Hidden behind our steel façade is our huge plant nursery, one of the biggest in Melbourne. We have a huge range plants in stock and they are all meticulously sorted so you can find what you need quickly and easily. All benches are sorted in alphabetical order to make life easy for the keen gardener, and in easy-to-use sections to make it easy for the novice. Plants are grouped into Small, Medium and Tall Shrubs, Trees, Ground Covers and Climbers and Screening Plants.
We have continually expanded our Produce Gardening range over the last few years, and you’ll be amazed at the variety you will find now. There’s nothing better than chomping down on some freshly grown, organic produce, and we are here to help you with everything edible. Herbs, vegies, fruit and citrus trees, berries, vines… you name it! If it’s available in Melbourne, it’s in our Produce Section. We even have a Bushfoods section showcasing some indigenous tasty delights. Our awesome display gardens not only provide ideas and inspiration, but show that we can grow the plants just as well as we sell them! You’ll be amazed at how many edible plants are also great as ornamentals, ask our staff to show you next time you are in.
BAAG Information Stand
The info stand is the hub of our nursery. All enquiries regarding plants, pests, diseases, gardening advice and customer plant orders are channelled through this point. Although staff are not always seated within the info stand one press of the service button located at the front of the stand will bring a quick response. You’ll also find heaps of info on classes, consultancies, community events and much more on our large display boards. There are also loads of brochures and other info you can take away with you. We have also set up a Large Screen TV for customers to use which displays loads of gardening info from our website. Next time you are in, grab the mouse and take it for a spin.
More popular than ever before, water features in the garden require a little extra care. The right balance of aquatic plants and fish can make a big difference to how well your pond keeps. Visit us for the right advice on the numbers and types of pond plants needed and how to care for them. We stock a wide variety of aquatic plants, both native and exotic species.
These are plants especially selected to attract native wildlife to your garden. Enjoy the magic of birds and butterflies as they flit through in search of nectar or seeds; or choose attractive grasses to grow around your pond to shelter frogs in search of a home. Lizards will keep your pest insects under control when they take up residence amongst your plants. Our staff can help you select the right mix of trees and shrubs to suit any garden size.
Ferns, Indoor Plants and Shade Plants
Not just for the side of the house where nothing else will grow, ferns provide a cool oasis, perfect for outside sitting
areas. We have ferns that are suited for pots or for planting; and you can rest assured that are the ferns have been cultivated or harvested under strict environmental controls. Bulleen Art & Garden will never stock ferns taken illegally from their habitat. We also have a huge range of indoor and shade loving plants.
Flower and Vegie Seedlings
As all gardeners know, seedlings are the cheapest and easiest way to get your flowers and vegetables up and growing. More certain than seeds, which all have a degree of variability, by planting seedlings, you are sure of what you are growing. We stock a huge range of vegetable, herb and flower seedlings, both in the traditional punnet size; or, for the larger garden, the mega punnet is even more value for money.
Sometimes showing is far easier than telling. We have many types of display gardens set up throughout the nursery, including Produce Gardens, Cacti and Succulents, Lawn Alternatives, Indigenous Plants, Heat Loving Plants, The Edible Food Forest and much more.
