Welcome Gardening Friends to Bryan H Tonkin, a family mail order business run by Shirley and Jane; a Mother & Daughter team.
We are situated Kalorama in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges about 30kms East of Melbourne.
Our mail order business dating back to the 1960's was borne of the late Bryan's love of rare and unusual bulbs and perennials, often unavailable in Australia. This together with his very keen interest in propagation and hybridization is the soul of the business we are endeavoring to nurture.
We pride ourselves on supplying high quality bulbs and perennials that have all been grown on our farm and NATURALISED to Australian conditions.
ON FARM NURSERY COMING SOON!!!!! Stay tuned for updates...... hoping June for galanthus!
