How do I contact your Customer Service Centre?

Our customer service team have been operating from their homes since August 2nd (stage 4 restrictions) in order to meet the current legal requirements of a reduced on-site workforce. This has had a huge impact on our ability to respond to queries in a timely manner as they are unable to take phone calls. Currently it is taking between 10-15 business days to respond to email communication despite working extended hours.

Who can order?

Online orders are currently only open to members. This is to allow us to catch up on the surge in demand and despatch orders to gardeners in a timely manner. If you are not a member you can still join the club during this time and then place an order as a member.

Delivery Delays - How long will my order take to be despatched?

Our despatch team is working around the clock in split shifts to get your order to you as fast as possible, but there are delays. As a result of stage 4 restrictions in place in Victoria, we are currently despatching orders within 4 weeks.

Australia Post delays

Australia Post are experiencing a huge increase in demand and so there may be further delays whilst your order is in transit. 

You will receive an email from us once your order has been despatched, and a seperate email from Australia Post with your tracking number.

Where is my order?

If you HAVE NOT yet received an email from us notifying you that your order has been despatched, it will be in our queue and will be packed within 2-3 weeks from the date you ordered. If it has been longer than 4 weeks, please email and we will investigate.

If you HAVE received an email from us to say your order has been despatched, then it has left our hands and is with Australia Post. If your order is a parcel you will receive an email from them with a tracking number within a few days. 

My order has been stuck with Aus Post for quite a while, what can I do?

You can use your tracking number provided from Aust post to track your order and contact Aust post for an update if your order hasn’t moved from its location. Tracking numbers are not provided for seed-only orders, all other orders will be registered.  If you haven’t received a tracking number as yet from Aust Post and you have received an email to say your order has been despatched by us, please email our customer service team at where we will email the link for you to follow.

Will my plants travel safely in the mail? What happens if they die?

We will pack your plants well watered and well protected so they will survive several days (often longer) in transit. When they arrive they may look yellow or a little worse for ware. Please unpack immediatly and soak them in a weak seaweed solution. If your plants arrive and they have perished please email us at with a photo attached and details of your order and we will arrange a replacement or refund.

Are your retail stores still open?

An Indian spice that will grow in any frost free area. Best planted in November, with canna-like leaves emerging from the rhizome in late spring-early summer. Rhizomes are mild when dug during the growing season, stronger after the leaves have died down in the autumn. A very productive plant.

Possibly one of the most valuable of summer flowering plants. This beauty from Brazil threads its stiffly upright stems through other perennials, floating hundreds of amethyst hemispheres of bloom. Ideal for the back of the border where it softens the outline of its garden companions. Potentially invasive in disturbed bushland.
