The Retreat Pelargoniums / About Us

/ About Us /


Retreat Pelargoniums are on the move...

The new location is situated just southwest of the centre of Gympie.
We, Tony and Leanne Hardwick, have a small rural acreage that is our little piece of paradise! We keep a small flock of Wiltipole sheep and a very small herd of Dexter cattle that we milk. The addition of the nursery completes this utopia.

We have had an interest in all things plant for a long time and my memories of enjoying Geraniums goes a long way back to my early childhood where my Grandmother had them growing beautifully on the Atherton Tablelands – I loved the smell as you brushed past.
Then there were those photographs of Italy that always tugged my heart strings and it was only on a recent trip that I realised those traditional scenes that drew me in, all had magnificent red pelargoniums in window boxes, small gardens and courtyards. I am hooked.

With the valued assistance of Rodney and Karen, and some wonderful family, Tony and I are beginning this exciting journey, one that we hope will bring not only great joy to us, but one that will help others see the amazing benefits of pelargoniums in Australian Gardens.
These remarkable power houses of colour and vibrancy go equally well in small courtyards or large hedge plantings; in traditional gardens or ultra moderns, they will bring all sorts of fragrances to your garden, including some that can keep those pesky mozzies at bay!

Please feel free to email us any queries you have using our contact page.
We will also begin posting photographs that you want to share of your Pelargoniums soon. The new nursery will be a bit of a construction site for a while and our new “babies” may take a little settling, as soon as they are we will let you know and you can make an appointment to visit.

Enjoy our Website and HAVE A GREAT DAY, we look forward to hearing from you.
