1. We welcome empty plastic pots for recycling.
If you’ve got left over pots from your jobs, bring them to us! We’ve got a recycling program that makes good use of them. Save yourself a trip to the tip as well as the tip fees.

2. We deliver all over Melbourne including coastal areas.
For your convenience we’re happy to deliver plants and trees to site.

3. We have a resident fox named Michael J. She loves to watch the boys pot up.
Michael J is a mama fox who lives at Kilby. Last year she gave birth to three beautiful cubs – when there was no more work left to do, we’d be down at the creek watching them play. Tom named them Lindsey, Jamie and Megan.

3. We’re proud to be part of the 202020 Vision
We believe that the more trees we have in the environment, correctly planted, placed and cared for, will be one of the key factors in helping to absorb the ever growing stress large populations put on the areas we live in. That’s why we support the 202020 Vision.

4. We have a heritage listed River Red Gum on site
On our grounds, we have a beautiful 300 year old Eucalyptus camaldulensis that has been awarded a tree of significant merit by the Booroondara council. What a stunner! Ask us to view the tree next time you visit.
