• Best ornamental garden

• Best overall garden will be featured in the spring Sept/Oct edition of the The Friendly Bay !slander . Further details about our competition will be in next issue , or pop into the nursery, have a cappuccino and talk to Jacqui.

Roses are our big feature in store right now, with stunning varieties like Mr Lincoln, Blue Moon, Princesse de Monaco, freesia, double delight, Queen Elizabeth, Eiffel Tower , Peter Frankenfeld and iceberg.

Like any plant , roses need good soil preparation by adding organic compost like active 8 into the ground or pot . Roses also like to be raised a little to promote drainage, along with a daily gentle water mid morning so the foliage dries out before dark, as well as a specific rose fertilizer . To finish , a nice thick layer of mulch like sugar cane, pine bark or cypress around the base, but not touching the stem .

Come and smell the roses and check out our wide range of gardening supplies as well as produce which includes chicken mash and pellets , wild bird and parrot seed, sunflower, cracked corn and wheat all in 20 kg or 5 kg bags , chick starter, duck and guinea pig food .

Pick your own organic herbs, let the kids mingle with our mini zoo pets , while having a lovely cappuccino, hot choc , chai latte or tea .

Lots to see at Canaipa Nursery ! Open 7 days
