SPRING BLOSSOM FESTIVAL ON NOW IN MOUNT GAMBIER
What a buffeting we have had in recent weeks and this has without doubt been one of the longest, coldest, drawn out starts to Spring in a long time, if you can even call it Spring!! It must be nevertheless, as the blossom trees and plants all around us are telling us so!! The wonderful thing about spring is the awakening of many of the trees, shrubs and myriad plants from their dormancy or resting period over winter.
Spring bulbs are in full swing and the Blossom Trees around the region are looking stunning despite the horrendous winds! We have been madly standing up advanced trees and securing them during these blasts at Limestone Coast Advanced Trees, both in our retail and growing areas amazed that the blossom hasn’t blown to Tasmania.
At Limestone Coast Advanced Trees (167 Bay Road, Mount Gambier) the Spring Blossom Festival is in full swing with hundreds of blossom trees including weeping cherries, mop top blossom trees, magnolias, crab apples and shrubs putting on massive displays. If you haven’t called in now is the time to come for a drive an marvel at the array on offer and pick up a stunning trees for your garden! With up to 50% off selected blossom trees and shrubs now is a great time to not only get a stunning plants but bag a bargain at the same time! (see advert facing page) We deliver throughout the Limestone Coast daily and in to Western Victoria daily as far across as Geelong, Horsham and beyond in addition to us sending plants and trees right across Australia.
Last long weekend we sold heaps of weeping flowering cherries which are all looking amazing in full bloom, especially the white with double pink just bursting in to flower as I write and we have just brought another load of magnolias in from the growing area, in full flower and bud, with the new dwarf series being extremely popular for smaller gardens and pots .Spring is also seedling time, with a vast array of flowering seedlings with bulk trays of petunias and marigolds on special and tomato plants are coming out of our ears with all sorts of specials available for spring!! I think we could safely say that tomato planting time is here and that the weather can only go forward from here.
Fruit and nut trees are also in blossom with some of our almond trees bearing nuts already and masses of flowers on the avocadoes so there should be some good crops on even our smaller trees this season. Half price avocadoes and assorted fruit and nut trees ends on Sunday 22nd October unless sold out prior. Rose are in full swing too, with some flowering already despite the cold winter and spring and we have some half price bush roses available for those wishing to pick up a last minute bargain!Spring weather has also brought many of us outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and even dine outside!
Our new season outdoor furniture styles are due in shortly but we are fully stocked with all of our range of Solid teak and stone furniture, cast aluminium, wicker and other hardwood ranges. There are some spring specials on outdoor settings as well as coffee/casual settings in real wicker which is often hard to find! (see website for our full range of outdoor Furniture).
The Spring Blossom Festival goes on until Sunday 22nd October at Gardenarium and Limestone Coast Advanced Trees joining forces to offer this amazing display at 167, Bay Road Mount Gambier, just a stone’s throw from the Blue Lake.
