Plant Hunting in Tasmania – a Magical Mystery Tour!

One of the lesser-known, but increasingly cherished benefits of the Apple Isle, is its rapidly developing reputation as a supplier of diverse, and frequently much sought after plants and bulbs.

This is not entirely new. Tasmanian nurserymen have supplied choice plants to broader Australian markets for over a century now and our reputation continues to grow.

With the natural benefits of our benign climate and excellent soils, specialist Tasmanian growers continue to evolve and increasingly supply their botanical bounty to discerning gardeners and plant lovers elsewhere.

Generally speaking, Tasmanian grown plants, free from soil, are able to be taken to Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland without restriction. Alternatively, many Tasmanian growers can ship their plants to you in all Australian states or give advice on transporting your plants home.

On each member site’s page, you will see a small green map with a black dot to give you a quick understanding of where that site is, and a number (in lemon) that corresponds to a more precise location on the PDF map.

The black dot will give a quick guide as to what sites are in a relatively close proximity and hence may prove useful in bringing together your day plan. When you decide what you would like to do, then go to the PDF map to see more information on how to get to each site.
