Why We Can't Ship Some Plants
Products restricted to shipping for biosecurity reasons
Because of the risk to crops and for general biosecurity in areas which are not yet affected by these issues, nurseries are restricted from moving some plants across state borders. If you live in TAS, WA, NT, VIC or SA, these states have quarantine restrictions in place. We can still send you most other plants, if you live in QLD, NSW, ACT these restrictions don't apply.
