Nursery Specialising in Australian Native Orchids
Earth to Joy is owned and operated by Lloyd and Mandy Edwards and is situated in the Hinterland between Port Macquarie and Taree in NSW. Our nursery specializes in the breeding and growing of Australian Native Orchids, we also have a few exotic orchids, the covered growing areas are just over 1000m2.
The nursery is open to the public by appointment or plants may be purchased and sent by mail. For large orders eg. Landscapers and Nurseries we do deliver as far as Sydney south and Brisbane north. Our nursery sells to Hobbyists, the Sydney pot plant trade and Landscapers. We grow on a large amount of stock to flowering, in this way we are able to "pull out" the show bench quality orchids and sell the plants for pot plants in bud/bloom and landscaping as mature plants, it also allows us to evaluate our breeding lines.
Our stock is great for landscaping, plants are bred for a temperate climate. It is little remembered that Joseph Banks collected Dendrobium speciosum (one of our major lines) when he had his visit out here, it truly is one of the worlds spectacular flowering plants and is found along Australia's entire east coast.
Much of the stock on offer is from our breeding lines, we only use parents that are hardy, form well rounded plants and have blooms of distinct color, that are well presented and shapely. We have put in a lot of effort to build a collection of stud plants that have either proven themselves or have the characteristics that we look for.
Our Nursery is a lovely place to visit, set in a wonderful setting, with an abundance of bird life and very interesting gardens (Lloyd loves his horticulture and is a Permaculture Designer as well). Groups are welcome, we have plenty of parking for a bus with easy access and amenities. Groups are only allowed to visit between July and November (Council Restrictions), appointment required.
