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.
