The Australian nursery industry at a glance

The nursery industry is a significant contributor to Australian horticulture.

It is currently valued at approximately $2.4 billion and employs up to 25,000 people across 1,651 production businesses. The nursery industry continues to grow and thrive, as does its contribution to the nation’s economic, environmental and social wellbeing.

Growers operate from all corners of Australia and produce a variety of greenlife: from ornamentals, trees and shrubs, as well as starter plants for fruit and vegetable production and stock for landscaping, forestry and revegetation.

The latest results from the Nursery Industry Statistics project show the value of the nursery industry grew by approximately 5% over the past two years, due to increased demand for greenlife and strong grower confidence.
