Go Travel Leura: Time to pick, pot and plant -- gardening at last!
With temperatures rising to 21c. this week, blossoms like these (above) will change the scenery of the Blue Mountains. Thank goodness! Tuesday might be the perfect day for a walk through Everglades Gardens or a picnic on The Mall divider.
Picnic on a sunny day
If you have been waiting for perfect gardening weather, this week might just be 'it'. Time to search out favourite plants, buy a gorgeous Italian pot and put your body to work in the garden. Leura has the perfect place to satisfy all your garden needs!
Looking through the nursery-centre gate, we get the distinct impression of a ready-made garden: herbs, cottage plants, seedlings and trees and, in the garden, two beautiful flowering Japanese Cherry. Handsome gurgling water features strategically spaced throughout provide a sense of tranquility.
A recent addition is the handmade ornamental terracotta, truly Tuscany works of art. Fired in a century-old furnace, these are so unique and so beautiful you’ll want to consider one or perhaps more for your garden.
Cut flowers are always in stock and the gift shop overflows with beautiful decorative items for the home. So many unique and charming items you won’t find anywhere else. We do love shopping here – it is a petite shop and our creative juices start to flow with every visit.
Birches of Leura is home to the Scarecrow Competition at the Leura Harvest Festival each autumn - creative, inventive and unconventional entries hang throughout the garden in May.
