Buying Native Plants


Native Plants Markets

Each year, we hold a two-day Spring Wildflower Show and Native Plants Market at Brisbane's Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens, and an Autumn Native Plants Market in Keperra.

Plants are available at low prices, from tubes to mature plants, offering a huge range suitable for every garden situation. Expert advice on selection and care is available from the growers as well as the knowledgeable members of the society. Many branches also hold local flower shows and plant markets throughout the year. Stay updated here, and by signing up to our mailing list.

Member Seed Bank

Members are entitled to receive free seed from the Native Plants Queensland Seed Bank, allowing the propagation of many species that are not otherwise readily available. In doing so, members obtain valuable information on the germination and cultivation of these species under different conditions.

Seed held in the Seed Bank is donated by members, so availability can be variable.
