About the nursery

COVID-19 Update

The nursery will be closed to the public until September 30, pending further changes to public health orders. This decision has been made in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
In the meantime, feel free to send us an email if you have any questions - we are on hand for advice as always.

Renovation Update

The greenhouses are up and we have our first plants in as we continue to fit out the interior. They are slightly larger than our previous houses and the extra capacity has us all eager to fill them to the brim.

Resurfacing works began on July 5. The work will be done in three stages, with the bottom half of the site the first area to be resurfaced. Access within the nursery will be limited to maintain the safety of our customers. We will be operating with limited stock until the works are completed, though we hope to be ready for a bumper spring!

The renovation work has been scheduled to minimise disruption to nursery operations, but has also been impacted by the current public health orders and some disruption is inevitable. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to these transformative works being completed.

Indigenous Plants

The nursery promotes the use of indigenous plant species throughout the Eastern Suburbs.

Indigenous plant species are those plants found within the Randwick local government area and throughout the Eastern Suburbs before European settlement. The term ''local provenance'' is applied to these species.

Planting indigenous plants in council's parks, reserves and private gardens provides habitat for native bird and insect species and assists in the conservation of our local flora and fauna. The plants have a higher survival rate as they have evolved to cope with local soil and climatic conditions.

Indigenous plants are identified in the nursery by a blue tag.

Non-indigenous plants

Council's community nursery also grows a range of native plants from throughout Australia and a selection of hardy exotic species.  Native, non-indigenous species are identified by a yellow tag and exotic species are identified by an orange tag.

These plant species have been selected because they are attractive and tolerate the local conditions.
