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 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.

It is our last open Sunday this season. We will open again at the end of Autumn next year (April). All sales after this Sunday 25th Sept will be by appointment. Mb Johnny: 0458381628.I will still be posting on any plant stock during spring and summer as it becomes available.
Our raw honey will continue to be available so just phone first to pick up.I’m bringing out a couple unusual things that I have Grafted. They are both deciduous and about to burst with new spring/summer growth.
1. AFRICAN MARULA trees - these are $99 each. You will need both Male and Female trees to produce fruit. (12 left)
2. KING SHATOOT WHITE MULBERRY - $88 each. Only need one, they are an amazing edible feature tree. Ideal to plant on the northside of a building as a lawn or garden centre piece.  (1 only)We also have Monto Vetiver Grass available in tubes. $6.60 each. This is a fast growing grass that gets to 2m+ tall. It makes an great non competitive windbreak around vege gardens and orchards. Once you have a stock plant growing, they can be multiplied easily by division. They are a great mulch source if you want to regularly cut them back.
Last week’s  specials are still available. See our last post.Have a great day!
