Bayside Community Nursery: Closed until April 2020

While our team work year round, the Bayside Community Nursery is open seasonably for sales from April to October in line with the planting season.

Nursery staff and volunteers are currently busy propagating a wide variety of indigenous plants for next year’s sales period.

However, you can make a wholesale pre-order.

Our Bayside Community Nursery grows and supplies a wide range of beautiful Bayside Indigenous species for our parks, inland and coastal bushlands, as well as for public sale.

This environmental hub offers great service and something for the whole family.

Public sales opening times

The nursery is closed for the summer and will be reopening in April 2020.

The Nursery will be restocked over the summer with a range of indigenous plant species perfect for your garden or landscape, in forestry tube 6inch pot and 200mm pot. See the menu to the right-hand side for species lists.

We look forward to seeing you at the Nursery in April.

Volunteering opportunities

About the Community Nursery

The nursery opened in 1978 with the aim to protect Bayside's biodiversity by growing plants from local seed stock and through raising awareness and appreciation of Bayside's indigenous flora in public and private landscapes.

It exists to benefit the community of Bayside and to protect and enhance Bayside’s biodiversity and prevent local flora extinction through increasing awareness, appreciation and the use of Bayside’s indigenous flora in public and private landscapes. Supported by volunteers, the nursery propagates, produces and sells high-quality indigenous plants of local provenance, which are otherwise unavailable.

Each year, we grow and supply around 100,000 indigenous plants, grasses and trees for planting in our parks, inland and coastal bushland reserves. The nursery sells stock to the local golf courses and is open to all members of the public.
