LOCAL NATIVE TREES AND SHRUBS FOR FARMS AND LANDSCAPING
We are a production nursery open to the general public, specializing in growing native trees and shrubs which come from the local area. Most of our plants are grown in forestry tubes making them ideal for windbreaks, re-vegetation, farm forestry and large scale landscaping. We provide a very wide range of common and unusual species endemic to the ACT and Southern Tablelands. Seed is sourced or collected locally with provenance upon request.
We grow our plants in 120mm forestry tubes as we have found this provides the greatest plant success rates for cost effectiveness. The forestry tubes are ribbed inside ensuring the roots grow downwards rather than circling the pot. Tubes are elevated from the ground on trays and open bottomed which allows the roots to be pruned by the air. This way the plants roots are positioned to grow down and outwards when planted out, ensuring a healthy root structure for their later life.
All our plants are grown in open air conditions and hardened by minimizing water and exposing them to frost. This makes them tough, ensuring they have the best chance of success. Our plants are all direct sown then thinned rather than transplanted. Using this method ensures they have undisturbed root systems and superior gene selections.
We also have a wide selection of native groundcovers and small shrubs in large supertubes, providing a economical option for garden plantings. The species available usually includes Grevilleas, Westringias,Protrantheras, Correas, Croweas, Hakeas, Boronias, Kangaroo paws, Saltbush and more. Call if you would like an up to date indication of available species.
Nursery is open only by appointment.
