We are here ‘For the Landscaper‘
We are becoming the first choice for landscape quality plants and related products in the Townsville region. We have achieved this by sourcing and selling the best quality plants, offering the largest range, and by setting a high standard for customer service and loyalty.
While we focus on being the best at serving the Townsville trade (building / landscaping / construction) industry, which helps keep our plant prices low, we are passionate about providing plants to private buyers and local gardening enthusiasts. For private purchases it helps us if you browse our online inventory and call us with any questions you have or for an appointment at our distribution centre.

As most locals know, especially from recent years, Townsville is dry for a vast majority of the year, so it makes sense to invest in plants that not only can cope with the dry but also flourish. One of our favourite water wise plants that we get in all the time is “Cousin It” (Casuarina glauca). An unusual ground cover that will be a talking point of every garden it resides in. Another great feature of the ‘Cousin It’ is that it can tolerate a wide range of soil types – even tolerant of poorly drained soils.
Despite the prolonged drought, there is still some good landscaping happening. Paul and his team from Lynams landscapes worked with Project Plants to select suitable plants (all natives for this job) for these two new homes out at Bluewattle Estate. Of course, they did all the hard work and actually planted them!
We had the opportunity and please of supplying the plants to the Salvation Army project on John Melton Black Drive in 2017. In years to come, the lush green gardens created will give its residences’ some space to enjoy and relax whilst they recover.
It is true any garden will help create a sanctuary to those smaller creatures amongst us, but there are some species that are essential in creating a useful habit for specific creatures. We are extremely lucky here in North Queensland to be home to the Cairns Birdwing and Ulysses Butterfly. It is hard not to be in awe of such beauty: Ulysses for their stunning blue colouring and fleeting movements and the Cairns Birdwing for its size, colour and grace. Three plants for any gardener and landscaper to know are the Melicope rubra (Little Evodia), Melicope elleryana (Evodia) and Aristolochia tagala (Native Dutchman’s Pipe).

We are a Trade Centre focusing on the Landscaping, Trade and Commercial. Public are welcome for those gardening jobs. Come see us, visit our online store where you can browse our current stock or call or email us today for any information you are chasing.
One of the natives we have is the The Daintree Pine (Gymnostoma australianum). This rare beauty is endemic to a restricted area of the Daintree Rainforest. A rare, native and collectable pine. Perfect for those who love to collect rare plants – it’s an added bonus that it happens to be a North Queensland native too!
Finally the rains are here and it is time to get planting! Project Plants Trade Centre is excited for the community and trade industry.
