About Australian Desert Blooms
Choosing the name for the business was important to us as we wanted to represent what we do. We have been growing cacti and succulents for 30 years and it has been in the family for over 50, so our experience and knowledge extends well before we ever starting selling to the public.
We do this because we love it, and it shows in the quality of our plants.
We are Growing!
At the moment, extra sections of the sheds are being built to expand the nursery; 36 sheds and all measuring 5m x 6m.
Over 100,000 plants are grown at once. Shelves are in place with shaded plants under the tables and full sun cactus on top.
There is solar shield plastic over the top of the sheds with lots of light coming in, reaching temperatures of 40c, great for the mature plants.
Scattered shade cloth is used in the walk ways during summer to protect the younger plants.
Native bee hives take care of the flowers and watering is in place, to water above and below.
Lots of varieties will be coming on sale this year.
Gardening is developing, with a rock garden with bromeliads, cacti and succulents growing all together – 19 years of progress.
