Shop for cottage perennials and edible plants

St Erth Garden Shop

The Diggers Garden Shop is housed within the original sandstone cottage from St Erth's Gold Rush heyday.

Inside, you'll find rooms full of our signature heirloom vegetable and cottage flower seeds and garden tools, while the nursery outside is stocked full of flowering plants, tomatoes, strawberries, fruit trees, shrubs,  and garden ideas.   

Book in to a monthly garden workshop and ask about upcoming masterclasses.

Fruit and vegie essentials

As fruit plumpens up and vegies mature stock up on netting to keep pesky birds at bay. Ask our gardeners for tips on the best way to net fruit trees and see how they keep a thriving garden going in the middle of a State Forest.

Hardy flowers for summer

With the perennial borders in full bloom now is the perfect time to shop! Stock up on hardy flowers and ask our team about their tips for keeping the garden looking in the best condition over the coming months.
