Our Story

Gippsland grown since 1983.

The Van Berkel name is synonymous with the horticulture trade in Gippsland.  Horticulture is in Arch’s blood, and it appears it’s hereditary, with the father daughter duo now in business together.

From citrus, to magnolias and ornamental trees, the nursery boasts a wide variety of stock to supply local farmers, councils (including Latrobe City), landscapers and developers, and other Melbourne nursery outlets.

Arch’s wife Sue describes the renowned Gippsland enterprise as a “hobby out of control”, while Arch attributes much of the business growth in recent years to Leree’s arrival. After working in garden maintenance in Melbourne’s suburbs, Leree – with her young family – returned to Gippsland in pursuit of a tree change. And that’s exactly what she got!



Our trees are procured from our trusted network of suppliers at a young age, and chosen to suit the Gippsland and Melbourne climate they will then mature in. We apply our own custom-made fertiliser to carefully control plant growth and vitality. Our 5-hectare nursery is located in Gippsland’s Macalister Irrigation District with reliable high-quality water supply.


We offer a delivery service for ease and peace of mind, running deliveries around Gippsland and Melbourne weekly with the ability to facilitate state-wide or interstate deliveries as required.


We provide expert advice on the best (and most hardy) selection of plants for the chosen environment, to help our clients make informed and lasting decisions. Our stock management, ordering systems, supplier kits, delivery, planting and maintenance services make the entire process easy and cost effective.

We grow and supply a wide variety of advanced trees & plants for that ready-made or established look at the height and quality our customers require, when they need it, making the entire process easy and cost effective.
