St Erth Garden Shop

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

Winter brings a feeling of peace, tranquillity & beauty down at The Garden of St Erth, peruse our beautiful range of fruit trees adorned with moss and be captivated by the colour of the Cornus in the misty background of beautiful Blackwood. It's the perfect time for budding fruit tree enthusiasts and future espalier extraordinaire's. Come and see the way our deciduous fruit trees are structured, trained and pruned. 

Planting seeds? it’s not too late! With a large variety still available to choose from such as our popular chefs winter patch collection. It's the perfect time to improve your soil structure and get ready for the spring growth madness, simply caring for soil fertility and biological health will keep many potential problems at bay. With a surplus of winter bare root stock arriving in June/July,  the time to establish that dream home orchard or edible garden before summer is now, so get planting! 

There is plenty of excitement and beauty in our coldest season at St Erth, now is the time to get your garden ready for spring!!

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.
