Weddin’s native nursery looks fantastic as spring approaches. | Grenfell’s record
Weddin’s native nursery is in full bloom with the beautiful spring weather bringing out native flowers that locals can buy and admire in their own gardens.
Now that the lock has been lifted, the nursery is open, but some restrictions are still in place, so keep reading below if you want to know how to browse and purchase the native flora currently in stock.
If you walk or drive around Grenfell, visit the Endemic Garden, located in the O’Briens Observation Area at the top of Hospital Hill, where many native plants are at their best at this time.
You can identify the ones you like and head to 43 East St, towards Henry Lawson High School, where you will be rewarded with a delightful display of native daisies in the front garden of the Weddin Community Nursery.
The entrance to the crèche is located within the walls of the old TAFE building.
Noel Cartwright is the main responsible for this project.
He scattered seeds in the newly prepared, well-drained garden in the fall and our wonderful season and the volunteers did the rest.
This garden also features Brundah Mint Bush in bloom.
There are plenty of native plants / trees / shrubs / ground covers that you can buy at very reasonable prices and now is a great time to plant.
