m2 To the vision

About this organisation

From its very beginnings Yates has prided itself on supplying quality products, and this is a company policy that is still of paramount importance. Although traditionally best known for its packet seed range, Yates now manufactures and distributes an extensive range of garden products.

Yates supports a number of worthwhile gardening-related properties and causes throughout Australia and New Zealand. These include Victorian School Gardens Awards, Retina Australia, Calthorpes House Canberra, Community Gardens program run by Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens and Trees For Survival in New Zealand.

Yates is one of those long-established Australasian companies that has become a household name. This acceptance has been encouraged by the widespread popularity of Yates Garden Guide, which was first written by Arthur Yates in 1895. After more than a century of publication Yates Garden Guide has become recognised as the best-selling gardening book in both countries.

Why we support the vision

There are many society based benefits that can be linked to the 202020 Vision.

As a corporate with over 125 years of history in the ANZ garden industry, it is not only strategically aligned to aspirational goals of increasing participation in and around green - garden space in general, but it also has positive flow on effects for future generations.
