Essence Food for the Soul is a gourmet offering focused on creating quality meals for high end retailers and their discerning clientele. At the heart of Essence are creative duo Jim and Mel who met working at a friends’ restaurant. Ten years following wedding celebrations at Portsea, they discovered their dream business just across the road.
This wonderful local Peninsula Garden Nursery can be found in Mornington at the iconic Tully’s Corner. We love visiting because Diaco’s staff have the time and the passion to chat with you, to offer valuable, practical advice for our gardening needs. Their team lives and breathes plants and gardening is their passion and when you want to talk to someone with the right knowledge they are up and about and within earshot. Spring is a time of miraculous transformation in the garden.
The Diaco’s Garden Nursery story began in 1949 when Antonio Diaco moved to Australia with his wife, four children, and a strong set of morals and values established while working in the fields of Southern Italy: Work Hard, Be Honest, Achieve.
