We have two sites -
♠   Blackheath where only propagation work is done, and
♠   Lawson which is also used for propagation, plant storage and is open for public sales (see entry for times).

Contact our Nursery Manager, Sue Nicol, if you would like to buy plants, become a nursery volunteer, or just visit for a look.

We welcome all enquiries and our enthusiastic volunteers are always ready to help you make your choice.

Blackheath Nursery

Blackheath Nursery seedlings seedlings at Blackheath Nursery
The Blackheath Nursery was established in 1990 under the direction of Robin Corringham who was followed by David Coleby (1994-2005) and then Kevin Bell (2005-2014).

The current manager is Sue Nicol.

The nursery consists of a glass-house with controlled irrigation and heated beds, a fully enclosed work-shed for plant preparation, housing a seed-bank and a shade house with capacity for storage of over 5,000 plants.

It is used for plant propagation but large orders may be collected there after prior arrangement with the nursery manager.

Lawson Nursery

This facility was newly established in 2009 to propagate and grow large numbers of plants mostly for contract work but also offers public sales. The facility has a large, shaded area with controlled irrigation for storage of over 30,000 plants, a work facility and toilet.

This nursery is located in the Lawson Industrial Area on the corner of Park and Cascade Streets.   Here's a map

The nursery is open for public sales on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9am to noon during the spring, summer and autumn months but closes in winter.

Retail Sales

We sell tubestock at just $3 each and advanced plants in 140mm pots from just $5. We attempt to keep our prices as low as possible to encourage the purchase of local native plants.

Bulk orders and large contracts attract further discounts. Please contact the Nursery Manager, Sue Nicol to discuss your needs.

Weekly sales are at Lawson on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from August through to May (see the entry for location).

We attend the Lawson Magpie Markets at Lawson Public School on the Great Western Highway from 9am to 2pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month from August through November and February through May.

We are also at the Blackheath Community Markets at Blackheath Public School on the Great Western Highway from 9am to 1pm on the first Sunday of the month from August through May. At both these markets we offer a big variety of plants with many specials.

Gift Certificates

We can solve your dilemma in trying to find that perfect present for somebody special with one of our gift certificates to the value of $10, $20 or $50.

These are available and redeemable any time from our Lawson nursery, the Magpie and Blackheath Markets or by sending a cheque to PO Box 29, Wentworth Falls 2782 with a stamped self-addressed envelope and we will respond by return mail.

Our Plants

Our plants are raised either from seed or cuttings collected within the Greater Blue Mountains area.

During a calendar year we generally have 120-140 species available with around 70-80 species at any one time depending on demand.

For over 20 years we have supplied quality local plants to Blue Mountains residents and others from neighbouring areas.

Mountain Devil Mountain Devil   (Alan Page)

We undertake work for large landowners and landscapers, either collecting seed of local provenance or propagating from customer-supplied seed.

In the past we have fulfilled large contracts for the RTA at Soldiers Pinch, Mt. Victoria and Shell Corner, Katoomba, and on the Great Western Highway at Lawson and Wentworth Falls.

Recently, we supplied 2,300 plants for the roof-top garden at the new Cultural Centre in Katoomba.

We regularly provide plants for the NPWS and Blue Mountains City Council for re-vegetation works and are always in demand by local landscapers for reliable, cheap plants.

We believe we have made a very significant contribution to the beautification of the Blue Mountains.

So, whether your needs are large or small, we can supply you with quality plants in big variety, cheaply and guaranteed to grow, having been raised in the conditions in which they will live.

Donations of local identified seeds are most welcome as we expand our seed-bank.

Just note the location, time of the year and send to P.O. Box 29, Wentworth Falls 2782, bring to one of our nurseries or to one of our monthly meetings. It will be much appreciated.

For enquiries, please contact the Nursery Manager, Sue Nicol

Species List

From the list below we try to maintain stocks of each plant for at least part of the year but demand, the lack of suitable seed and the occasional propagation failure means that not all species are available at all times.

We can generally guarantee to have 70 -80 species in stock.

If the species you require is not listed, please contact us and we may be able to grow some especially for you. If you can provide seed that makes our task easier. We are always pleased to expand our seed-bank by donation of seeds from local plants if accompanied by a collection location and date.

Our plant list is constantly revised and we are always pleased to receive suggestions for new additions.
