A year of transformation
A year ago water restrictions reached level 4 in Tamworth. This meant that plant sales came to virtually a standstill. Interest in gardening dropped off a cliff and, within four months, work had all but dried up. By September we were running out of water and having to cart from town.
Spring saw early heat, continued dry and blossom crisping on the fruit trees. There were no cherries for the second year running.
The nursery had to be abandoned in November and all stock relocated to Nelson Bay in order to retain some form of value. The fires, smoke and record heat saw not much market there either.
When the rains came, hope came with it and in March it was decided to try the market back at home ... just in time for shutdown!
However, it is so good to be home and to be surrounded by green.
Now we are trying selling our plants and produce online. Bear with us as we navigate this new area.
If you're interested in what we have, take a look. We are going to offer delivery to the local areas of Tamworth and Loomberah with a possibility to extend to surrounds.
