About The Kalamunda Plant Company…
We encourage positivity and the sharing of knowledge. We strive to offer our customers variation in fruit, herbs and vegetables as an alternative to those varieties found in most supermarket chains.
We’re fascinated by edible plants. We proudly help bring back old fashioned varieties of fruit and vegetables, eagerly explore the benefits of medicinal herbs and celebrate native Australian bush food in Perth gardens. If its a plant that you can eat, then it’s of special interest to us.
We grow and maintain our plants in an organic and sustainable manner. We celebrate the wonderful world of plants, nature and our local environment. We look forward to opening a nursery in the Kalamunda village in the near future.
At the Kalamunda Plant Company, our aim is to keep your garden productive and abundant with loads of fresh food, to offer education on how to get the most out of your crops and to understand the benefits of growing your own food.

Gardening is a great place for engaging, educating and inspiring children.
– Mandy Osenton
(Adv. Dip. Horticulture)
Andrew has been in small business in Kalamunda since 1999. The Kalamunda Plant Company is his latest and most exciting venture. As a father of three, Andrew was concerned about the quality of fruit and vegetables found in supermarkets. He decided to source seeds and grow old-fashioned and hard to find varieties of produce. He was so impressed with the quality, flavour and visual appeal that he wanted to play his part in bringing exposure to these remarkable crops.
Andrew fell in love with the benefits of medicinal herbs and after searching for years for particular plants, he started accumulating and propagating his own range of these multi-purpose wonders. By growing the medicinal stock himself, Andrew can guarantee that no herbicides, pesticides or inorganic fertilisers are used on his plants.

Mandy is the happy, bubbly face of the business.
She has a Bachelor of Primary Education and works locally as a school teacher.
She oversees all the children’s gardening resources found on this site, answers the education-related questions and works on introducing our services into education-related income avenues.
Mandy is the social media boffin and manages the promotion of the business.
She’ll also be given one of the trucks to drive once they’re restored to assist with deliveries, which she is very happy about!
They WILL come to life!
They’ve seen better days. Time for a second chance. We’d like to introduce our lovely trucks.
We are in the loving process of restoring them, so please come on our journey and check out the progress at our Bedford Blog.
… and our
Things we love to do…
Grown by the
Kalamunda Plant Company
We sell happy, healthy, quality plants.
Our seeds are sourced from our own plants or certified organic suppliers. We grow a lot of our own plants from our own strong, healthy parent stock, free from disease. Plant hygiene is very important to us.
Numerous propagation techniques are used throughout our range. We encourage strong young plants by hardening them from a young age to Perth’s conditions. We use organic fertilisers and follow the practices of sustainable gardening throughout the process of the plant’s development.
We select the correct pot sizes for the plants to encourage strong root growth whilst deep watering our stock. We pride ourselves on sourcing additional local plant stock as a priority. We love what we grow and believe in what we sell.
Giving Plants a Second Chance.
Do you have any unwanted plants and want to help your community?
If you have any unwanted plants and want to help your community, you are welcome to donate them to The Kalamunda Plant Company and we’ll re-pot and restore them for resale with 100% of the profits going to a local community group. We don’t make any financial gain from this service (it actually costs us) but helping the community is what we’re all about.
We are currently raising money for the Kalamunda Community Garden, a wonderful initiative bringing people together to share their love of gardening.
The donated plants are stored in an isolated area separate to our fresh stock, minimising the risk of any possible disease and contamination that could affect the quality of our retail stock.
Donated plants can be left with us in Kalamunda after prior arrangements have been made. High value donations can be collected from your home or work.

… and our amazing online shop …
Here is a bit of information we think you should know about the Kalamunda Plants Shop…
The business currently operates solely online. We are not a nursery… yet.
We operate from home and are not open to the public.
We grow loads of plants ourselves and source additional stock from local suppliers and enthusiasts as a priority.
We don’t store plants on site and do not have display stock for viewing. Plants are ordered in fresh once an order is made. This enables us to keep costs down and pass the savings onto our customers.
To offer the full range of plants found in large nurseries, we also source further plants from commercial growers in Western Australia and from Flemings in Victoria (once a year). The commercial growers use herbicides and pesticides and non-organic fertilisers on their plants. This practise stops once the plants arrive with us.
Once an order is made, plants take one week to arrive with us in Kalamunda. Plants can be collected from us or delivery can be arranged for a fee.
