Welcome to Rodney’s Plants Plus

Summer is here with those warmer days giving everyone something to talk about. Christmas is fast approaching and the shopping for those special gifts is underway, as well as those catch-ups with friends and family that we never seem to manage throughout the year.
Christmas shopping is easy at Rodney's, with a range of products that will be enjoyed by the whole family. Emma and Cheryl have bought some fabulous giftware in with new ranges of Laura Ashley, divine women's summer clothing, children's toys, and gardening sets, not to mention some stunning pots that you can choose a perfect specimen plant to pot into it. Or for that hard to buy person, why not get them a Rodney's gift voucher? Come in and see us, we will gift-wrap for free you're chosen gifts for you, and you can sit and relax with a coffee in the café.
There are heaps of activities happening at Rodney's in December, with our final Tuesday Talk on the 17th, Carols by Candlelight on Thursday 12th, the café will be open that night if you would like to book for dinner (a great way to catch up with friends). We also have our Christmas and Outdoor furniture catalogue sales on until the 24th December.
We at Rodney's have had a great year, working with all of you and hearing of your successes in the garden. We appreciate your support of our independent family business, and we look forward to sharing another great year with you in 2014.
From all of the staff at Rodney's we wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I love that winter has brought some rain with it in the first few days. Rain, followed by our beautiful Canberra winter sunshine, is perfect for our gardens and for us to be outside. 

The seasons have changed, so as always the range of plants, pots and giftware have changed to winter stock. Our fruit trees and deciduous trees have all arrived, and it is so inspiring to walk around and select some amazing specimens for the garden or pots. I love looking at the range of fruit trees, as I always find something that I want to plant with the thought of the delicious fruit that it will bear. I don't think that there is any simpler pleasure then picking homegrown fruit, straight from the tree. 

The women's fashion wear is looking fabulous with a range of amazing scarves; from silks, to wool as well as cottons and cashmere, in every colour, style and texture. The wraps, vests, and cardi's are also beautiful in different styles and materials - such a staple for winter.

Who doesn't adore a warm toasty fire in winter? We are loving the new range of fire pits, chimeneas and fire boxes, it makes me want to have one burning every night and just hang out around it. The atmosphere it lends to our outdoor areas is awesome, and a must for anytime of year (well except in total fire bans). 

The café has a delicious new winter menu, with warming food that will keep you going no matter what the temperature, and the best coffee that you can partake in while wandering the nursery, pondering additions to your garden. 

Come in and see us for a great idea or two. We look forward to seeing you.

Happy Gardening, Rodney
