The Experts in Local Plants

We’re a big believer in supporting local. That’s why, at our Geelong and Colac nurseries, we specialise in plants local to the Bellarine and Otway regions.

As well as our Bellarine and Otway Indigenous stock, we’ve also got a huge range of beautiful Australian native and exotic plants on offer.

Plus, we’re the only nursery in the region to grow ALL of our stock on-site. So, you’ll know that you’re getting the high-quality plants.

No Order Is Too Big or Too Small

Whatever your needs, we promise that you’ll find friendly service and competitive prices.

As a wholesale nursery, we complete large contracts for council planting, tree guards and other business needs.

If you’re looking for your own garden, we’re open to the public as a retail nursery during the week.

Plus, we specialise in farm, windbreak, woodlot and re-vegetation plants.
