A quick note on quarantine laws

Australia has a number of bio security laws that impact the importation of plants into and within Australia. They are complicated and really tricky to summarise - and I am not an expert nor claim to be on this! Often plant sites refer to states as being “quarantine“ or “non-quarantine states” - these are colloquial terms that have come into common usage. 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.  To understand more about these laws refer to the relevant state bio security laws.

The below information was correct at the time of publishing. Please ensure you check the relevant site for up to date information.

    other factors that could be added to this,
    -how they post their products.
    -do they grow their plants or source them. If so at what percentage?
    -environmental impact, eco friendly.
    -products value eg. Are they expensive?
    Because its all good having capped postage if you charge a million dollars a plant. Lol
