Online plant shop directory
If you want to greenify your home from the comfort of your own living room, then online shopping is the way to go! Back in April this year, I published a blog post and Google document listing over 50 wonderful online Aussie plant stores, and since then I've received loads of feedback on how useful this is, plus a bunch of new plant stores to add to the list. I'm delighted to announced the directory now lists 75 plant stores, located across Australia.
The directory includes the following info to make it easy to find what you're looking for:
- Store name and URL
- Store location
- Whether they offer local pick-up
- If Afterpay is available
- Which states they ship to
It also includes two sub-directories, which are on their own tabs. One for stores that offer Afterpay, and one for stores that ship to the "quarantine states" (NT, TAS & WA - to learn more, see bottom of this article).
Get in touch
If you’re an Australia-based store owner with an online store that sells plants & offers delivery and would like to be included on this list of online Aussie plant stores, or are on this list and would like your details amended, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A quick note on quarantine states
"Quarantine state" is a colloquial term used to refer to NT, TAS and WA which have specific restrictions which make the importation of plants a bit tricker than the other states (and has nothing to do with COVID19). Australia has quite a few biosecurity laws which are not easy to summarise, nor do I claim to be an expert on them. However if you're shopping online for plants, you will often note these terms being used.
So, here's what you need to know. The "non-quarantine" states are NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT & SA. The "quarantine states" are WA, TAS & NT, and for plants to be imported into those states special permits and/or treatments are required which can carry an additional cost per order.
As a result, quite a few online stores only ship to “non-quarantine states”, so I wanted to show our “quarantine state” friends some extra love with their own tab as they tend to be a bit more restricted in their options for online plant shopping vs us non-q state folks! To understand more about these laws refer to the relevant state bio security laws.
