Easter Thankyou Gift

We have a lot to be thankful for this Easter! After 6 months of hard work, we’ve bought back mum and dad’s farm and Campbellfield nursery. For those of you newly on the scene, in August last year Chris & Marie’s Plant Farm was entered into liquidation at the request of the ATO due to late payment of taxes. As Chris & Marie’s employed many members of our family as well as close friends, it was tough and at times heartbreaking.

To save the bacon and keep dad employed doing the only thing he knows how, the kids and our staff pooled resources, time and skills and opened a new nursery in Ascot Vale. We were able to save some jobs, and working hard, fought into a position where we were finally able to buy back the remaining assets (or what was left of them) from the liquidators of Chris & Marie’s.

We still have a lot of hard work ahead of us, but the first hurdle is overcome. We have to give a huge thanks to all our customers who have supported us during this time.

To celebrate and say thanks in a big way, we’re giving away a free Glory Vine to every customer who spends over 1 cent at either our Ascot Vale or Campbellfield nursery this Easter weekend. The Glory Vine is a beautiful ornamental grape vine and is one of our favourite things we grow ourselves.
