About Us

Established by Ern Bennet in the 1850’s, Humphris Nursery has come a long way in 162 years. This large production nursery has been modernised, expanded and cared for by 5 generations of the Humphris family making it one of the oldest continuously registered wholesale nurseries in Australia.

Located on 10 hectares in Mooroolbark, Victoria, Humphris Nursery has expanded and developed to include not just high quality plants to the retail trade, but also to landscapers, councils, advanced growers and plant breeders. We also offer contract growing and AQIS approved quarantine facilities.

These agreements allow us to grow the very best in new wave PBR plants being bred all around the world as well as our commitment to undertaking our own research and development.
