Spring Inspiration

A new range and an old favourite garden this spring will be just what we need.

Check out Mr Fothergills summer bulbs and Nooroo, Mt Wilson this spring


Nooroo, a stunning garden in Mt Wilson, NSW


Wisteria Wonderland

It's that time of year again, where Anthony and Lorraine Barrett open Nooroo, their stunning garden in Mt Wilson, NSW. While famous for its wisteria collection – originally planted by botanist Peter Valder – there is so much more to see. Rare maples, magnolias, lilacs, peonies and banks of mollis azaleas and rhododendrons also fill the landscape, providing the garden with a timeless quality and interest with every season. Nooroo opens from mid-September to late November. For more information, visit or call (o2) 4756 2018.


Bulb & Beautiful 

Fill your garden with the spectacular new summer bulbs from Mr. Fothergills. They’re adding more colourways to their dahlia range, with gorgeous pastel pinks, creams and golden-russet tones. We know you’ll fall in love with ‘Lollipop’ or ‘Marshmallow’ – just like we have!




If you prefer the look of oriental lilies, look for ‘Beverly Dreams’ and ‘Eastern Moon’. Both are highly fragrant and can produce up to 20 blooms on each stem.




For a bulb with a difference, try calla lilly ‘Black Star’. The black-purple flowers are an exotic, but elegant addition to your flower garden. Plus, they’re one of the best cut flowers available. For more information, visit or drop into your nearest well-stocked independent garden retailer.
