About Australian Desert Blooms
Australian Desert Blooms have been based in Ipswich Queensland for over 20 years. The Ipswich region has hot summers and cold winters, so all of our cactus and succulent plants are hardy for any climate.
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!
3/4 of a large block of land with large sheds and gardens are currently under development.
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.

As an avid collector of succulents, I purchase plants from many different places. I have been purchasing plants from Australian Desert Blooms for a very long time now. I am always very happy with my purchases. Excellent communication, very well packaged and always sent asap. The succulents are always at an awesome price too. The plants are grown in the growing conditions that they are meant for so that when you get them and plant them they do not drop dead from shock. I have bought many plants from sellers that grow full sun plants in lots of shade to get them perfect looking only for me to take them home, plant them in full sun and for them to either die or get badly damaged by the sun. I look forward to my next purchases.Jane Brummell
I ordered a selection of plants and was impressed with the prompt service and the plants themselves. They were exactly as described and arrived in beautiful condition. It’s the first time I have purchased plants online and couldn’t be happier with the result.Edith Othage
