About Us

Our desire is to deliver the finest quality trees to our customers and to set new benchmarks in growing trees for new and established market trends.

JFT Nurseries is a family owned business established in 1981 by Murray and Beryl James and is managed today by Russell James, Colin James and David and Heather Sands.

Situated in the Dandenong Ranges, JFT Nurseries has a growing area covering approximately 80 acres in a rural district renowned for its rich volcanic soil and high rainfall, which is an added advantage in the production of growing strong healthy trees.

The company grows an extensive range of fruiting trees including Apples, Cherries, Plums, Peaches and Nectarines just to name a few. A selection of our Flowering trees include Lilacs, Prunus, Cherries and Crab Apples and our Deciduous Ornamentals include Maples, Ash, Poplars, Birch, Elms and many more. We also have a large range of Weeping and Standard trees. As growers we have control over all facets of growing, grading and quality control, assuring stock quality for our customers.

JFT Nurseries is a well recognised and respected grower throughout the nursery industry with our two main priorities being to produce a top quality tree at a competitive price and to giving our clients personalised and friendly service.
