Wholesale and retail indigenous plant nursery

Except for public holidays, our nursery is open for sales to the general public at 308 Hull Road, Mooroolbark, Victoria 3138 on:

  • Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays between 10am to 2pm, and
  • Sundays between 10am to 2pm.

Candlebark employs part-time specialist horticulturalists and propagators to teach and mentor our volunteers, as well as managing the plant propagation process from start to finish. We collect seed and cuttings from throughout the Yarra Ranges, Maroondah,  Manningham and surrounding council areas, with land manager consent and all statutory approvals and permits.

We specialise in growing to order for revegetation and environmental education programs, native landscaping projects, wildlife habitat creation and restoration, as well as supplying home gardeners. We also supply free and discounted plants to our many dedicated volunteers and corporate sponsors.

As some of the plants we grow are hard to source or difficult to grow, it is best to place your orders well in advance of when you expect to plant them. Seed and propagule collection happens mostly in late spring, throughout summer and in early autumn, then grown until ready for planting the following autumn and winter. We are also happy to provide quotes to support grant and funding applications for groups undertaking ecological restoration, residential development and local infrastructure projects.

We encourage and support local businesses, landscapers, not-for-profit organisations, bushland management groups, schools and other educational facilities who support our goals and objectives to become members of our incorporated association.  All financial members can order or buy our plants at discounted prices. Members and public authorities with a current ABN who place annual orders of more than 5,000 plants may be eligible for further discounts. Please contact us via email or on 0494 888 804 during business hours to discuss your plant needs.
