Garden City Plastics was established back in 1975 by Len and Austral Wilson on the site of the Wilson Indoor Nursery at Heatherton in Victoria, Australia. A plastics container manufacturing plant was born out of the need to have a reliable source of pots and containers designed for horticultural purposes that are competitively priced and available when required. Their mission for quality, best price and can-do approach has stood the test of time.

Back in 1992 Garden City Plastics purchased a 2-hectare factory and warehouse situated in Monbulk, Victoria for production of injection moulded plastic pots. Fast forward to their recent move to a much larger manufacturing headquarters at Dandenong South, Victoria and see how GCP has grown, they gratefully acknowledge the many customers that have come to their business to find the best solution and products for their growing applications. Garden City Plastic’s range now extends to Plant Health, Fertilisers and Decorative Containers of various design with over 200 colour choices. The catalogue of products at GCP is still expanding and now includes world class peat and coir growing media, to further fulfil the demand of customers.

Environmental programs are also part of Garden City Plastics’ business, as a large number of Garden City Plastics black plastic pots and containers are made from recycled plastic. Polypropylene Pots and containers are fully recyclable, a project that was given a boost by the introduction of the recycling program. Established in 2003 this policy was brought in-line with growers and councils to help recycle their pots and containers. All Garden City Plastics’ pots and containers are 100% recyclable.
