SOME people have an obvious eye for detail and a naturally artistic flare, which despite trying, I can never seem to master. I’ve discovered this gorgeous little nursery in Mooroopna that screams creativity and frankly I’ve been hoping to get the opportunity to write about it.

Michelle Banfield is a landscape designer and horticulturist who’s enjoyed 15 years of designing and landscaping around the GV region prior to starting her very unique and gorgeous nursery, ‘Flourish On McLennan.’  Not only does the nursery offer wonderfully unique gifts and plants as well as inspiring creativity, but Michelle and nursery manager Deb King, are just so warm and lovely to speak to, they’re happy to offer advice.

Michelle said, “We love to re-use and re-purpose items. I don’t like to see things go to waste and one of my favourites things to do is to inspire people in simple ways, which highlight nature’s rustic beauty.

“I also try to keep our prices affordable and we’ve been able to achieve that by propagating a lot of our plants and offering a lower resale point. Ultimately, we love what we do and we hope that’s evident in the beautiful space we’ve created.”

Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive and thoughtful desktop gift, some plants, garden furniture or inspiration, Flourish On McLennan is well worth a visit. Open Wednesday through to Sunday, visit Flourish Landscapes at 120 McLennan Street, Mooroopna.
