Zanthorrea Nursery, Maida Vale

Zanthora Nursery, Maida Vale

Found in the foothills, Zanthorrea Nursery Maida Vale, is my very favourite plant nursery. It’s very easy to see why the beautifully set out garden centre has won so many awards, it’s brilliant. And it’s won the AGIA ‘Best Garden Centre in Australia’ SEVEN times in the last 20+ years.

Zanthorrea , which specialises in quality Australian native plants, is a very interesting place for gardening enthusiasts to visit, whether to pick up some seedlings, outdoor ornaments or just enjoy a stroll and get a little inspiration for your own garden.

The entrance features a large selection of gardening books and giftware, much of it is organic, environmentally sound, Australian themed (great for gifts to send overseas!), and where applicable, fair trade and ethically sourced. It’s very difficult to come away without treating yourself.

Outside, the nursery is well set out in sections… ground covers, coastal plants, shady plants, herbs and vegetable seedlings, as well as unique Aussie “bush tucker” plants. You’re guaranteed to find something unusual at Zanthora.
