Windmill Outback Nursery
I specialize mostly in plants native to Australia including Eucalyptus species as well as a blueberry variety developed in Australia that has a shelf life of 6 weeks plus. We are 1 of the 3 Australia specialist nurseries in the United States.
With the downturn of the economy, I branched out into fruits, nuts and vegetables. The blackberries and blueberries have been in production for a long time while the apple and peach orchard was established 2 years ago.
The black walnuts are now producing and I collect additional nuts from other private locations in Louisa County. With the current disease affecting native black walnut trees and killing them, I must abide by the state quarantine and not collect from other affected counties. My property at last inspection was clear of infection and hopefully will stay that way.
Pecan trees are still in the juvenile stage and will be many years before nut production starts. (If you have pecan trees and want to get rid of the nuts, contact me!)
I was advised fresh tomatoes were needed during the winter months so I set up production to grow cherry tomatoes. These are grown in 20 gal containers on a trellis system which helps support the aggressive vines. The first group grown has been setting very tasty tomatoes, so I am working to expand production during the winter months and trial several different varieties of tomato.
Plans are in the works for this fall and will include an Australian blue pumpkin variety, ornamental corn and seedless yellow watermelon.
I also keep busy doing metal fabrication of custom home and garden art and attend many art/craft shows throughout Virginia. You can see some examples at http://www.expertmetalworks.com.
