Home Garden Waterwise Rebate Scheme
The Queensland Government is offering up to a $50 rebate when you purchase drought tolerant plants. It works like this you get 50% off any plant that your nursery recommends as drought tolerant. This is capped once the rebate reaches $50. It is open for both renters (OK it with your landlord) and of course home owners. (Full Details)

Further Discussion about the scheme
In the last few years there has been more talk about looking after our environment. The best ways are usually:
1. Use our resources wisely.
2. Plant trees suitable for their climate.
The Queensland Government Home Garden Rebate we think is the best response yet because rather then just rebates on energy efficient washing machines, water tanks etc They actually are encouraging the people in their state to plant more trees. (of course we are biased to this solution) If you are from another state why not ask your local member to do something similar.
How it works: Click to go to our Queensland Home Garden Waterwise Web Page and add any of the plants on this page to your shopping cart. You will notice that each item when added to your shopping cart will have underneath it "Suitable for the QLD Waterwise Rebate Scheme".
When we mail order your plants to you we will include this invoice with the plants. You then fill out this form and attach your invoice and send it to: Home WaterWise Rebate Scheme, GPO Box 2454, Brisbane, QLD, 4001. And they will send you back up to $50.
You can certainly order other plants from us such as fruit trees that are not suitable for the scheme on the same invoice. However only the plants marked "Suitable for the QLD Waterwise Rebate Scheme" will receive the 50% rebate.
