With an increase in urban renewal, Botanix has developed a large range of street trees for local government and commercial developments. The most suitable stock for such projects include many varieties of eucalyptus and other natives, exotic evergreen and deciduous trees, including ornamental pears, maples and crepe myrtles. Specialists in semi-advanced grafted gums, their Graftmasters™ range is also suitable for use as street trees. A full range of street tree selections can be found on their website.
Dedicated to producing healthy stock that will service a range of commercial projects, Botanix now irrigate their stock at the Carrum Downs site with 100% recycled water. As many streetscapes and developments utilise recycled water for irrigation, Botanix’s ensures this stock performs well under these conditions by acclimatising their plants. This process means there is less transplant shock when trees are employed in a project that irrigates with recycled water.
A trade-only nursery, Botanix supplies their stock through a range of local garden centres or preferred landscapers. They offer a daily delivery service throughout metropolitan Melbourne and will arrange interstate deliveries through specialist plant carriers.
Botanix also offer contract growing services. In order ensure your commercial project meets it requirements, talk to Botanix about a contract grow that will allow you to meet individual specifications and lead times for large developments.
Botanix Plant Supply is an active member of both the Nursery and Garden Industry (NGIA) and Landscaping Victoria (LV) associations. They have also contributed to the multi award-winning Tree and Shrub Growers of Victoria stand at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.
