Specialising in Bamboo and Tropical Garden Plants
The Fern Forest in Willunga is a garden nursery that has not only undergone a name change but a complete tropical revamp. Now known as the Jungle in Willunga, this is a one-stop shop for your entire garden needs. It features an extensive tropical garden for visitors to wander in and be inspired.
The Jungle The nursery specialises in bamboo and tropical garden plants. There is a large canopy of palms and tropical gardens in which the visitor can wander and check out landscaping and plant ideas. There are winding and hidden paths and sitting areas and garden sculpture features, including the recent addition of a panda to the family.
The nursery stocks a huge range of garden pots, which are scattered through the nursery with good effect. Large terracotta pots can accommodate larger palms to create your own tropical garden as well as pots in all shapes and sizes.
Water Lilies There are water plants, ferns, orchids and indoor plants to choose from. The large plant nursery also has garden ornaments and a collection of art works. Your garden need be anything but dull.
The nursery owners will also assist with the use of bamboo, as a feature plant and in landscaping options. The Jungle crew are specialists in this area, so bring along any questions. This has long been a garden refuge with its large tropical design and well worth the trek to Willunga.
