Frequently Asked Questions
How do I buy plants from you?
You can order on-line or by phone and pick up after confirmation of your order.

You can also call us on 0458 38 1628 to confirm when walk in sales are available.

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.

Please check out our catalogue for more details and inquiries about availability.

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.

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 realΒ  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.

My garlic πŸ§„ is coming up !!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜

Its Sunday again already, and we are open 9am-12 noon.
Have 5 Candle nut (Aleurites moluccana) trees available. The cooked nuts well known and eaten in tropical countries. We have them in larger (6 litre) stock. $55 each. Not sure how they will go in Geraldton, as they are tropical plants and will need irrigation during summer to survive. I don't imagine they would get that big here due to the dry climate. They may even submit to the hot summer days but until we try we won't know. They are growing in Perth but I don't know of any in the Geraldton area. They grow really quickly and according to one website can live to 120 year old in Brisbane. trusttrees.org.au/tree/QLD/Brisbane/Brisbane_City_Botanic_Gardens_Alice_Street_17

Looking great Julie πŸ’•

Julie do you have any KP mangoes

Open 9am -12 noon Sunday. This week we are releasing some smaller Kensington Pride mango seedlings for those that wish to grow them larger or graft them. These grow relatively true to form and are the most cold tolerant variety for this area. They will fruit usually within four year if left ungrafted. $14.30 each
And 5 patchouli plants available. ($20 each)
If you yet to try you hand at Mango grafting, here is an excellent WA ag note on how to do it. www.agric.wa.gov.au/mangoes/propagating-mangoes

A couple more photos of the week's rendering on the strawbale teaching building.. Thankyou to Brooke and Nina for a great couple of days!
