Nurseries and garden centres throughout Queensland can be found in one of many ways:
- contact the local nursery association - refer to http://www.plant.id.au/AustLdsSource/associations.htm
- refer to website listings, such as in PLANT ID Registry - http://www.plant.id.au/home/registry.aspx
- do they advertise in the local gardening magazine, such as subTropical Gardening - www.stgmagazine.com.au
- check telephone book.
