Posting Dragon Fruit Cutting to WA, TAS AND NT require plant spraying and plant health certificate.
There are 2 ways of doing this
#1 Use a outside quarantine service
- $17/plant handling fee (additional costs for plants larger than 40cm)- $20 quarantine fee (plus $2 for each additional plant)- $45 postage to WA and Tas, $55 postage to NT (can post around 10 plants per box)
More details and the plant submit form can be found on the website - https://www.rareplants.net.au/quarantine-concierge-service/
- The service runs every three weeks, the website lists sending dates (the date which the plants are treated with chemicals and sent out to customers)- Customers need to email a Concierge Plant Submit Form (customer info and plant list) by the specified date (due around a week before the sending date)- The plants need to arrive to the quarantine facility, with scientific name on the label, between 28-10 days before the sending date
- Once they receive the form they will send an invoice to be paid in advance
#2 Contact us:
We have sent dragon fruit cutting to the Northern Territory Government to study commercial growing of dragon fruit plants . To post these dragon fruit cuttings we had to attend the Queensland Department of Primary Industries and spray plants in front of their officer.
This also is not a cheap process.
We try to save you money by only charging you only the fuel for us to drive the 3 hrs return trip to Bundaberg.
The D.P.I charge $250 per hour plus GST.
Spay costs $25.00
But this would be the most affordable way to send bulk cuttings.
Extra postage charges for postage may apply.
