Welcome to Australian Plants Online...
Over Twenty Years of Plant Growing Expertise
At Australian Plants Online we’ve been producing and growing plants for over twenty years.
Our propagation staff are experts, renowned for propagating even the trickiest of plants – which means we can offer you low cost tubestock plants that elsewhere you’d pay large amounts for.
We have over 400 lines, throughout the year, so some plants we also source from trusted specialist nurseries, to give you the widest choice and ensure we have steady stock levels.
Industry Accredited and Trusted
APO is accredited by NIASA – the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia – which means that our nursery adheres to national industry Best Practice Guidelines.
Our plants are raised on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland – the premier tubestock production area of Australia (and a beautiful place to visit!)
In our first two years selling online we served almost two thousand happy gardeners. We've now mailed almost 300,000 plants across eastern Australia.
Complete Order Flexibility
You can order just one single plant, if you want to. (It's more cost-effective in postage if you order more.) There';s no minimum order.
You can order one hundred plants (if we have them in stock!) APO has no maximum order limit.
You can order one passionflower, one philodendron, one palm tree. It's your choice. If you only want one, you can just order one. We don't force you to buy in bulk.
Because we sell direct from our nursery to you, you get great cost savings on your plants.
Tube stock are fantastic value plants, low cost to buy, and fast growing – so they catch up quickly to more expensive potted plants. Their roots are young and fresh, so they do not suffer from being ‘pot bound’ as larger potted plants can do.
If you order over $165-worth of plants, postage and packing is free. You also get 10% off your next order when you first order from us, as a thank you.
If you live near the nursery, you can collect your order from us if you prefer. Just check the box at Checkout and we'll call you to arrange a pickup time.
Sign up to our free e-newsletter and you’ll get advance notice of any promotions we run through the year too!
We designed our packaging ourselves so it fits our pots perfectly. It’s super-sturdy and made to measure.
Our packing team carefully selects, labels, packs and tapes your plants in place so they reach you in the best condition possible.
We boast that they are “Australia Post Proof!” and our customers agree.
Widest Range of Plants

If you are looking for something in particular please drop us a line, or check our Facebook and Instagram updates. Your plant might just be taking a break off-site for the season, coming back soon; or it might be something we don’t yet stock but we can source for you.
