Growing Friends' Nursery Plant Sales

'Take your Botanic Gardens home with you'

Find a great range of native, exotic plants, rare, hard-to-find and endangered plants, at the Growing Friends' Nurseries.

The plants are propagated by the Growing Friends’ volunteers from the living collections in The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan and The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah. 

Plants prices start from $4.50 for tubestock and can be purchased from the Growing Friends' Nurseries in The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and The Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan.

See what is propagated by browsing the Growing Friends' plant list. Please be aware that not all plants listed will be available for sale all through the year. If you are particularly interested in a plant, please ask the friendly volunteers in the nursery for more information. 

Did you know...? Foundation & Friends’ members receive a discount of 20% or more. Simply show your membership card at the nursery. You can join at the nursery or by registering online.

You can help to support the conservation efforts of the Botanic Gardens by purchasing rare and endangered plants from the Growing Friends' Nurseries. Prostanthera densa (see photo) from Nelson Bay is just one example often available for sale.
