Zhuhai Birkdale Nursery
GUANGDONG PROVINCE, CHINA
Zhuhai Birkdale Nursery, a 12 hectare site 40 minutes from Macau, was established in 2002 to provide a supply base for the landscaping of Disneyland Hong Kong and other landscape projects in the region. Over 3 million shrubs and 5,000 mature trees were either grown onsite at the nursery or sourced from suppliers across South East Asia and Australia for the Hong Kong Disneyland project.
In 2008, a large shadehouse of 6,500 square metres and 12 metres high was constructed to acclimatise plants specifically for high end indoor use. Special containers are used for large trees and palms to protect root balls and facilitate planting.
The nursery meets international quality standards and is accredited by the Chinese Government to export plants. Current stock at the nursery includes an extensive range of trees, palms and shrubs, including Australian native species
