Poplar Grove's Roots

From our backyard in 2000, Poplar Grove leased a 1 1/2-acre site at Lonsdale in the south of Adelaide. What was a hobby, grew to fill the nursery to capacity and by 2004 and we realised that a new site was necessary.

After twelve months of searching, a nine-acre property at Sellicks Beach, 45 minutes south of Adelaide, was purchased and began to be developed in January 2007. Stage One, saw 450m of shedding, 1500m of shade and tunnels and 12000m of growing area, which was completed five months later and is still a "work in progress".

The hard work of Jason, Lisa, Heath, Steve, Angus, Ben, Sue, Mike, Zoe and 'The Pom' paid off when Poplar Grove began dispatch at the new site in July 2007.

By 2023 the nursery has grown to 10 acres has around 6 mega litres of water storage and recycles to Nursery industry best practice. Solar panels offset between 75% of our power use. Constant improvement and expansion continue as we aim for becoming completely self-sufficient for all our power and water needs. We grow in recycled pots and have reduce our reliance on chemicals with the use predatory insects and non-chemical sprays and potions!
