Nick, our resident horticulturalist, is on hand to provide guidance and share his passion for local flora and sustainable gardening practices.

A large section of Olivewood has been reserved for agricultural purposes and old citrus orchards can be found in the nursery being revived for planting on the grounds of the estate. In addition to citrus orchards, a number of trees – including pomegranate, avocado and a selection of nut species – are being primed for inclusion in our expansive agricultural areas.

Whether you are interested in creating a garden of your own or would just like to peruse the rows of shrubs, flowers and trees, our nursery is one of the highlights of our estate.

In addition to looking after the nursery, Nick and his team offer a professional garden maintenance and landscaping services to homeowners. For more information call Nick on xxxx or email xxxx
