welcome we got. Sydney folks by and far(from my experiences) are not very welcoming people; I guess that’s a way of life now.People are too busy,but at least when you have a business,you should by default be nice.That’s what I feel! Anyway,going back to the nursery,the owners and staff are a nice and friendly bunch. You feel at home there instantly. While the wife looked around for her potting mixes and seeds,I roved around with my roving eye-my D7000. Too many pixels,but too good!
They have pretty much everything you will need for your gardening needs like seeds,mixes and other material supplies. They also have a beautiful flower shop within! I took many lovely pics after asking one of the lovely staff there for permission to shoot. She just requested not to shoot the staff,which was fair enough. But like the wife said,I just went trigger crazy and took a whole lot of pictures but I’m just posting a smattering of those! The place had some interesting sculptures and colourful pottery.Some of the flowers were gorgeous! I just enjoyed roving around. What makes it different from other nurseries is the attitude of the staff who let you roam around and are there if you need them. Very different!
If you live nearby or are ever in the vicinity,do drop in and check it out.It’s quite tranquil in there!!
Four punnets of any herbs or veggie saplings cost $15..which according to my wife is good value as you get almost 6-7 saplings in each punnet. A 15 litre bag of organic potting mix is $10.95.Not bad at all!!
