Current nursery industry issues in Australia©

D.J. Hancock
  • The Australian economy is being driven by mining boom time carry over, population /immigration growth and government spending (mostly not sustainable).
  • Retail plant volume growth is through Bunnings and Masters chain stores and underpinned by strong housing development.
  • Smaller retailers surviving by e-commerce and diversification of products and services.
  • Endemic plant demand strong due to swing back to natives and environmental impacts and offsets.
