COVID-19 Update

We encourage wearing face masks if you're unable to maintain 1.5 metres physical distance from others.

We will be limiting contact on-site for the safety of customers and staff. Please get in touch in advance if you have any questions. We are around for plant advice as always via phone or email. Our Saturday open days have been temporarily postponed in an effort to reduce the spread of Covid. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and will re-commence as soon as possible.

Pot Recycling

The nursery happily takes back black plastic pots in our production sizes – squat tubes and tall tubes and 140mm, 200mm and 300mm pots. Returned pots are washed and reused. Please recycle other pots via one of the ‘Plastic Smart’ PP5 Recycle Bins at Flower Power Mascot or Flower Power Enfield. Plant labels can also be left in the bins. The scheme has been set up by Garden City Plastics, a pot manufacturer, label maker Norwood Industries and Polymer Processors, a recycling facility. The aim is to create a national closed-loop recycling system to reduce waste and secure supply into the future.

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.
