Inspired moments in store, and a general celebration of all things garden...
Welcome to our Instagram feed.
View into our little urban jungle 🌱there lots for everyone! Today we had a visitor all the way from Albury! You never know what you will find when you go looking 🍃
Lovely bees enjoying all our flowering cottage perennials. Freshly stocked today with lots of hardy summer flowering plants! These Stachys byzantina are one of my old favourites, the furry grey foliage is just adorable.
Smile 😊 just a friendly reminder to check your cucumbers & zucchini’s each day as they grow so quickly you soon end up with a monster like this! It’s supposed to be a patio snack cucumber. The one above I picked at just the right time! Perfect little snack size! Now get in my tummy! (Who am I kidding, one of my kids tummies, they love these! I never get any!)
Cats love plants too! Here is Cloud enjoying his bowl of catnip and a quick picture of him after! Little Willow likes it too!
After a scoring 43 degree day in Melbourne yesterday, strong winds & then rain my Iceberg Roses are still looking exceptional! These are growing so happily in my front garden with very little attention apart from a good prune in July, a dose of Sudden Impact for Roses in spring & then a light prune in late summer. They flower from early spring right through until the beginning of winter! They also have a very pretty light fragrance to them which I just love. An often overlooked rose but certainly a strong performer.
Special order of 135 petunias just arrived in store, now to keep these in pristine condition until their delivery to the clients property on Monday. Wish us luck on this hot windy day in Malvern.
Please call us on 98223305 to check we are open on Friday 4th January 2019 as temperatures are extreme. Rest assured we prioritise our plants and will make sure they are all well watered. Please check your plants are watered early in the morning. It’s going to be hot as! Keep cool plant lovers 💕
Early morning pickings! Beautiful fresh assortment of Cherry & Roma tomatoes. Planted in late October I’m now reaping the rewards of spring planting! Along with edible flowers & basil it’s looking like lunch!
Hey, Plant gang it’s going to be hot out there the next 2 days in Melbourne make sure you take extra care of those plant babies!!! These little ones are having hump day drinks! How about you? Get your plants hydrated!!! And add a sneaky one for yourself!!! 😉
Wishing all the plant people a very planty New Year! Stay safe & remember to water your plant babies during this hot weather. We will be closed for the day but back on board for an exciting year 9-5 everyday.
White hydrangeas are back in store, just in time for Christmas! These are an exceptionally large flowering variety, with white blooms that age to shades of pink and green. For those of you waiting for oak leaf hydrangeas, we had a fresh drop of those in today too 🌿
Heatwave alert! It's going to be a scorcher in Melbourne tomorrow, so don't forget to protect your hydrangeas from the sun and keep them well watered. At Town & Country Gardens we water ours twice a day once the temperatures warm up, and strongly recommend you do the same!
