Brunnings Garden Products is one of Australia's leading manufacturers and suppliers of home garden products.
Australian owned, it is an industry leader in many categories including lawn seed, fertilisers, weedicides, potting mix, composts, and wire baskets. The Brunnings range spans approx. 300 products, many of which can be found in leading supermarkets, hardware, discount department stores and garden centres. Some of its famous brands include Feed’n’Weed, Green Up Lawn Food, Nitrophoska, Lawn Repair and Easy Wetta.
It is a little known fact that Brunnings is one of Australia's longest surviving businesses and brands with roots going back to the 1800's.
In fact Brunnings has had a prominent impact on the gardens and orchards of Australia and overseas since the arrival of George and Charles Brunning to Melbourne in 1852. After arriving George and Charles started Brunnings Nurseries which expanded throughout the 1850's and 60's, specialising in garden flowers and shrubs many of which were sold in other parts of Australia. In 1889 John Brunning grew the first Victorian block of 175 Jonathan apple trees, which became a forerunner of Australian orcharding.
Meanwhile another branch of the family commenced trading in Elizabeth St, Melbourne as FH Brunning and gained a reputation Australia-wide for farm seeds, lawn seeds, grains and vegetable seeds. FH Brunning became the forerunner to the Brunnings Garden Products we have today.
In 1858 the Brunnings Australian Gardener was launched and became well known around Australia as the bible of Australian gardening with 34 editions by 1958. It is still published today.
