With its roots firmly planted in the history of the area, family owned and operated Wyee Nursery wants to help your garden grow, says long-time owner Nichole Roberts.

“One of the great things about the nursery is the quality of advice you will receive,” she says.

“Our nursery manager Russell Brown has been in the industry for more than 30 years and is university qualified.

“Our team will even visit your garden to recommend which plants or trees you should have to get the garden you want, and they will give you advice on how best to take care of it.”

Priding themselves on their expert knowledge – with five horticulturists on the staff – and an array of plants available, Nichole says the nursery can help you ensure your garden is looking its best. And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, she says staff can source it for you and have it delivered.

“It’s not only a great place to stock up for your garden but also to take the family for a day out,” Nichole says.

Only a 15-minute drive from Watagan Park, she says there’s something to keep everyone entertained, from the beautiful array of plants and trees, to the relaxing café, fish pond and aviary. Nichole and her husband Adrian Roberts have owned Wyee Nursery for more than 10 years, with Adrian’s history going back two decades, starting in the business doing deliveries of sand and soil.

“It’s a great place to take the family that doesn’t have to cost a thing,” Nichole says.

“You can bring the kids along to see the fish or the birds, or enjoy a nice cup of coffee in our café.”

The grounds of the nursery are filled with an amazing variety of nearly every kind of plant you could think of, from beautiful flowering camellias, the rare native Ylang Ylang tree to delicious herbs just waiting to bring that extra flavour to your winter roasts. With winter just around the corner, Nichole advises now is the time to plant your roses, with some new limited edition varieties available at the nursery.

“If you buy and plant them now you will have some beautiful roses for summer,” she says.

“Our stock is two to three years old and good quality, no matter what people buy we want them to enjoy it and to really love their gardens.”

You can also cut down on your grocery bill by planting your own vegetable garden, and due to the mild climate here, Nichole says it’s possible to grow species such as avocados, bananas and even lychees.

“We have a lot of rare fruit trees which people love to buy to grow their own,” Nichole says.

“You can also come and see us for advice on starting your veggie garden so you can enjoy a delicious winter harvest.”
