White House Nursery

About Us

We are a boutique, rare plant nursery, in Fern Hill, Victoria, half way between Woodend and Daylesford. The nursery is located on our farm, where we also breed cattle, agist horses, have free-range chickens, a home for our two Border Collies, Forest and Fanny and an old cat named Schlommy.

Peter Harris and Jess Exiner run White House Nursery.

Peter Harris has been involved in horticulture for over 32 years and has specialised in the growing of rare plants for many of these. He has worked with the Melbourne City Council growing plants for the Fitzroy Gardens, the Chandler Nurseries and in his own tube stock nursery, which became the largest in Victoria.

Jess Exiner has been involved in property and garden restoration, which includes his last project at 'Mawarra', the Edna Walling garden in Sherbrooke, Victoria. This garden was totally restored over five years and the house restored over three years. Jess sold this property in 2010.

As this website is evolving, you may find a picture missing occasionally.

Over the next twelve months, we will try to fill in all the gaps with the appropriate photos. In the meantime, if the photo is missing, we suggest you 'Google' the botanical name for an image. Because of copy-write laws, we are unable to use any images from the net. But it is an excellent way to view the plant pictures we don't have yet.

If you have any enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact Jess on 0419 002 651

If he can't answer your question, he will call you back at the end of the day after consulting with Peter. We love our work and are very proud of the quality of plants we are achieving. Please enjoy our mail-order website.
