Bryan H Tonkin


Rare and Unusual Bulbs & Perennials


Welcome Gardening Friends to Bryan H Tonkin, a family mail order business and small retail nursery run by Shirley and Jane; a Mother & Daughter team.




We are situated at 375 Olinda Creek Rd Kalorama in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges about 30kms East of Melbourne. Please note that we are in the middle of the National Park and quite hard to find.  Please use Melway Map reference 120 C12 with online.melway.com.au as many navigation systems do not find us.


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.




We would like to thank all our customers from our Winter season for their patronage and support it is much appreciated. Our Winter list is now closed, the Summer list will be active again in mid January. If you would like to be notified by email when it goes live please email us at sales@tonkinsbulbs.com.au







We are Fully Accreditated to send bulbs/perennials to All States of Australia.  Appropriate paperwork will be sent with orders to WA, NT and TAS to Meet Quarantine Requirements.








We hope you find our on-line store an exciting approach to purchasing something special for your garden.


Happy Gardening!

Shirley and Jane Tonkin
