When I heard Andrew had opened a succulent store on Wanneroo Rd I thought I would go have a look see. (Especially as it's out near RDA Capricorn, and I was there dropping off the kids regardless for their stint of volunteering for the week)
Anyway - first a link to the facebook page Andrew's Succulents. For anyone looking for it its just South of the intersection of Hester Ave/Wanneroo Rd. Freeway goes through to Hester Ave now - so its a head north on freeway, exit East on Hester Ave, Turn South on Wanneroo Rd. Drive past some service stations (which normally have a really good price for fuel) and its on the first corner (Menchetti Rd) you come to on the left.
First thoughts - well set out, with a range of good sized succulents at a good price. I'd say at this stage it was a great range of starter plants, with some harder to find things like Aloe polyphylla (spiral Aloe) and Buddha's temple. I imagine the range is only going to continue to expand, so well worth keeping an eye on.
Lots of parking on the premises as well, I didn't take photos of the garden, but you can see some work has gone into making an attractive display garden as well.
One of the things I really liked was the fact he had a LOT of ready to go display bowls and features, and some attractive displays of inside plants as well as of succulents.
All in all a nice stop!
I'll try to do a few more reviews of places around Perth. I think my next post might be home nurseries. I haven't visited any for a while, but this might motivate me to get out and do something that isn't kidlet related.
