Dawson’s Garden World Forrestfield
This chain of nurseries began operating in 1903, just two years after Australia became a country. Sit with that for a second.
Today, the Forrestfield HQ (purchased in 1914) is a huge production nursery than supplies about 85 per cent of the plants sold at other Dawson’s locations, in Joondalup, O’Connor and Swanbourne.
Roses are a particular speciality, but this huge, multi-acre site has everything a gardener could need, from garlic bulbs and succulents to hedges and fruit trees.
