About

We’re a team of native plant enthusiasts, eager to share their beauty with gardeners and garden lovers everywhere.

Native Plant Project germinated as an idea by Alan and Carol Schwartz, whose love of nature, plants and things of beauty inspired them to encourage Australians to learn more about our country’s incredible native flora.

In Merricks on the Mornington Peninsula, horticulturalist Tamara Brown brings her passion for native plants to create our very own our native nursery, nurturing plants until they’re ready for your garden.

And Editor at Large, Susan Wright seeks out native plant experts, enthusiasts and lovers to share guides, stories and inspiration on the wonderful bounty of Australia’s native plants.

Each month, we’ll unearth native plant projects large and small, from private and public gardens; designers, architects, florists and artists and provide expert tips, growing guides and gardening information to inspire and inform.

Our e-nursery will help you start your own native plant project with plant boxes of single varieties or curated boxes carefully grown, selected and shipped direct to your door. (*excluding WA & NT).
