Our History

Win James, the founder of Benara Nurseries and an inspiration to all Benara employees. Win retired from full-time work at age 83, a truly stout example of hardworking ethics. Testament to the family’s ongoing commitment to personalised service, her legacy of attention to detail, extraordinary customer service and a determination to succeed was handed down to the current generation.

Joining Win James full time in the early 70’s, Garry and Ian James’ commitment and drive to succeed, expanded the business into what it has become today; Australia’s largest wholesale nursery. As a family owned and operated horticultural business, we pride ourselves on being plant specialists whilst understanding the needs of our clients, with excellent customer service and professional support, handed down from generation to generation.
