Specialty plants from the Friends of Nardoo and demonstrations and advice from expert green thumbs are all on offer at an upcoming Nardoo Nursery plant sale event.
Whether it be indoor or outdoor plants the event will have the perfect plant for your space.
Nardoo Nursey is inviting the community to visit as part of its Friends of Nardoo plant sale on November 6 from 8am – 12pm.
The Friends of Nardoo group is made up of private plant growers in the region who will be selling a great range of plants on the day, with some specialty plants on offer in addition to the plants grown by the nursery.
Nardoo Nursery Horticultural Manager Anne Davies said there would be a range of activities happening throughout the day for people who attended to find out more about both plants and gardening.
“On the day we will have a propagation demonstration at 10am and Lyn will be demonstrating how to grow plants from cuttings as well as give tours around our growing facilities,” Anne said.
“There will be a great range of plants for sale including some specialty plants from the Friends of Nardoo group.
“We will have a coffee van and people are welcome to walk around the six acres of landscaped gardens with dogs also welcome on leash.”
Anne encouraged people to visit the plant sale to explore all that the nursey has on offer and ask any questions they may have about their own gardens.
“We are very focused on great customer service and helping people pick the right plants for their gardens and with two horticulturists onsite it means we can answer most garden enquiries,” she said.
“We grow all our plants here onsite off the stock growing in our gardens so they are very hardy, healthy plants.”
Nardoo nursery is a not-for-profit enterprise of Community Lifestyle Support with all profits going towards supporting people with a disability to engage in the community.
“By attending this day people are supporting people with a disability and spreading the word about this great place,” Anne said.
“Nardoo Nursey supports people with a disability to engage in community, having also been involved in training long term unemployed people to be ready to return for the workforce.
“We have a strong volunteer program and our volunteers learn all about growing plants and we provide a safe and social working environment.”
Nardoo is always looking for volunteers and encourages anyone with an interest in gardening to visit them to find out more.
“We are always looking for more volunteers but they must have a Blue card or be willing to apply for one,” Anne said.
“Anyone interested please feel free to drop in and we will give you a tour and show you what we do.”
Nardoo Nursery is located at 48 Ashfield Road, Kalkie.
