It was a very nice surprise when my three very healthy Buxus plants were waiting for me early this morning. I love the range, quality and service of The Australian Plant shop and am most definitely a loyal customer as other providers don't even come close.
Prompt delivery and plants exactly as described. Happy customer.
i bought three plants and each one is literally perfectly luscious, green and healthy. ive already replanted them in my garden and cant wait to see them flourish.
they smell fantastic and they look brilliant.
well done guys !!
you will be my first port of call for anything further
The most beautiful fern
Delivered with care
So heelthy and large I was suprised
But absolutely recommend buying all your plants from here
Cheaper than any nursery or plant shop
And much better quality.
My Fiddly Fig has finally decided to have it's last tantrum - nothing made it happy and all the research and care I put into it came to nothing. Of all my plants, it is the most demanding. I ordered the Banyan Tree and it's tall! The bark is a beautiful silver and the leaves are strong - it is such a healthy, majestic plant. Hopefully the fiddly fig ups its game now there's a contender for my affections in the house (but knowing the fiddly fig, it'll probably drop another leaf in protest). Thank you for such a healthy, beautiful plant, sorry, tree! :)
Hello I ordered some goldfish plants. I was very surprise ohow nice and grown they were. I bought the same 2 weeks ago at Power Flower and I pay ex a fly the double.
Thanks very much I will buy again
The plant I rec’d via online order was well established, healthy and rather quite stunning. More than I hoped for. Will certainly be using these guys again for those difficult to get Australian plants.
First time buyer and I was very pleased with the service and delivery. Miya was very informative and enthusiastic in letting me know how to care and manage the plant.
As it was an expensive plant I was worried they might have chosen a smaller size but that was not the case. It was big, beautiful and left a delightful impression. Love at first sight even.
I will definitely buy again!
The plants arrived promptly.Plenty of communication regarding delivery.Plants in great condition and great value for money.Very reasonable delivery fees .Overall very happy with the purchase.
I have placed two orders in one months! Couldn't be any happier.
My absolute favourite Azalea, a beautiful hardy plant. When in season, loves showing off its many pretty pink blooms.
I am so happy with my plants that I received. Miya went over and beyond to source these plants that I was after as they are quite rare to find. The communication was outstanding. I picked up my plants and was overwhelmed with how healthy and beautiful they were. Thank you so much I can highly recommend this nursery.
These plants are hard to find. The Australian Plant Shop delivered my plant in perfect condition. Looking forward to caring and watching this plant produce its best during early spring.
The service was great.
My flowers delivered by this afternoon.
The Screenmaster condition provided in the two orders I've made were of a high quality. It's bee a challenge to get goo quality stock and TAPS delivered.
