Mount Baldy Native Plant Nursery

We grow to order native species for projects, landholders and the general public.

For some large projects we will collect seed from native species that are growing onsite or nearby to ensure our planting stock have the resilience to survive and are from the same Regional Ecosystems (known as seeds from the right provenance). This method has been entrenched as best practice over 25 years within the industry in the Wet Tropics. To undertake this method seeds will need to be collected up to 12 months before any stock are planted therefore long term planning is essential.

Some native plant species are dispersed throughout the landscape by birds, flying foxes and gravity (down creeks and rivers). These species which are commonly represented across several Regional Ecosystems types therefore the provenance requirement is not so important. For example Black bean (Castanospermum australe) growing on the Barron River (160 km in length) can be found on the head waters and right along the river to the mouth. Their seeds are large and will float downstream and be dispersed large distances from where the seed tree is.

We do carry a selection of seedling stock from varying Regional Ecosystems including the crossover species mentioned in the above paragraph. We also carry a selection of lower growing species which are suitable for town blocks, under power lines or where size and height is an issue.
