In early 2010, Mansfield’s Propagation Nursery, Australia’s multi-Award winning propagation nursery, acquired Austraflora Pty Ltd from Bill Molyneux & Sue Forrester.
Bill & Sue grew Austraflora (in Montrose, Victoria) from its beginnings in the late 1960s to a major retail/wholesale nursery.
Today it is the leading developer & marketer of Australian native plants in the horticultural and landscape industry of Australia.
The Austraflora brand is recognised throughout Australia and around the world. Bill & Sue will continue working with Mansfield’s in the sourcing of climate-appropriate plant varieties, ensuring the continuity of the most comprehensive & widely available native Australian plant range on the market.
In addition, Mansfield’s will absorb their lifetime of knowledge and expertise in Australia’s flora and its requirements in the private garden and contemporary landscape. Bill and Sue are looking forward to passing on this knowledge to our keen young staff, and working together to expand the Austraflora brand in market penetration.
