Delivery Times

There are numerous factors which might take time and delay delivery, some caused by us, some by the customer and some by situations out of our control.

Ordering can be done online within 10 minutes however if we are required to search our nursery for frangipanis with specific features, it’s more like to take days. We try to reply to customers with photos and information within 24 hours but, depending on the weather and how busy we are, it sometimes takes us a few days or more.
Payment instructions are emailed to the customer with order details automatically as soon as an order is placed online so customers can pay straight away. If a customer modifies their online order or submits an order via email, we will email payment instructions as soon as the customer has confirmed their order.
Transportation Bookings can be made as soon as we receive a remittance or a simple message that the customer has paid. We will send an email to a horticultural transport company who usually reply within 24 hours. If we are trying to combine orders to deliver ourselves, we might take up to 7 days. If a frangipani is taller than 2.5m or wider than 1m, we might need to take extra time to confirm the best method and costs.
Frangipani Order Pick Ups are usually booked 1 to 6 days later. Only orders going to distant or unpopulated destinations have a possibility of taking longer.
Frangipani Delivery within South east Queensland is often the next day. Deliveries to Sydney are usually 2 or 3 days after collection.

What Size Frangipani is Best?

I often get asked “What size frangipani should I get? This depends on each person’s (or couple’s) situation so I usually ask some questions before giving any advice at all. I have group the questions I usually ask into 5 subjects, or factors. Here are the five factors to consider if you are wondering what size frangipani to purchase.

  1. Your Plan.
  2. Prices.
  3. Value for money.
  4. Your budget.
  5. Transportation.

1-Your Plan

Some people prefer to be patient and enjoy watching their garden develop naturally while others are focussed on creating an established garden as soon as possible. If you are worried about your frangipani growing too big, don’t worry. Frangipanis can easily be pruned or cropped.


You can walk into almost any nursery in spring and find a range of frangipani plants. For around $10, you can get a single stem frangipani in a 125mm pot. $20-$30 can buy a multi-branched frangipani in a 200mm pot. $40-$70 can buy a frangipani around or just under 1m tall. Our frangipani plants priced under $100 can only be purchased in bulk or with a frangipani tree order. Most frangipanis in 400mm pots and 45 litre bags are over 1m tall and priced between $150-$200. Ours 45 litre frangipanis are as cheap as $90.

3-Value For Money

Considering the price of frangipanis (as above), we recommend small trees (1m-1.5m) as the best value. We try our best to stock and sell frangipanis around this size and aim to sell them a little cheaper than other nurseries.
We also aim to sell our small frangipani plants cheaply as add-ons or in groups.
Frangipanis are very hardy but there are ways to purposefully or accidently kill them. Generally speaking, the larger the frangipani, the stronger and hardier it will be.

4-Your Budget

If your budget is less than $100, we suggest purchasing from your local retail plant nursery and take your frangipani home in your car.
If you plan to spend more than $100 on a frangipani tree, we recommend looking at our online frangipani tree to start.


The minimum transport fee includes a 1m x 1m square space and up to 2.6m high. The closer you are to the Sunshine Coast, the cheaper delivery fee is.
