Platypus Plants is hands down the best quality, most affordable option for anyone buying plants within the SE QLD region. Karli and Marvin clearly care about their work, plants and customers. Despite the name of the business, there isn’t a big bill in sight. But, like a Platypus, they’re a hidden gem of a company.

- Insane value for money. The plants are in great condition, much bigger than expected, and have clearly been handled with love and care (including in transit).

- Uh, I am sorry - THE DELIVERY COSTS ARE INSANELY CHEAP. There’s a post below from someone, who I can only assume has made an error on the website, making some crazy rant about $100 delivery fees. That’s not the case. The nearest price to those from Platypus Plants was $50+ delivery. I got 18 large plants delivered for $20. Platypus Plants has a flat rate, and they are delivered BY the team themselves. No contractors. No dramas. I was drowning in plants within 48 hours of making an order. There are minimum delivery orders, but they are very reasonable imho.

- Aftercare is second to none. Karli and Marvin clearly know their stuff on plants, and Karli is trained in horticulture. They provide a handy cute little handout on how to look after my new lillypillies and other plants.

I’ll be telling everyone I know about these folks…but I don’t want them to get too popular because I might want to buy more from ‘em!

Wow Dale, thank you so much for the glowing review!
