About Us

Leaf & Limb is a wholesale production nursery specialising in Oncidium Intergeneric orchids, located in the beautiful lush subtropical Sunshine Coast hinterland town of Kin Kin.   Leaf & Limb was started by Sam Cowie and Alysse Nicolson-Cowie in 2005 and has continued to expand and improve operations until the present day. Our aim is to grow and market the best available Oncidium Intergeneric orchids to the Australian market.

As a member of the Nursery & Garden Industry Queensland (NGIQ) we are aiming to achieve the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia (NIASA) by 2015, followed soon after by the EcoHort and BioSecure HACCP schemes. Due to biosecurity and quarantine protocols the nursery isn’t open to the public.

Sam Cowie is available to talk at garden and orchid society meetings by appointment. Although we are a commercial nursery we hope to inspire the long term and pleasurable experience of owning and growing the many varieties of orchids and introducing people to the wonderful social interaction that comes with belonging to an orchid society or just the experiencing the world of orchids.
