Ausflora pacific does not sell direct to the public, we are a wholesale grower of plants and flowers specialising in the Protea, Leucadendron, Leucospermum(Pincushion protea) and Telopea(Waratah), to find a supplier of our plants see our Where to buy page.
It is best to prune your Protea plant after flowering has finished, by removing all spent protea flowers and bent branches, with established plants the stem can be cut to leave about 10cm of stem remaining on the plant, with younger plants the stem should be cut to the first node.
Protea Flowers can be picked during the season to use in floral arrangements this will also reduce amount of pruning required at the end of the season.
Pruning Protea plants will ensure abundance of protea flowers in the future and maintain the shape of the plant.
Do not prune the unflowering Protea stems unless they are impacting the shape of the plant as these will be the following years Protea flowers
