Mail Order Plants in Tasmania

Raithby Plant Nursery has a unique plant range. The nursery is now closed to visitors. Visits to the garden and plant sales will recommence in the 1st week in September 2019.

In 2019 the Nursery will not be offering a mail order service. We will continue to welcome visitors to our garden (September till March).

This change in service is due to an increased demand in the maintenance of the garden and various plant collections.  We also need to undertake several related projects. In particular, the organisation, mapping and cataloguing of our plant collection and updating the Plant Profile section of the website. 

Kind regards and best wishes

Raithby Plant Nursery – for those hard-to-find plants

We are a Launceston-based nursery that offers a range of plants not found in mainstream garden centres.

The majority of our plants are grown from seed purchased from specialist collectors based in Europe, China, Japan and North America. These include a range of hardy perennials, species clematis and bulbs, with many suitable for pots, tubs and rockeries.

For those who are able to visit our nursery and garden (September till March), we have a dedicated area for visitors to make their selections.

Our Nursery

We are located at 128 Alanvale Road, Newnham.

Our nursery and garden are open to the public by appointment from the first week in September until the end of March.

If you are not sure on directions to find us, or have a query about mail order, please contact us by email on or by phoning 0408 507 895.
