Our approach to revegetation

We do not ‘force-feed’

Our plants are hand-reared and grown outdoors in our local climate in a sustainable way.  We do not ‘force-feed’ in order to accelerate a plant’s growth and appearance for sale (as some the bulk suppliers in the market place do) – this often produces top heavy growth with no substantial root system to sustain the plant once it leaves it’s cosseted indoor environment and makes it’s way into your garden.  Neither do we speed up growth through the use of artificial daylight – we just let nature do what it does best.

We produce high quality plants suited to our local conditions

Many customers are surprised and disappointed when plants they bought at ‘big box’ retailers fail to thrive and even collapse.  We may charge slightly higher prices in some cases, but we produce high quality plants suited to our local conditions, and we stand behind what we sell.

We grow them strong and durable

We don’t grow what’s in ‘fashion’ ; we grow strong and durable plants that are genetically suited to our environment, that will stand the test of time.

Root-trainers are specially designed to produce vertical roots

We grow our revegetation-grade plants in Tinus root-trainers.  The root-trainer is specially devised to produce plants with a deep root system and prevents spiralling of roots which can occur in pots and bags by channelling the roots vertically.  They are air pruned at the base.

This system enables us grow crops of plants on a large scale using less physical space in the nursery, making these a much more affordable option for mass planting.

Consistently low mortality rate

Plants produced in this way are healthy and hardy, with a sturdy, sizeable root mass that will support strong foliage growth.  They have a consistently low mortality rate  in what can sometimes be harsh planting environments (such as bare ground, cold or very windy sites).

We specialise in:
  • eco-sourcing

  • growing from seed (including yours)

  • supplying plants for small and large gardens, lifestyle blocks, farms and bare land

  • helping with planning your planting

  • pre-and-post sales assistance
