Bushland flora is one of our fabulous plant sponsors. A specialist in growing Australian native plants since 1989. Set in the hills of Mt Evelyn on the outskirts of Melbourne this nursery has a retail outlet, huge growing area, and an exciting array of stock plants. Manager Ian Shimmen has combined his vast knowledge of Australian plants with his lengthy nursery experience to produce a wide variety of plants, not just the home gardener but for many major public plantings too.
Here are the plants that BushlandFlora has supplied for place.grow.shift.
Together with Peter Goldup, Ian has developed the ‘Bush Magik’ plant range. The ‘Bush Magik’ range tick all the boxes with a range that excels in interesting foliage, lengthy flowering times and tough plants. If you haven’t seen the popular Acacia Lime Magik or Acacia Mini Cog planted in a garden near you then you haven’t been out enough, my personal favourite is the Casuarina Shagpile.
