Bushland Flora Nursery, established 1989

  • 7cm, 14cm and 20cm pot GENERAL NATIVES and PBR lines

Bushland Flora is a major supplier of quality Australian plants. We provide a comprehensive range of Victorian indigenous and general Australian plant lines in cell trays, forestry tubes, 70mm premium tubes, the new biodegradable peat tubes and 14cm & 20cm pots. 

Bushland Flora operates from 2 nursery sites in the Yarra Valley, east of Melbourne.  This includes a specialised propogation and tubestock nursery in Mount Evelyn and an advanced stock growing site in Wandin. 

Bushland Flora was first established in 1989 by Ian Shimmen and over the years has developed into a leading wholesale native nursery.  In 2020 Ian decided it was time to take a step back from the day to day operations of the business to focus on the development of the Bush Magik range of plants. After very careful consideration over many months the business was sold to Yarra View Nursery, another very well established nursery in the east of Melbourne.

While the 2 businesses will continue to trade separately, the coming together provides for strength in diversity of product range, production expertise, logistics and commercial management.  Now with a combined 30 acres of production and over 140 employees, we look forward to continued growth and expansion.

Ian Shimmen will continue to work closely with the Bushland and Yarra View team providing mentoring and consulting support, while developing his range of premium selected natives.

Bushland Flora supplies all types of revegetation work, from roadside plantings, council reserves, and golf courses and have supplied plants for projects such as City Link, Western Ring Road, Eastern Freeway, Melbourne Docklands, Melbourne Zoo and the botanical gardens at Melbourne, Cranbourne and Geelong.

Bushland Flora also supply high quality stock to the retail sector in 70mm, 140mm and 200mm pots and have stands at all the major Melbourne Plant Markets. We have a spec van operating in the metro regions and limited regional areas on Mondays and Tuesdays each week and we provide a delivery service throughout the Melbourne metropolitan area.
