Backhousia citriodora ~ Lemon Myrtle

We love this variety – for both its use as a bush food as well as its ornamental qualities. A small to medium tree with glossy green aromatic leaves and fluffy white flowerheads from Summer through to Autumn, it also offers culinary uses for flavouring all sorts of dishes. It can be kept as a shrub with regulary pruning. Be sure to plant in a sunny spot with well drained soil and feed regularly during the warmer months of the year. Typically a rainforest specimen, it can take light frosts, but the foliage will be damaged.

Platycerium bifurcatum ~ Elkhorn Fern

Impressive and dramatic, the elkhorn fern is easy to grow onto trees, patios and in hanging baskets.

With flat, round leaves that hug branches and long antler like leaves that hang down and grow upwards, this is a feature plant for your garden or outdoor space. But be warned, this striking specimen prefers humidity, needs extra watering in dryer months and is not frost hardy.

We’re delighted to have this interesting variety added to our e-nursery collection. Kunzea pomifera is an easy to grow ground cover that can also work as a trellis plant too. Super hardy, tolerant of frost, drought and can happily grow in most soil types – this pretty native produces an abundance of white flowers in Spring followed by berries in late summer and early autumn. As an added bonus, the berries provide a delicious bush fruit.
