Ausplant Nursery Acquires Rochedale Nurseries
On 28 November 2017, Ausplant Nursery acquired Rochedale Nurseries.
Rochedale Nurseries was established in 1901 and is one of the oldest nurseries in Queensland. Over the past 60 years Rochedale Nurseries have cemented their position as Queensland’s largest rose grower.
Ausplant Nursery has undergone extensive expansion in the last 12 months, and have relocated Rochedale Nurseries to their Dalby site.
Managing Director, Brady Cumming, advised the Dalby site has some great rose growing advantages. Its drier climate with less humidity should produce a quality rose for customers.
Owners of Rochedale Nurseries, Michael and Shelly Obrist, will be working with the Ausplant team to assure a smooth transition and consulting on growing protocols.
We are very excited about our new venture and look forward to the upcoming rose season.
