We thank you for making 2016 another record year and for all the comments we received about how special, different and wonderful Lost Horizons is. The nursery is still for sale and we are hoping that someone will take on the challenge and continue to grow and improve the nursery.

We have not stood still and have made many improvements in the nursery, rehabilitated the entrance gardens and extended gardens along the creek, and in the catalogue there are many exciting new plants to make your gardens even closer to your heart.

We also invite you to browse our A-Z Plant List online, where you’ll see a picture (in most cases) of the plant as well as information.

We would also like to thank the staff Andrew, Basia and Joe for their amazing effort in maintaining the nursery and dealing with visitors. We would also like to thank Brock for handling the plant database and Sandy Gillians for her work on the website, newsletters, and social media.

Sad News: Harvey Wrightman

There are many wonderful gardens and passionate gardeners but they are not so common in the trade so we were saddened to hear of the passing of Harvey Wrightman of Wrightman Alpines before Christmas.

I have many fond memories of wandering around with Harvey as he excitedly showed his latest gems and later sitting around their kitchen table discussing all things horticultural while enjoying some of Irene’s homemade cooking.

Fortunately it is not the end of the nursery as Harvey’s daughter Esther who has been working in the nursery will now run it. Esther has written a very touching and authentic tribute to growing up in and working in the nursery with her father that is posted on their website.

We wish Irene,Esther and the rest of the family our best wishes
in this difficult time.
