Farm Profile

The nursery is located in Cabarlah, north of Toowoomba, and cultivates small to medium plants, shrubs and trees for residential and commercial developments. The irrigation method depends on the type of plant and varies between drip irrigation and small travelling irrigators. Water is generally sourced from the town mains supply, with irrigation run for two hours per day and continuing year around.
