Welcome to the Diggers Club

Grow the garden you've always wanted

Join the Diggers Club and get your garden growing

We believe that everyone can have a garden that is not only productive, but beautiful as well. For over 35 years we have worked to find the best plants for Australian gardens. As a Diggers Club member, you'll be given all the help you need to succeed in the garden. 

The Diggers Club began in 1978 with a mission to preserve and make available to Australian gardeners the best selections of garden worthy flowers, and the best tasting heirloom fruits and vegetables from around the world, selected by generations of home gardeners.

What to do in the garden for July

Visit a garden

We don't often think about visiting gardens in winter, but a winter visit can be most worthwhile. Take time to see how evergreen plants can be used as structural backbones and how hard landscaping is designed to bring together areas of the garden. 

Transplant shrubs

The winter months are the best time to move smaller deciduous plants around the garden. Dig up a good portion of the root ball, then place the plant on a tarp to move to its new location. Plant it to the same depth it was growing before and water in well. 

Grow some sprouts

Get your nutritional fix with healthy, home grown sprouts. Alfalfa, mung beans, radish and broccoli all make delicious sprouts in just 5 to 7 days. 

Diggers Garden and Environment Trust

Clive and Penny Blazey, founders of the Diggers Club, gifted ownership of their highly successful garden company along with family-owned properties Heronswood and St Erth to the Diggers Garden and Environment Trust in 2011.

“We established the Diggers Garden and Environment Trust to ensure that the work we’ve done over more than 30 years in preserving historic gardens and houses as well as the best garden traditions through education will continue forever,” said Clive.

The Trust strives to convserve historic gardens, buildings and cultural heritage and to protect heirloom seeds.
