Anyone can help me if I want to export Hakea/ Eucalyptus/ Banksia to China

Hi, I am located around Melbourne and new to this field, but some friends from China want to do this business. Does anyone have ideas on where can I find the supplier and is there any restriction I need to pay attention to? Thanks for any help !

Here is the list of some of the plants we want, and the numbers we need pre-week:

Best natives to grow in SE QLD?

Hey there,

Anyone have any experience with natives in Queensland and which may be most suitable to grow on the Gold Coast, not far from the border.

Cheers!

Looking for a mature Lilly Pilly

I’m located in NSW and looking to purchase a floribunda waterhousea sweeper. Ideally a more mature size. All the nurseries I have visited have said they have none in stock and no prospects for stock in the near future. I’ve also struggled to find one online to purchase. Does anyone have any leads?

Corymbia ficifolia help..

Any ideas as to what is happening to my street tree?

It’s a reasonable sized Corymbia ficifolia. But seems fairly stressed after a very long dry summer and autumn in Perth. It didn’t flower properly at all this season

I’ve started to give it some love with mulch and some bush Tucker and am planning to water it more regularly next spring and summer.

Plus I’ve pruned all the small epicormic growth at the bottom.

If any body has any advice, or tips and suggestions to help a stressed tree survive in these trying times in WA I’m all ears.

Tropical Climbers

New to the plant community and would love some suggestions on climber vines that grow relatively fast in Darwin NT. Tropical environment with long dry periods and heavy rainfall in the wet months. The climber would be mostly in a semi shaded/undercover area exposed to approx 3hrs a day of harsh Darwin sun and moderate heavy rains in the wet season.

Any help or recommendations would be hugely appreciated, thank you.

Can you recommend any native pond plants to attract frogs?
