This months ‘nursery’ is a little different in that Native Growth Holdings isn’t a nursery in itself but it does own and operate two nurseries and also other various businesses to do with Australian Native Plants.
From their website
We propagate and provide access to the finest quality and an extensive range of indigenous flora, in order to encourage all Australians to plant the hardy, environmentally sound plant life that is native to the land, and that has evolved specifically for our climates and conditions over millions of years.
Native Growth Holdings started as a nursery in Mildura called Mildura Native Nursery. It was started by Tony & Tim Langdon and this nursery still operate today as part of the Native Growth Holdings group. They also operate a nursery in the Horsham area of Victoria, in Wimmera.
The benefits to this group are that they have both a fantastic nursery presence but also a brilliant website. On their website they have a section called ‘Find a plant’ and this allows you to try and search for a plant that fits your specific needs and desires. It even lets you suggest a price range which is very helpful when determining what plants to choose.
If you can’t make it to one of their nurseries you can order plants through their online shop. A flat delivery fee of $14.95 for up to 20kg of delivery’s makes this relatively viable for most people and their range is great. They sell seeds, pot stock, tube stock, books to help you in your gardening endeavours and much much more.
Native Growth Holdings also provides a consultation service throughout Victoria. They employ a large range of very talented garden specialists and can definitely help you solve any problems you may be facing in your garden. They even offer home visits throughout metropolitan, regional and rural Victoria. I have been unable to ascertain if there is a fee for this or not. I would imagine there is but some companies do provide this service free of charge.
I basically stumbled across their website and I have to say, it really has impressed me so I definitely recommend that you check it out for yourself. Go to http://www.nativegrowth.com.au and have a look around. Other contact details are listed on their website.
