Australia enjoys an astonishing range of unusual and beautiful Australian native garden plants. The Australian native garden gathered momentum, becoming very popular in the 1950s and 1960s, but because of a lack of understanding and planning, many of these gardens grew too big, thus bringing down their popularity for a time. Now with better design and an amazing range of exciting new and easily manageable cultivars, anyone can build an Australian native garden.
From native Australian succulents to native Australian hedges, we continue to add superior quality and varieties of native Australian plants for the garden. There are more and more new, beautiful and manageable native garden plants becoming available every day.

Being made up of hardy native garden plants, this garden style is a very low-maintenance garden. Natives generally require low phosphorous fertiliser as the Australian soil has very little phosphorous in it. Otherwise, natives will thrive in their native soil. Prune plants as you see fit. Some prefer a neat garden, others enjoy ruggedness, it’s up to you!
