About Plant ID
PLANT ID was created to meet the demand by the public and professional
landscape industry to provide a one-stop location to find everything.
PLANT ID provides a platform for the gardening public and professionals to
source suitable products, services and information.
PLANT ID hosts three main components:-
Plant Internet Directory… this is the
foundation to the website and provides a consumer oriented section for
gardeners and professionals to buy and sell gardening plants, to search for
hard-to-find plants, to read gardening hints, to find out about latest releases
and to access all other sections of the website.
It promotes environmental sensitive horticultural practices such as “Re-Use”
and “Re-cycle” plants, rather than dumping those plants into local bushland.
The Buy and Sell sections are ideal for garden renovations to source
‘pre-loved’ plants and to dispose of unwanted ‘pre-loved’ plants. Make money
from the plants you do not want. You can even trade a plant!
Plant ID will provide a free listing if the plant is to be given away for free,
otherwise a small fee is necessary. You can look for plants on this site for

About this website
PLANT ID was launched at the ABC Gardening Australia Live Qld show during April
2003. To date, the website has been featured on radio 2UE Sydney and 4BC
Brisbane, in addition to magazines such as Australian Horticulture, Landscape
Outlook, HMA News, Gardening Australia and various newspaper reviews.
After identifying the need to bring consumers and professionals together on a
single platform, PLANT ID was created.
Although many websites exist on the internet to provide gardening advice, PLANT
ID aims to work with those sites and professional groups, not to substitute but
rather to compliment them.
