Roseburra Gardens

Roseburra Gardens

shop-roseburra6Roseburra Gardens - Yungaburrashop-roseburra7On your drive around or visit to the Tablelands, locals and visitors can call into to Roseburra Gardens and depending on the season select from a variety of roses, carnations and gerberas to brighten up your home and share with family and friends.

We have roses, carnations, gerberas and in winter we will have snapdragons and stock. All the flowers are grown here on our farm. We have a stall at the Yungabura Markets with our popular “guess the number of flowers in the bunch” so come along and have a go. The winner takes the whole bunch home.

What better way to say thanks to someone who has been looking after your children or pets than with a bunch of flowers. Flowers are in bunches of 10 stems for you to make your own creation. Prices vary with the seasons. Flower Workshops are held on the farm when flowers are in good supply.

Pictured are some of the creations from the workshops, – red roses, gerberas and one of our “guess the number bunches”
