We are a boutique mail-order nursery situated in the beautiful Central Highlands of Victoria. We offer a wide range of perennials, seeds, bulbs and shrubs throughout the year. Our particular interests are border perennials, plants for prairie gardens and varieties for cut-flowers. We grow wide ranges of Dahlias, Phlox, Dianthus and Lilium as well as a comprehensive selection of grasses. Our two main seasons are Spring and Autumn but we are always adding new stock.

We hope you enjoy browsing through our range.
