Our sustainable story

Welcome to Harmony Garden Centre, where our passion for green ethics propels us to lead the industry in sustainable practices. At Harmony, we believe that nurturing the environment is not just a responsibility but a commitment to creating a better world for future generations.

Green Ethics at the Core:

Our business is deeply rooted in green ethics, guiding every decision we make. From the selection of plant varieties to the daily operations of our garden centre, sustainability is woven into the fabric of Harmony. We are dedicated to minimising our ecological footprint, conserving resources, and promoting biodiversity.


Harmony Garden Centre stands as a pioneer in water management through our investment in state-of-the-art technology for our undercover nursery. Our Priva roof technology represents a groundbreaking approach to water conservation. This innovative system not only significantly reduces our watering requirements but also allows us to capture and reuse 100% of the water within our undercover nursery

This advanced roofing structure plays a pivotal role in nurturing our outdoor greenlife. By creating optimal conditions for plant growth, it promotes healthier root development and overall plant performance. Our plants, akin to well-conditioned athletes, establish faster and experience minimal stress during transplantation, thanks to the precision and efficiency of our Priva roof technology.



At Harmony Garden Centre, we take pride in our native tubestock program, which now includes our Harmony-branded 125mm black plastic pots adorned with our distinctive logo. This initiative is a key component of our commitment to minimizing plastic waste, and we actively encourage our customers to be part of this sustainable effort by returning their used 50mm native tubes.

It's important to clarify that, currently, our pot recycling efforts are focused on the 50mm tubes and Harmony-branded 125mm black plastic pots. While we are concentrating on these sizes at present, we are transparent about our ambition to expand our pot recycling initiatives in the future.



We are particularly excited about incorporating 125mm black plastic pots, featuring the Harmony logo, into our recycling program. These pots serve as a symbol of our dedication to sustainable practices, and their inclusion highlights our commitment to reducing single-use plastics throughout our operations.

 Worms dig our bags!

 Did you know that the magic organic ingredient used in our compostable carry bags is corn. We choose these corn bags as an annually renewable crop. Unlike trees, corn can re-grow and be harvested in a single season.

The actual corn crops deliberately sourced from international GMO-free regions with high levels of rain, to minimise any irrigation. In addition, the actual corn kernels selected are classified as third grade corn and printed with soy-based, non-toxic printing inks.  

 With over 50% of Australian household waste organic, reducing the amount sent to landfill can have a significantly positive environmental benefit, and contribute towards reducing the risk of landfill, including the omission of gasses linked to global warming.

 Our bags are Australian Certified compostable, for both home composting and industrial composting facilities. The liners breakdown with the organic waste through microbial activity, in the same way as their parent plants, creating a rich soil enhancing compost, perfect for the family vegetable patch, or, in commercial quantities, for organic farming. Importantly, the nutrients taken in the harvesting of corn for manufacturing our bags, can then be returned to the Earth as compost for future crops.


 As industry leaders, we invite you to join us on this journey towards a greener and more sustainable future. At Harmony Garden Centre, we not only sell plants; we cultivate a vision for a harmonious coexistence with nature. Explore our garden centre, where green ethics flourish, water is managed responsibly, plant life thrives, and recycling is a way of life. Together, let's grow a sustainable tomorrow.
