Urban and Rural Plants is run by Lee Mckie and his business partner, Sam Rankin.
The heat in the poly tunnel makes a perfect home for the more tender plants that Urban and Rural stock. On the particular day that we visited, there were several banana plants in full flower as well as a large selection of tropical Palms, Ferns and Cannas.
Lee is well known in the industry and as such many landscaping businesses around the country rely on him to supply the very best in terms of quality specimens, as well as the unusual. Whilst Urban and Rural Plants, are mainly a trade nursery, they do have regular open weekends when the public are welcome to visit. One such weekend is this coming Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th, July 2012 where their latest range will be on view including:
· Italian Cypress
· Eucalyptus Trees & Bushes
· Grape Vines (mature)
· Pittosporum Tobira

· Tall Olive Standards
· Rosa Banksia (pink, yellow and white)
· Large Leaf Ivy Climbers
· Bird of Paradise
· Lime Trees
· Agave Mediopicta
· Money Plants (Crassula)
The Olive Tree
Keep an eye on our magazine as The Gardening Times.com will be returning to the nursery at a later date to follow the movements of the large potted olive tree to its final destination.
