Art along with your plants
If you have driven along Beaudesert Road, close to Algester Road in Brisbane any time in the last 30 years you may have noticed the Templex Nursery.

A feast for your eyes!


Now, this is not just your ordinary nursery. This one comes with a twist that delights your senses, awakens your creativity and has you wandering in awe, like a small child in a candy store.

It has cavemen, bird feeders, dragons, beehives, dancing ladies, lizards, buddhas, angels, aliens and so much more. You will spend a lot of your time admiring the sculptures.

Around every corner, hiding in trees, on tables, under shelves, attached to poles, sitting in the water, sitting beside the water, and attached to fences, there are sculptures everywhere.

Tallest native beehive!


There are large ones, giant ones, small teeny tiny one, blue ones, wooden ones, concrete and metal ones. There are even sculptures made out of old garden shoes.



The creator, a lovely and kind older gentleman, (whose name I failed to get) has created the most amazing and unique selection that will tantalise and entice you as you wander the property. Maybe you will even be inspired to create your own garden sculptures.

The sculptures are a hobby and none are for sale but are there to fill space and to capture your attention and they do it brilliantly. They also keep you captivated and moving at a slow pace so you can take note of the many and varied plants, which is why you came in the first place.

Find inspiration!


They have a large selection to cover all your gardening needs. Do you need plants for the shade? They have philodendrons, bromeliads, anthuriums, ferns and palms.

Are you after some herbs? Basil, coriander, and more nest together in a beautiful green display. Succulents and cactus are plentiful and good for those hot, hard to grow places in your garden. Then there are roses, azaleas and more.

There are several types of fruit trees, and bushes. You could start your own orchard with the varieties you will find.

FInd them here!


Then there are the pots, back beside the water plants. They are beautiful, oriental, and unique to any other place I have found here in Brisbane. With their beautiful, delicate designs, comes strength, able to withstand any of the Queensland weather you throw at them.

Everything you need for your soil, whether it be for planting pots, fertilising, mulching or seeding, you will find what you need.

And upon your checkout, you meet the lovely creative man's equally lovely, helpful partner. With her kind and charming manner, she assists you with your purchases, chatting as she goes. She told me they started the garden centre 30 years ago when their son was 7 years old. What a lovely way to mark the times of their lives.

If you find yourself on Beaudesert Road, in Algester, make a point of stopping in at the Templex Nursery, you will love it, even if you go just to browse. And don't forget the plants you were coming to buy.
