City Farm’s plant of the month is the Pandorea jasminoides rosea

The City Farm ‘Plant of the Month’ is “Pandorea jasminoides rosea”, commonly known as Bower of Beauty.

An attractive vine with dark, glossy leaves and large pale pink blooms with a deep scarlet throat. The fruit is an oblong woody capsule. This is a hardy climber and tolerates most soils and will cope with full sun, but prefers a little shade.

This plant loves a good prune and in early spring fertilise well with a native fertiliser and you will be well rewarded. This plant attracts bees, butterflies and birds.

City Farm will be closing down on December 17, for our Christmas break, and will reopen to the public on Tuesday January 5, 2021.

We at City Farm Nursery would like to take this opportunity in wishing all our customers a very happy and safe Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

We would like to reiterate that we are a cash-only organisation.

City Farm Nursery is located opposite the Community Centre on Tin Can Bay Road and is open to the public now, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays 8am-3pm. We do realise that Covid-19 is still going to be ever present in our lives for a while, but we at City Farm are trying our best to live within the boundaries.
