Our History

A passion for plants led Russell Downes to establish his very own Nursery. In 1984, Russell successfully opened Downes Wholesale Nursery, a 10-acre plant nursery originally located in Rossmore. Soon, and with the addition of Russell’s two sons joining the business, Downes Wholesale Nursery quickly outgrew its original location and moved to a 145-acre property in Theresa Park.

For nearly 40 years, this Family Business has flourished, providing the landscaping and development industry with a large selection of quality plants and trees. With the 3rd Generation of Downes family members now joining the business, Downes Wholesale Nursery has become one of the largest market leaders in the industry.

Today, Downes Wholesale Nursery employs over 80 staff and spans two locations, with a combined area of 225 acres of plants. No matter which location you visit, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who are always here to help you get your next project underway.
