About Greenlink

Greenlink Box Hill Incorporated is a voluntary organisation that grows and sells plants that are indigenous to the greater Whitehorse area of Melbourne. Our activities focus on propagating plants at our nursery in Box Hill North and re-establishing them in their natural habitats. Greenlink works in conjunction with the City of Whitehorse Parks and Gardens staff. We sell plants to the public, community groups, councils and companies.

Address: 41 Wimmera Street Box Hill North 3129. Ph: 0479 121 653

All enquiries: greenlinkboxhill@gmail.com

Open Tuesday and Wednesday mornings 9am to 12pm, however during this difficult and challenging time of the Coronavirus (COVID-19 crisis and to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and customers, the nursery is operating with a small number of volunteers to enable us to practice social distancing of 1.5m. At this stage we will not be accepting cash and we will request payment by direct bank credit.

We ask that customers where possible limit visits to the nursery and place any orders via email. To help you select the appropriate plant for your project, go to “Our Plants” page where you will find a PLANT INFORMATION and PICTURES link to view all the plants we stock with details of height, width, aspect, soil and comments on the plants. We will prepare your order with an invoice for payment. Appointments can be made to pick up your plants at the nursery. Should you choose to select your own plants, we ask that you “pick” and “pack” what you need.

Changes to our Saturday morning sale days for 2020:  18th April – Cancelled,        23rd May – under review,   22th August, 19th September and 24th October 2020, from 9am to 1pm.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Advice to Members – 25th March 2020

Greenlink would like to inform you of the responsible approach and measures we will be taking to ensure our Volunteers, Members, Customers and our Nursery Environment, remain safe and protected during this challenging time and in particular to avoid spread of the virus.

At this stage we are still open albeit with a handful of Volunteers, but will continue to heed the Government directives. We have implemented all measures recommended by Heath Authorities.

We ask that you support us with these effective ways of combatting the spread of the Virus:

  • If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms similar to coronavirus, please stay away from the Nursery
  • Avoid coming into contact with persons known to have the virus and if you have been in contact with someone who has arrived from overseas in the past two weeks, do not attend the Nursery
  • Effectively cover your cough and sneezes, securely dispose of used tissues and personally use alcohol-based hand sanitiser everywhere possible, if unavailable wash your hands as instructed by heath authorities and practitioners – we will have facilities to do this.
  • Practice Social Distancing of 1.5m outdoors or 4sqm indoors. This will also apply to plant purchases. We are only able to accept direct bank credit for purchase of plants and will ask you to pick and pack your own plants. We are happy to take phone and email orders.

Greenlink will take all appropriate measures and provide the necessary structure and materials necessary to ensure everyone is protected as much as is possible.

We will advise you if, and when circumstances change. Should you have any concerns, please contact me and thank you in advance for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Kind regards

Trevor Eddy
