Frequently Asked Questions
How do I buy plants from you?

You can buy direct from our propagation nursery during seasonal walk-in sales open hours, by arranging a time outside of open hours by calling us on 045 38 1628 or by using our on-line Store page.

We sometimes are able to attend and sell our plants at local markets.

Do you sell plants to interstate and overseas customers?
No, sorry we only sell plants for our own Geraldton and Midwest region of Western Australia.

When will you next get.....?
We sell only what we grow ourselves, and do not stock/sell plants from other nurseries.

We grow seasonally and do our best to provide a large range of plants.

Our largest number of plants is generally ready to coincide with the arrival of our winter rains.

Do you sell citrus, avocado and mangoes?
While we grow and sell a good range of fruit trees including Figs, Brazilian Cherries, Pomegranates, Tropical Guavas and Grapes but we do not grow and sell avocados, apples or nut trees like almonds.
Do you sell palms?
Sorry we don’t grow and sell palms (except Jelly Palms)

We can however provide you with other tree and plant options which may suit your property and garden.

Do you sell Fertiliser?
No but we can recommend options for you which we are familiar with, and provide you with some guidance on mulching and composting etc, when you visit us.
Do you sell Vege Seedlings?

Sometimes we have the capacity to offer vegetable and herb seedlings grown from our own heirloom seeds.

Please call on 0458 38 1628 in regards to availability or check out the Seedling Tab on our Store Page.

Reasons to buy our plants
Locally Owned
Since 1989, we have been growing to order and selling plants, in particular local natives and permaculture plants as a locally owned and operated independent propagation nursery.
Grown with Care
We hand sow all our seeds and hand weed all our plants and use integrated pest management within the nursery.

Our seedlings are grown in 50x50x125mm tall ‘forest tubes’ produce air-pruned long linear root systems that lead to high planting success rates.

Our advanced plants are raised in white bags which prevent root spiraling and improve their recovery when planted.

All our plants are sun and wind hardened before sale.

We use rainwater to raise our seedlings but switch to scheme water as they grow and are hardened. This allows the plants to adapt to the water quality in our region.

We only sell our seedlings when they are big enough to handle the real  world with good root growth and vigour.

Grown to Order

We can grow to order. We need to have orders placed in December or January.

Our tube stock is raised during summer ready for sale in autumn and winter to coincide with our regions seasonal rainfall periods.

Call us on 9938 1628 for more information on contract orders.

Fair Price and Trusted Advice
We produce quality plants priced for value and good growth. Prices are listed on our stocklist, and vary according to the size and cost of propagation.

As a not-for-profit we reinvest funds from plant sales in local employment, the development of our demonstration farm, implementation of our conservation activities and education.

Our nursery provides students, trainees and volunteers with valuable working experience in plant propagation.

We have years of experience and pass that experience onto our customers when they choose to buy plants from us.

If you are unsure of your garden needs, bring along a rough plan and we can recommend plants which will suit your needs.
