About Mansfield’s Propagation Nursery
Established in 1951, Mansfield’s Propagation Nursery is a 3rd generation family-run business, which was located in the inner suburbs of Melbourne. In 1999, the nursery was operating on 3 sites, a decision was then made to consolidate all 3 sites on to one. We decided to purchase 60 acres of land on the Mornington Peninsula, and build a state of the art purpose-built propagation facility.
The Skye site is located only 45 kms from Melbourne’s CBD. We consider ourselves Australia’s leading propagation nursery, winning consecutive awards from the Nursery and Garden Industry of Australia (NGIA); 2009 to 2012 Best Propagation Nursery, Best Large Production Nursery, Best Environmental Business and Best Training Organisation.
This year we are growing 4 million plants, which will consist of over 1000 different varieties of native and exotic trees, shrubs, grasses, succulents and perennials. Predominantly, we sell to wholesale nurseries, commercial landscapers and councils/governments across Australia.
We grow a mix of the traditional every day varieties commonly used in the industry in large volumes. We also work closely with plant breeders and developers, as well as plant marketing companies, both locally and internationally to bring new and exciting varieties to the Australian market.
