Warrick's must see garden nursery and café
Awesome, spectacular, unexpected, breathtaking are some of the superlatives that come to mind when visiting Warrick Gardens Galore. From the road, there is nothing to prepare you for the surprise you will get the minute you step inside the door. First, you will be greeted by the very friendly part-owner Michelle. When she is not greeting customers or attending to their purchases, she is bunching up gorgeous flowers.



Turn left and you will be dazzled with an enormous array of homewares which eventually become mingled with women's accessories and clothing. Spectacular displays will have you gasping as you try to make a decision about what you like the most. After a slow walk, you will find yourself in the enormous cafe where once again your decision-making will be tested. So many delicious choices are available.

The home of delicious food


Continue on out the back, where you will find more surprises. Take a slow walk around the nursery and everywhere you look you will find something of interest. Some as small as a wee ornament hanging from a window ledge to a large elephant trying to hide amongst the potted plants. There is a huge array of pots to put your plants in. They come in so many different sizes and designs that choosing one will be difficult.

I can see you !!

Dinner time at the chook pen


At the rear, there are more surprises. A wee boutique called Amapola where you can buy gelato in many tempting flavours and lovely lilac coloured seats and tables to sit at while you enjoy it and view the nursery at your leisure. There you can also check out a stunning array of women's dresses and accessories.

Rest awhile to enjoy your gelato


Warrick is called the Rose City, so needless to say many people grow roses. About 4,000 bare-rooted rose bushes are bought every year and are potted up ready for sale. Also, 3,000 deciduous trees.

Look carefully and you will notice that recycling plays a big part in their displays and a lot of it has been glamourised by Nikki's colourful paintwork. There is also outdoor seating alongside a wall lined with cups and saucers. More recycling.

The cafe is available for functions. Being a good size, the tables are quite spread out, so there is plenty of room for prams, walkers and wheelchairs. You will never feel overcrowded.

Nothing is wasted


The nursery was established 18 years ago by Michelle and Bruce Hoffman and has now evolved into Warrick's must-visit treasure trove. Their son Clint works there full time along with a lot of friendly helpful staff.

So hard to choose
