Plant sourcing Supplier search

  • Please note that we are primarily a grower of a specific range of landscaping plants, which we offer for sale via our Online shop.
  • The plant sourcing request form which was formally available on this page, has now been made obsolete, and we currently encourage users to do their own plant searches by using our search facility at the following URL:
  • If you have a business which purchases plants regularly, and your business is registered for GST, then you may apply for a free end user account on Interplant.
  • If not, then much of the search facility is still available to you, as many of the wholesale nurseries listed there may either sell direct, or advise you of the nearest reseller.

Please message us on our "Contact page" if you need any assistance.
