About

The Nursery

P. R. Nursery, where all the plants are grown, is located in Far North Queensland in the Atherton Tablelands (Cairns Highlands) and is specialised in succulents and other drought hardy plants.

All plants are grown in the open with minimal (15-50%) or no shade at all.

This produces hardy plants with a good survival rate when transplanted.

The high percentage of repeat customers attests to this.

There is a good selection of interesting plants in small numbers; therefore you will find a regular change of available plants on this web site.

Plants are supplied as bare rooted plants mainly inside Australia as quarantine restrictions make it increasingly difficult to import and export plants. Bare rooting also reduces the frieght cost.

Plants are grown individually in 60mm square pots with no shade or some with 18-50% shade; which is not much in the tropics.This produces a pretty hardy plant with a good root system.

There are many other plants and larger sizes available. Please enquire for prices and postage if you are interested or have any other queries.

Plants may be purchased in three ways:

  1. Through this website
    Plants will be sent bare rooted by mail and can be paid for by money order, pay pal or direct bank deposit.
