Our Plant Selection

Our range is about personally growing locally sourced native seed species that are strong and thrive into the future to restore, protect and create natural habitats. Our plants have established strong root systems, are grown in various planter bag and root bag sizes and are ready for planting.

The Nursery

We may be the smallest nursery in the local market, at just 30,000 plants, but this gives us the ability to connect plants to customers in a personal way.

This also gives us the unique ability to always be the most cost-effective nursery in town. Its low input, low impact personal farming in low numbers.

Many places are not based upon the full story.  The full story is one of environment, resource, sustainability, diversity and return.  Our full story is one of exactly this and is applied to our business, home and property. After all, it’s our own business, home, and nursery that we personally built and have pride in.
