Production & Sustainability

Water conservation and sustainability have always been an important element at TGA Australia. Forward planning has ensured the development of excellent growing areas that include; leading drainage systems, recycling water treatment/storage and windbreak/trellis facilities. High quality stock is stipulated by effective quality control methods and production processes.

The nursery maintains the highest standards of hygiene and nursery practice consistent with the requirements of the Nursery Accreditation Scheme. Special attention is given to the production of a sound root system.

All container stock is irrigated by dripper irrigation; supplied by recycled water. The state of the art recycling system accounts for 100% of all water used in the growing of plants. The dripper irrigation system allows for accurate control of irrigation schedules resulting in a superior plant.

TGA Australia sources all potting stock from accredited growers. All of our potted stock is grown in TGA customised blends of potting media produced by NIASA; accredited growing media supplier AGS in Tyabb, Victoria. This potting mix has slow release fertilizer incorporated throughout - resulting in an extended shelf life for the retailer and stronger establishment performance when planted out for the end user.
