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 aiming to grow 2.5 million tubes, which will consist of over 1000 different varieties of native and exotic trees, shrubs, grasses 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.
Our growing facility consists of:
6000 sq metres of automated climate controlled green house’s.
4500 sq metres of automated shade house’s.
3000 sq metres of open growing space.
10,000 sq metres of in ground mother stock.
We aim to supply our customers with quality plants and great service, which ultimately makes us the first choice when purchasing plants in the future. We will also supply traditional varieties as well as exciting new varieties, each year to ensure that our customers remain leaders within the industry.
We aim to educate and develop our staff through teamwork and individual ownership of their jobs. This will not only benefit Mansfield’s Propagation Nursery, but also our staff and customers, who will gain the knowledge and experience to grow with us.
Mansfield’s have been in business for over 60 years and are trusted within the industry because of the strong values we live by. Our values of Loyalty, Excellence, Innovation, Openness, Inclusion, Learning and Enjoyment are what our staff, customers and suppliers receive every day.
To be the ‘Growers Grower’, supplying quality tube stock throughout Australia.
