Paulette Whitney's Provenance Growers blog: A blog about growing and appreciating local Tasmanian plants.

Australian Plants Society of Tasmania: Join this society to learn more about growing and understanding Tasmanian and other Australian plants. This link is to the Hobart group. There are also groups in Kingborough, Launceston and the north-west.

Understorey Network: This group supports growers of native plants used to revegetate the forest understorey. We highly recommend supporting this group.

Greening Australia: An Australia-wide group that is dedicated to re-greening the Australian landscape through planting trees and shrubs. Greening Australia is very active in Tasmania, and we highly recommend supporting them.

Here is site that tests your plant recognition skills. It is designed for Australian plants in general, so will include many plants that don't grow down here.

Other Ridgeway Nurseries

Island Bonsai: Many Tasmanian plants are suited to bonsai. Will Fletcher, who started Plants of Tasmanian Nursery, runs this nursery just up the road from Plants of Tasmania. Visit him on the second weekend of each month to view his amazing plants, and buy inspirational pots and other bonsai equipment.

Jubilee Nursery: Unfortunately the rhodo nursery that was next door has now closed.
