How to Order

Step 1: Understand what you are buying.

  We sell bare rooted, fully dormant trees. We ship them well packed with moist  sawdust or recycled newspaper so the roots won't dry out. Bare rooted trees have more natural root systems because the roots are not restricted by growing in a pot. We don’t sell or recommend so called ‘advanced’ trees. When smaller trees are planted they will adapt better to their new environment and grow faster than taller trees. Buying bare rooted trees also means that they don't take up much space once they are packed and are much easier to carry and ship.

Step 2: Understand who you are buying from.

We are a small nursery and all our trees are propagated on-site. We are not a reseller.  As the demand for cold hardy trees increases, be sure to order early as demand exceeds supply. They are grown outside to be ready for real life when planted in your yard. We specialize cold climate trees.

Step 3: Understand about delivery and collection

Our dispatch months are July and August, when the trees are fully dormant. Once we’ve received your order we will provide a post/freight quotation for your order. If you’re in our local area you are welcome to collect your order by appointment from our filed nursery. Do not expect to find a huge garden centre with buildings, greenhouses, machinery, and employees, because you won't see any of that!

We offer our own tree deliveries within Tasmania as per the prices below based on kilometres from our field nursery in the Huon Valley, southern Tasmania. All other areas (outside Tasmania) we use Australia Post.  We are limited by Australia Post size restrictions and cannot post anything over 1m in length. We can, at no harm to the tree, prune upright growing varieties to fit this criteria, however we are unable to do this to weeping trees.

Costs for delivery in Tasmania only via Our Deliveries from our field nursery in the Huon Valley:
Up to 50klm               $44 per order
51-100klm                 $66 per order
101-200klm               $75 per order
201-300klm               $85 per order
301+                            $110 per order

Please note: we do not deliver to Bruny Island.  Australia Post if the only option for this area.

Cost for post and packing via Australia Post:

NSW and ACT:       $50 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter
VIC:                           $40 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter
TAS:                          $30 for the first tree and $5 per tree thereafter

Post for Rootstock Orders: Please email for package and post quote.

Step 4: Understand about ordering

Ordering opens in March of each year and runs through to the end of dispatch in August.

Please email: maplegrovenursery@bigpond.com  to place your order.

Be sure to include the varieties you would like, a postal address and contact telephone number.  Also if you have a preferred time to receive your trees within July and August.

Step 5: Confirmations

Once your order has been placed we will send you a confirmation invoice. If you don’t receive this within 7 days please contact us to make sure we’ve received your order. We will contact you as soon as your trees are ready to be dispatched and organise payment and a convenient time for delivery or collection. We accept MasterCard, Visa and direct deposit.
