Branch Out Nursery
I'm a retired photographer living in Lilydale mainly researching and writing on Australian aviation history. Now writing more on general subjects.

In a pot or punnet, it's there
This nursery may not be big in size but it is huge in the range of plants for your garden.
Also huge is the knowledge of the staff. On my two visits there, a constant stream of customers were asking questions and receiving answers to their gardening needs.

Nothing looks more enticing than a mass display of colourful flowers and almost before you exit your car in the off-street car park, you are enticed.
Your first sighting.
There is such a range of colourful flora, it's almost like being in a cake shop - "
One of each please
." The cake will give short term pleasure, but the plants will be everlasting.
What catches your eye from anywhere in the nursery are the displays of the brilliant red Poinsettia plants.
How red are these poinsettias?
Hanging baskets or pots look very attractive in areas of limited space and if planted with plants that cascade over the pots, they make attractive features. Branch Out Nursery can supply pots with and without inhabitants.
Just hanging around.
For outside areas, a large range of sizes of terra cotta pots would look good in any garden.
The non-hanging variety.
Under the veranda of the sales are hanging baskets, full of colourful blooms with many overflowing with colour.

Behind the shop are greenhouse and shade-loving plants and more hanging baskets.
Home for the shade lovers.
Inside the shop, a range of garden supplies will help you grow your garden. Seeds are available for those who like to start from scratch.
Everything you need, apart from the plants.
If you are impatient, instead of planting seeds, you can get seedlings of both flowers and vegetables from one of the undercover outside areas.
Large range of flower and vegetable seedlings.
If roses are your thing, you won't be disappointed with the range here.
Many, many roses.
Hypnotica dahlia is a relatively new variety of dahlia grown in pots and come in a variety of colours.
More of them.
With such a range of possibilities, you need the knowledge of the staff to get your ideal plant.
The sales shop.
Plants in pots make ideal presents which will give years of joy to the recipient and you will remain in their memory every time they look at them. Maybe not a cactus plant though.
