We are proud to offer the best selection of potted colour and flowering perennials and groundcovers on the Central Coast.
Our "Landscape for Less" range includes plants for some more serious planting and is extensive too; you'll find best performing Lilly Pillies, Buxus, range of screening and hedging plants, hardy groundcovers, grasses etc, all lush and hand picked for best quality. Most importantly we support our local growers, contributing to our regional micro-economy.
We are known for our Native Plant range - a lot of healthy common varieties, but very often you can find here an odd ball, something you have not seen elsewhere.
Of course we will also tempt you with a range of edibles: huge selection of citrus trees, fruit trees, herbs and vegie seedlings. Our customers comment very often how healthy our seedlings are and they appreciate the time and effort we put in to maintaining our high standards.
Visiting us is an experience and all your senses will engage; you'll relax listening to carefully selected music. You'll enjoy the scent of our enviromentally friendly soy wax candles burning in the shop. You will admire the ladies fashion- ponchos, kaftans, scarves, sweaters and hand bags. And most importantly you will soak in the beauty of our displays, whether it'd be the range of homewares, wall art, gifts and indoor plants, or the beauty of nature we like to play with creating stunning displays, imitating what you could achieve in your own garden.
A little of Acorn History
Acorn Garden Centre has been trading at Point Clare since 1975. The large Barn-style building has an interesting past, originally built and used as a plasterboard factory. In the 70’s the building was converted and used as an art and gift gallery with some plants being grown on site and sold as well. The closure of the gallery made way for a quaint plant nursery and Acorn was born. There’s even been a fully equipped aquarium department, with over 40 fish tanks, featuring more than one hundred species of temperate and tropical fish. Over the years just like a growing tree Acorn became larger, spreading its branches and settling its roots deep in the local community.
In 2008 new owners brought fresh ideas, high standards and progress to the nursery, rekindling the interest of local gardeners. The re-introduction of the Gift Gallery with its quirky and well presented displays has seen it become a destination of its own right. The owners and staff settled in quickly and have become greatly valued amongst the loyal patrons.
In 2011 Acorn won a national online competition and was voted Austraflora Retail Garden Centre of the Year. In 2012 PlantsPlus recognized Acorn with the following awards: Highest Greenlife Sales Growth NSW and Highest Overall Growth NSW, a fantastic achievement within the 27 members of the NSW PlantsPlus group. Most recently in 2013 Acorn was placed in the top three finalists at the PlantsPlus Garden Centre of the Year NSW Awards Gala Event.
Acorn has been servicing the Central Coast with plants, advice and garden supplies for over 40 years. It is an award winning business, loved by many local gardeners. We invite you to visit us and enjoy the garden centre.
