So where are you?

Lush Plants Plant Nursery is located just south of Bundaberg, in one of the most beautiful regions of Australia, we are at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, in a area famous for sea turtles and in an area where there are still large areas of native forest and protected wildlife.  We believe we live in a beautiful environment, surrounded in bush but not too far from the ocean! Our climate is fantastic, with a pronounced wet season and mild winters.  We operate as an online mail-order plant nursery and we do not have a retail nursery.

Our online garden nursery is situated on 160 acres of natural bush land –  most of the land is dedicated to preserving our enviroment and giving our wildlife the home they so rightfully deserve.  We truely appreciate the plant life & wild life around us and the small contributions we can make to protecting and greening our world. There’s nothing better than waking up with the Kookaburra’s!

We grow our plants with lots of care and attention and each plant is individually prepared for transport. All plants are soaked in seaweed solution before before being wrapped in paper (also soaked in seaweed solution to nourish them during their journey). 

The plants are then wrapped to keep the moisture in & securely packaged in cardboard boxes. We use a LOT of sticky tape to keep them nicely stuck, so our plants don't move an inch! Some of our boxes of packed plantsSorry if they are a bit difficult to get out of the boxes, but we figured that's better then opening a box and finding plants broken, roots damaged etc!

How was Lush Plants Australia started?

Lush Plants Plant Nursery was born in January 2013, a family business run by Dan & Elle Meager, they gained a wealth of experience growing organic plants for their many happy customers since they began with their first nursery in 2009.  We are delighted to have taken over the Lush Plants name in August 2016 and we look forward to continuing a business producing quality plants and great customer service. As new nursery owners, we both have green thumbs and a life long interest in the natural environment and growing our own food and plants. Adriaan worked for many years overseas growing commercial food crops, while I have green blood (well apparently), I come from a family line who just love to garden and I am passionate about adding edibles and incredibles to our online shop.  We have a special interest in rare plants, medicinal plants and pitaya (dragon fruit).  We will be extending our plant varieties in the near future.  So keep checking back.  Our online garden nursery is a convenient way to buy plants online and have them delivered to your door!
