I think gumboots may have become a staple fashion item this winter and spring in most households. I mean how much rain can you have? At least it has been a cracking start to spring for the garden with everything looking lush and healthy.
There are so many beautiful plants available right now and the nursery is looking like a permanent Floriade. I love walking through the seedling area with the beautiful vegetable seedlings just waiting to be planted so they can produce delicious veggies.
We have spent our winter under construction with beautiful new bathrooms (so hopefully no more queues) and a dedicated fitting room for trying on clothes from our fashion range. For the kids there is a huge new playground with a massive fort to explore (complete with soft fall to help the little ones bounce if they fall over and also keep them clean).
Weekends are filled with a wonderful vibe with our BBQ's going and music playing from some amazingly talented local singers and bands. The café has a great menu just right for lazing about on weekends with delicious breakfasts and long relaxing lunches.
Our home and giftware areas are filled with beautiful new products that get more stylish every year. Now is a great time to start thinking about those hard to buy for people and putting things away for Christmas - so avoid the last minute panic and visit us to see the range.
Don't forget to book now for our Carols by Candlelight dinner in the café on Thursday December 8th.
We look forward to seeing you, Happy Gardening, Rodney
