Our frontal display outside the nursery features some of our very best bargains and some of the most exciting things we have on offer. Here you’ll find our ‘Gardens for Everyone’ promotion. This runs all year round with offers like small cottage plants, border plants or ground covers that other nurseries might sell for $10 -12, even up to $14-15, but we sell for around $7. That includes lots of things like Salvias and Carnations, etc.
You’ll also find Succulents here and Jade plants. Lots of things that we grow ourselves or that we got in cheap on special deals. There’s a lot out front and it’s pretty big. So big, people think it’s the whole nursery, but there’s so much more to see once you step inside.
You can choose something small and cheap to get your started or if you need something already big and well-established, we can supply that too.
Once you choose your preferred Box, if you want 20, 30 or even 50 of them don’t worry, we stock hundreds if not thousands of them to make sure we always have what our customers want!
In the Edibles section of our nursery you will find an enormous variety of edible plants including herbs and plants that produce fruits. From Olives Trees to Tomato Plants and Fig Trees to a whole range of Citrus Trees including Oranges, Lemons, & Limes, as well as Stone Fruit Trees such as Peaches, Plums & Cherries and of course Apple & Pear Trees too.
Cool Climate Tropical Zone
Our Cottage Garden section features a wide variety of annuals and perennials that will flower profusely and give you that delightful, colourful cottage garden you seek.
If you want colour all year round, not just flowers that bloom only for a short-time each year, then choose from our range of plants with coloured foliage, like Chalk Sticks for example which have a lovely silver blue foliage or Cordylines which look like small colourful palm trees or Flaxes that come in various shades.
Ground covers are growing in popularity as an alternative to lawns as people are seeking to avoid having to mow. We propagate a lot of the ground covers ourselves. They are low maintenance, look great and work well to fill in between pavers or pathways as a “no-mowing” alternative to grass.
Don’t miss our Overflow Area. This is where we display some of the best bargains we have. Sometimes we find a great deal on plants and we might buy 500 or 1000 of them. Or if we think the industry is going to run short on something for an upcoming season we buy up big to make sure our customers don’t miss out.
When we don’t have room for all these extra special bargains, this is where we put them.
But here you will also find plants that are not strictly Australian Natives, like Leucadendron which is actually from South Africa, a land with a similar climate to ours. So it’s very popular in Australian Native gardens because its colour works well with our local plants.
Many of these are great for an entrance area because they grow into a lovely ball on a stick with beautiful Maple leaves. Here you’ll also find the very popular Crepe Myrtles.
Our famous “bare-rooted” area is where we sell plants out of their pots with their roots exposed and free of soil. We can only do this with plants during their dormant stage so it only happens for a limited time each year.
Plants we sell bare-rooted include fruit trees such as citrus, apple and pear, a variety of roses, English Box and many ornamental trees such as Weeping Cherries and Japanese Maples.
With no soil or pot needed for bare-rooted plants they are cheap to transport and store so you can enjoy them for up to 75% off potted prices.
Our indoor plants section is packed with interesting and popular indoor plants. Whether you want just one to put in a little pot in the corner or to fill your whole house with them, here you will find all the popular favourites.
With 5 delivery vans working all day, every day to fulfill our customer’s online orders there are always plants leaving to be delivered all over Melbourne and Victoria.
Many customers choose to come collect their online orders themselves so this is where you can go to pick up your order. If you don’t know how, just ask one of our friendly, helpful staff.
