What We Do
We propagate and grow deciduous, evergreen, rare and ancient trees and shrub species mainly from the Southern Hemisphere: Africa, New Zealand, Tasmania, South America and Australia. We also specialise in Quercus, or oaks from all over the world.
We have different sizes of pots, but focus on the 20cm RocketPot (8L) which air prunes the roots to prevent knotting and girdling. Trees are 1-2m tall.
Moreover, we grow trees for farms, botanic gardens and large properties as well as suburban gardeners.

Because out plants are grown in air-prune pots in the nursery they establish really well.
- root formation is sound
- plants are of optimum size for the species
- plants are selected for our climate and soils
- these plants are long lived
- the right tree provides shade and fire protection

Our Favourite Trees and shrubs
Quercus suber, cork oak
This tree is perfect for dry, sand country with a mediterranean climate. Superb examples exist in the Bayside suburbs in Melbourne. Will tolerate rainfall down to around 350mm p.a., but will be a small tree only to around 5m in those locations.
Nothofagus alpina, Rauli beech
A sublime beech for cool, montane areas of NZ or SE Australia and Tasmania. A quick grower, this deciduous tree has lovely crenate, ribbed leaves. Be sure to choose a site sloping south or east on the margins of its range with rainfall at least 850mm p.a. or irrigation, and above 600m for SE Australia.
