Plant Trust Collection FAQ’s

I reckon I might have a suitable plant collection. How can I register it with the Plant Trust?

We are keen to hear from you. Please contact our Administrative Officer on Mondays between 9.30am and 5pm. Telephone: (03) 9650 5639 or email:

I’m a keen gardener and would love to start a plant collection. Where would I begin?

We suggest starting by giving some consideration to what plant species or grouping most interests you, as well as the size of the species or grouping and also the amount of room you have in your garden to grow and maintain a collection. Take a look at our Handbook and seek inspiration from What is a Plant Collection?

Do I have to be a Collection Holder to be a member of Plant Trust?

No, you do not have to hold a plant collection to belong to Plant Trust. Indeed many of our members do not hold collections but are passionate about our contributing to the conservation of Australia’s rich and diverse plant life.
