Our Story

Our name: Platypus Plants, was inspired by our love of plants and the idea that we wanted to contribute to the conservation of the Platypus.

We've made the promise that with every sale we make, a portion of the proceeds will go to an Australian conservation group. At the end of every month we'll post on our social media profiles which charity we’ve donated to, so be sure to follow us!

We’re committed to providing quality plants at low prices and have access to an extensive network of top-quality nurseries. We’re also supported by reliable transport companies, as well as owning a fully enclosed van that we do deliveries in, so we can guarantee your plants will arrive quickly and with care.

Our Business Principles

Convenience.

The convenience of buying online and getting plants delivered to you, without the hassle.

Quality.

Knowing that when you buy from us, you’re getting the best quality plants on the market.

Trust.

We deliver when we say we’ll deliver and with care. Any advice we give you is with your best interests at heart.

The Team

Karli

“I started working in my parents nursery at the age of 16. From there my love for plants grew and have since worked at some of the most prestigious gardens in Australia.

I’ve gained a Certificate III in Parks & Gardens and Conservation & Ecosystem Management, having also worked on various conservation projects.

I’m now studying an Advanced Certificate in Garden Design which will further assist us in providing the best plant information to our customers!”

“My first job was at ‘The Big Green Shed’, so I’ve always enjoyed helping people find the right solution.

Customer service is at the forefront of everything I do and so every day I’m striving for Platypus Plants to be the best in the industry. Plus we’re able to give back to great causes, while sharing our passion for plants.”
