Whether you have room for a food forest or simply a window box for herbs we supply a vast array of plants to grow and enjoy in your garden, as well as providing the knowledge and support to do so. The nursery is a place to relax, and take positive action towards creating a better world. Planting a beautiful, healthy and productive garden filled with food is one of the most creative and peaceful ways to sustain individual and planetary health.

The nursery’s horticultural selection includes native, indigenous and bushfood plants, fruit trees, shrubs, herbs and vegetable seedlings and stunning feature plants.  We can advise on which species are suitable for all types of gardens.

Nursery staff members are qualified in horticulture and permaculture and are passionate about sharing their knowledge in a way that is relevant and accessible to the home gardener.
