Anna and Ray moved to the stunning 10 acre property in the Macedon Ranges at 302 Mt Gisborne Road, Gisborne in the Winter of 1992. They were captivated by the dramatic beauty of the landscape. The property is nestled 600 metres above sea level on a volcanic plain, offering views of the city skyline, Port Phillip Bay, with sunrises to the east and sunsets to the west. The western views overlook Bullengarook, the Wombat State Forest, Mount Blackwood and beyond.
Who we are
302 Flowers began in the mid 1990s with planting the first Pink Ice proteas in the rich, red acidic soil. The proteas and natives grow happily on the slopes, a natural free draining position, thriving on sun and rain.
On arrival at 302 Mt Gisborne road, you are greeted by a sweeping driveway lined by various Eucalyptus trees planted by us in 1992. A love of plants and the natural environment sees us constantly adding to our plant selection. Birdlife is abundant on the farm, enjoying the protea blooms. Bees buzz happily with a Flow Hive introduced in 2020. Local kangaroos and wallabies graze on the hills of the property.
Our boutique, micro flower farm produces fresh cut proteas, banksias, leucadendrons, a variety of beautiful natives, foliage and other plant varieties.
We also grow hand selected unusual blooms that add a little "something different" to our bouquets.

We offer seasonal blooms and follow our philosophy that works with nature, our flowers grown in a natural environment.
