About The Kalamunda Plant Company

I’m fascinated by edible and medicinal plants.

I think it’s important to promote the kinds of plants I (and others) grow and offer them to gardeners, along with education and some information about their history and use.

Sometimes you can go from nursery to nursery and a lot of the plants are the same. I think variation is important.

Am I an expert? No. Am I passionate about learning? Yes.

I believe it’s important gardeners are given more choices. There are many wonderful plants that you just don’t see around much anymore. Plants that have been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years that we know of. Introducing these plants to gardeners is important.

My aim is to help keep your garden productive and abundant with loads of fresh food, to offer education on how to get the most out of your plants and to understand the benefits of growing your own food.

Meet The Grower

Plants are amazing. I don't think many people realise just how incredible they are.

(Adv. Diploma of Horticulture)

Andrew is a proud former Police Officer. After sustaining a permanent spinal injury during a violent arrest, Andrew’s well-known smile faded over the years and he knew some big changes had to be made to get things back on track.

Andrew has always loved growing plants. He gained his formal qualifications and started the Kalamunda Plant Company in 2018. He fell in love with edible and medicinal plants. As his hunger for knowledge grew, he realised just how much he enjoyed sharing his findings with others and watching them succeed. Before too long, Andrew’s beautiful smile returned and he’s been growing happy, healthy plants ever since.

Andrew wanted to share his love of plants with an even wider audience so he started the Kalamunda Garden Festival, a free community event celebrating gardening and good mental health. Andrew funds the event himself and he’s very proud of the beautiful gardening family that makes the event such a success.

FAQs

I haven't ordered plants through a website before. How does it work?

You simply order through the website. When you place your order, choose whether you’d like to collect your order from us in Kalamunda or whether you’d like Perth metro delivery for $15. Once we receive your order, we’ll contact you via email to confirm it and email an invoice. This may not be immediate, especially for after hours and weekend orders. Check your junk folder if you haven’t heard from us within 24 hours (we always reply within 24 hours). The email will include your collection / delivery details. If you’re collecting your order, just give us 24 hours notice prior to collection and we’ll leave your order out for you in the collection area. Your order will have your name on it. You just help yourself. If you’re opting for delivery, we’ll give you plenty of notice and arrange a delivery date with you.

I’m after a certain plant but I can’t find it on your website. Can you get it for me?

Most of the time, yes. We have access to thousands of different varieties of plants. Just let us know what you’re after via email and we’ll see if we can source it. We’ll email you back with the prices and sizes for you to consider. We have accounts with major suppliers all over Australia and accounts with small-scale local growers and suppliers, so if there’s a plant you see when you’re out and about, there’s a very good chance we can get it for you.

Once I place an order, when will the plants be available?

If you’re selecting plants from our website, the plants can be ready for collection the next day or for Perth metro delivery within the week.

If you’re collecting your order, we just need 24 hours notice prior to collection. Orders are prepared, tagged with your name and left out ready for collection. Just help yourself. A lot of our customers are regulars – we’re just one big plant-loving family!

If you’re ordering plants we don’t grow ourselves (not on the website) and need to be sourced from suppliers, these usually take a week to be delivered to us. Orders for plants we don’t grow must be paid in advance prior to us placing the order.

I've tried to search your address online but can't find it. Why don't you promote your address?

We don’t promote our address because we don’t have a nursery that’s open to the public. We’re a grower who sells our plants online. We’re not a nursery. We don’t have display stock and we don’t have staff available on site to answer your gardening questions. The address in Kalamunda is merely a collection point for online orders. We are an online nursery after all.
