We pride ourselves in supplying high quality bulbs and perennials that have all been raised and grown on our farm in natural Australian conditions.


Tonkin's Bulbs & Perennials is a family business run by Jane & Shirley, situated at Kalorama in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Our Mail Order Business dating back to the 1960’s was borne of Bryan’s love for rare and unusual bulbs & perennials, often unavailable in Australia.  This together with his very keen interest in propagation & hybridization is the soul of the business that we are aspiring to nurture. 

We have a particular love for cool climate woodlanders, but also have a keen appreciation of something special for a warmer spot.

Often things are in short supply or never make the list, if there is ever anything you are chasing please do not hesitate to contact us and if we can't help we might be able to point you in the right direction.



We are Fully Accredited 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.

Please note Tasmanian customers - we will complete and send the Notice of Intention to import to Biosecurity Tas before we post your parcel.

Please note Western Australian customers inspection fees may apply in your state.




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.



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


Take care,

Jane and Shirley Tonkin
