Since 1971

Plant Growers Australia Pty Ltd (PGA) an industry accredited, innovative wholesale nursery occupying 12 acres approximately 40 km east of Melbourne, where it has been operating since 1971 and produces over 1 million plants to the garden and landscape industry annually.

PGA new varieties

PGA is well known for its regular introduction of new and interesting varieties. Bringing new plants to the gardening public has always been an important part of the business. Throughout the history of the company well trialled, new and exciting plants have been released. Many of these have been carefully selected and imported through our AQIS approved Quarantine facility, from other parts of the world which have similar growing conditions of heat and low water tolerance.

20 years of breeding

Plant breeding has also been a focus of the nursery for more than 20 years. Dedicated facilities now allow us to use the best genetics from Australia and around the world to develop superior, great performing garden plants. Varieties like the Lavender Ruffles and Gaura Passionate series have since been exported to the world and now have international success.

Passion

Driven by a passion and enthusiasm, our simple vision of bringing quality plants to inspire interest and success is the cornerstone of our business. Commitment in sourcing, developing, trialling, marketing and production ensures our key goal is met.

Availability

At PGA we believe that availability, information and support for our plants are essential. This is done on many levels from our in house designed labels, POS and advertising to the internet and VIP club. We have dedicated sales staff, ensuring a high level of communication and service to our large network of retail outlets.

Innovation

Innovation is an important company philosophy. Although PGA has been operating from the same site for over 35 years it has continually evolved and developed, embracing new concepts and ideas to aid in growing the best possible plants in the most efficient ways.

Propagation

Over 95% of plants are actually propagated on site. Being able to have total quality control over our plant production meant the investment in a state of the art propagation facility in 2004. The success of this has now led PGA to provide other wholesale growers with young plants for their own production.

300 Varieties

PGA’s product range of over 300 varieties, both native and exotic, is constantly evolving and is targeted at providing well presented, high quality and successful plants for the enjoyment of, both the home gardener and landscaper alike.
