Shipping information


Plant your Diggers plants and bulbs with confidence they will succeed. At Diggers we trial all our plants for garden worthiness, discarding any that do not perform well, or flower too briefly. Use our Heat and Cold Zones together with our ‘drip’ system, to make informed choices on which plants suit your climate and water availability.

At Heronswood and St Erth we not only trial perennials, but create gardens to show visitors how to use them to best advantage. Our gardens are open all year round so you can visit and see how our plantings stand up to Australia’s varying climate. 

Plants by mail

We send plants by Australia Post from January to November. Our plants are packed in trays that fit in robust boxes to ensure your purchase arrives in the best possible condition. We send our plants anywhere from Hobart to Darwin and you can order online from the comfort of your own home.

Payment is made at the time of ordering and you will receive an email when components of your order are despatched. Gardeners who do not wish to join the Diggers Club are more than welcome to purchase at marked retail prices. Be sure to get in early for bulk orders.

Returns policy

All goods are shipped in good order. Some plants may be dormant when you receive them so check the label. If goods are damaged in the post, or if your plant has not performed as expected (before 90 days) we will happily replace it. 

Please ring the office with your order number and we will arrange to have the goods returned and either resent or credited. Please note our policy on living product extends to those selected for your appropriate climate zone and where enclosed instructions have been followed.
