Welcome Green-Thumbs & other gardening enthusiasts...
and those who would like to be! You can find us in the real world on Penrose Cresent at Erina, just opposite Caesars Coffee Shop (right near Erina Fair). We're open everyday from 8.30am-5pm. Stay tuned for information on what's in season in the nursery and aquarium centre, new products and plants and lots of info and links related to growing your own food plants and environmentally friendly gardening methods.

So the old sales pitch "What's Hot in the Nursery?" seems more than apt at the moment after a small fire recently made a big mess of the nursery indoor area and aquarium.....however this week the clean-up has begun and the nursery showroom and aquarium is showing signs of being better than ever. While our shop and aquarium gets a lovely new coat of paint and fresh carpet, we're going alfresco-style, with all the things you need for gardening and keeping your fish happy and thriving now available in big white marquees in the yard. Those of you who requested a sales desk right by the gate, your wish has been granted! Have a nice long wander around and soak up the atmosphere, or pop in quickly for that extra bag of potting mix and get in & out without having to walk over to the shop.

The staff at Penrose Garden & Aquarium are very sad to advise that after a short bout of illness, our giant Gourami, Strawberry, passed away on the morning of 18th August 2012.
Named by Matt for her love of strawberries and other fruit, 'Strawbs' as she was affectionately known, was 14.5 years old, having spent the last 10 years of her life lovingly cared for by Matt and the aquarium crew. Much loved and pampered by staff and customers alike, Strawbs has been the 'mascot' of our nursery and aquarium and will be greatly missed.

Fluval 'Edge' Aquariums are in store now.
Ultra modern design from Fluval morphs the functional glass aquarium into a real feature piece. Minimising the stand and filtration system opens up the top and sides of the aqaurium, allowing fish and plants to be viewed from all sides.
Available in two sizes, the 23lt comes in Black, White, and Pewter. The larger 46 lt is available in Black and White.
Kit includes lighting, filter, bacteria and water conditioner- just add water and fish.
Extra accessories are also available, including a matching stand fits both small and large Fluval Edge aquariums.
-Congratulations to 'Esther' -
