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.
