Blackheath Nursery

Nursery Seedlings Nursery Seedlings
The Blackheath Nursery was established in 1990 under the direction of Robin Corringham who was followed by David Coleby (1994-2005), then Kevin Bell (2005-2014), Sue Nicol (2014-2017) and Hugh Brougham (2017-2019).

The current manager is Paul Irwin.

The nursery consists of a glass-house with controlled irrigation and heated beds, a fully enclosed work-shed for plant preparation, housing a seed-bank and a shade house with capacity for storage of over 5,000 plants.

Blackheath is used for plant propagation but large orders may be collected there after prior arrangement with the nursery manager.


Retail Sales

We sell tubestock at just $3.50 each, native ferns at $4 each and a few advanced plants in larger pots from just $5. We attempt to keep our prices as low as possible to encourage the purchase of local native plants.

Our Plants

Our plants are raised either from seed or cuttings collected within the Greater Blue Mountains area.

Mountain Devil Mountain Devil (Lambertia formosa)  (Alan Page)
During a calendar year we generally have 120-140 species available with around 70-80 species at any one time depending on demand.

For over 20 years we have supplied quality local plants to Blue Mountains residents and others from neighbouring areas.

We undertake work for large landowners and landscapers, either collecting seed of local provenance or propagating from customer-supplied seed.

In the past we have fulfilled large contracts for the RTA at Soldiers Pinch, Mt. Victoria and Shell Corner, Katoomba, and on the Great Western Highway at Lawson and Wentworth Falls. Recently, we supplied 2,300 plants for the roof-top garden at the new Cultural Centre in Katoomba.

We regularly provide plants for the NPWS and Blue Mountains City Council for re-vegetation works and are always in demand by local landscapers for reliable, cheap plants.

We believe we have made a very significant contribution to the beautification of the Blue Mountains.

So, whether your needs are large or small, we can supply you with a large variety of quality plants, cheaply and guaranteed to grow, having been raised in the conditions in which they will live.

For enquiries, please contact the Nursery Manager, Paul Irwin.
