Native Nursery

Pine COnes

Take a look at  what we did previously. We hope to make it better......

Native Nursery

Gamiing Nature Centre has no  longer an active Native Nursery.
We hope someone who is interested in native plant growing will contact us soon and start it again.
We can discuss arrangements suitable to both of us.

A native nursery  grows only plant species that evolved naturally in our region and were here before Europeans arrived. Sustainable landscape design encourages the use of native plants because they generally require less irrigation than non-natives, attract native animals (particularly pollinating and seed-dispersing insects and birds), and repel or survive native insects and diseases. In contrast, non-native plants often require more intensive watering and can become invasive if they spread aggressively. We will keep the catalogue online. Browse through it and see the many beautiful species you can grow.

We still will offer workshops "Gardening with Native Species" which are becoming more and more popular. Be aware !! much of what  is sold as "native" may have been grown outside our region. To help you find what is best for your garden, we offer workshops on:

  • Native gardening
  • Xeriscaping
  • Natural
  • Wet garden

Workshops are offered on Wednesday evenings during the months of June and August. Starting time is 7pm. Depending on the weather and topic the workshops may be delivered outdoors. Otherwise we will gather in the Discovery Shack.
