Is your gardening having a negative impact on your environment with the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers? Do you want to learn how to use Native plants to preserve and protect the eco system you're living in? New Leaf Nursery on the Northern Beaches specialises in sustainable living.

I had heard about this wonderful Nursery only recently through a friend. Situated at 224 Powderworks Road, Ingleside. You must keep your eyes peeled for their signage as it can be easily missed. You enter from the side off Wilson street. The outside doesn't look overly impressive but on entering you immediately feel a welcoming peaceful atmosphere. I came across the Watch Chicken who was sauntering around the entrance not bothered at all by people walking in.

Mr Chicken took me on a Tour of what I could see was a wonderful oasis of plants and interesting things to buy for the garden.

Row after row of beautiful healthy plants, flowers and shrubs were on display. There is also a great range of edible plants, fruit trees, herbs and native bush tucker. I could see how a person could spend an hour or two here.

A great variety of plants, flowers, grass and bamboo. I didn't realize there was so many types of grass and bamboo.

New Leaf Nursery is owned and run by husband and wife team, Daniel and Simone Yakich. You can easily see love and care has gone into creating a unique Nursery that not only the gardener in the family would enjoy but also the kids. There are plenty of toys and Children's bikes around so the kids can take off and explore.

I thought the kids' play area and lounge for mums to relax is a nice idea and no doubt will make the kids beg to come back again soon.

Around every corner you can find new areas to enjoy and the friendly staff are not intrusive but quite willing to help you if you need any assistance in deciding what to buy.

Here you can learn all you need to know to start growing your own sustainable garden and landscaping tips to create an environment that imitates the natural processes using native plants, garden design and non chemical treatments that will be safe for the whole family to use. New Leaf Nursery can also arrange a free in house consultation and give you advice and quotes on designing your very own sustainable garden at home.

Animals to buy and Petting Zoo

The kids will be so excited to see such a range of baby chicks, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks and quails. There was even a Pig here once but he became a pet and they couldn't bear to sell him so he now lives over the road nearby.

This Nursery provides a beautiful farm-like environment with a custom built small Pen filled with a large range of Chickens and so colourful. You can go in and sit amongst them. The kids will love it.

It's wonderful to get up close to these amazing colourful Chickens. Some had quite a bit of personality and weren't fazed at all by my presence.

The Petting Zoo is open every day. Each child will receive a free bucket of feed and will get to feed the baby chicks and animals throughout the Nursery.

Open 7 days a week from 9am until 5pm this lovely Nursery is well worth a visit.
