Plants Plus is an Australian marketing and buying group operated on behalf of independently-owned garden centres. Each member nursery pays an annual fee for membership. In return, they trade under the Plants Plus banner, sell Plants Plus branded garden products and participate in group purchasing and marketing schemes.
Plants Plus was established in 1978 in Melbourne, Australia as the Retail Nurserymens' Products Co-operative Limited, which traded under The Nurserymen brand. The group's motto was "Your Plant Professionals". In September 1991, the Plants Plus brand was developed and replaced The Nurserymen. A new circular logo was devised which continued the use of a tree motif developed for The Nurserymen brand. The Plants Plus motto was "Knowledge. Advice. Quality".
In 1995, John Danks & Son acquired the Plants Plus brand and the Retail Nurserymens Products Co-operative Limited was subsequently dissolved. By 2000, the group had expanded into all Australian states and the Australian Capital Territory.
The current pink and green logo device was developed for Plants Plus in 2002.
Plants Plus regularly publish promotional catalogues and a subscriber-based magazine called Gardening Days.
Plants Plus manages a loyalty scheme called the Plants Plus Loyalty Club. For an annual fee, members are sent a quarterly magazine (called Gardening Days), membership card and discount vouchers which can be redeemed at any member nursery.
There are 75 Plants Plus member nurseries across Australia.
