Ross Conifers Garden Nursery, who sell top quality local plants grown with love, have been involved with Tarana Community Farmers Markets since the first very market.
In many ways, Ross Conifers has helped put Tarana on the map. Owners Allan and Elizabeth Ross established their nursery and display gardens 7km outside Tarana in 1976, when they found the perfect spot to relocate their nursery from Sydney’s Castle Hill. The picturesque mountain setting and cool climate was just the combination they were looking for.
For those with a green thumb our upcoming market will be the last opportunity to combine a trip to the Tarana markets with a visit to the popular nursery. After 52 years providing gardeners across NSW with beautiful high quality plants, the Ross’s iconic nursery will be winding back as the couple move into retirement in May 2019.
Over the years Ross Conifers has gained a devoted following of people across NSW. Many drive hundreds of miles to fill their garden with the nursery’s huge variety of plants and to take advantage of Allan and Elizabeth’s extensive plant knowledge. The nursery not only stocks their famous conifers but also a large range of cool climate and deciduous trees, hardy shrubs and wind breaks.
Of course, part of the experience has been the stunning drive through the picturesque Tarana Valley and a trip to the markets. Allan and Elizabeth would like to thank all those who have supported their nursery over the years and especially those who have seen our plants at the markets and come to visit.
For seasoned and aspiring gardeners now is the time to get into Ross Conifers Garden Nursery to get your hands on their last ever crop of quality stock!
