Paul Plant’s personal website:

Born in Brisbane, Paul undertook his horticultural degree qualification at University of Queensland Gatton Campus (formally known as Gatton Agricultural College) back in the '80s.

Paul has worked as a nurseryperson, landscaper and interior plantscaper, and has been involved in training, garden judging and guest speaker roles. He is well known for experimenting with plants to see what works and what does not in his gardens.

Paul has assisted in the research and editing of over 19 books (gardening and non-gardening titles) and many gardening magazines (periodicals and single titles). The website PLANT ID ( was created about 10 years ago to assist gardeners to source information, contact businesses and find local products.

Periodically heard on radio 4BC in recent years as the stand-in for Colin Campbell, Paul now does a small Garden Tip for local 94.9 RiverFM each Saturday morning. He has also been seen as a guest 'garden guru' on Channel 9's EXTRA program.

As a qualified horticulturist, Paul is frequently hired as a consultant to assess the effectiveness and client-value of landscape designs for private gardens and commercial sites. To hire Paul, use the CONTACT page on this website.

As Editor of subTropical Gardening his aim is to bring the passion, the interest and the knowledge behind horticulture to the gardening public who live in the subtropics, tropics and warm climate areas of Australia and beyond.
