About Us

Plants by Adam is a boutique grower of quality vegetable seedlings, bedding annuals and other potted plants for sale at community markets within the Melbourne area.

Here at Plants by Adam, we produce all of our own stock —you won’t catch us engaging with large wholesalers!

We stock a wide range of rarer and unusual species in addition to popular favourites. We are able to supply a unique range of plants at reasonable prices. All of our stock is grown to the highest standards with the best quality materials. When you visit our beautifully-arranged undercover market stall, you will see fresh and healthy products displayed with colour signage describing each species' cultural requirements. Every plant comes with a label. You simply won't be disappointed with our compelling selection of plants.

Whilst we’re currently limited to selling at markets, we plan to expand into online sales very soon.

If you think that we might be able to supply you with something, please don’t hesitate to contact us as we will contract grow and may be able to fulfil special orders. We sell plants in a range of sizes up to 150mm pots as well as hanging baskets.


Plants by Adam is a husband-and-wife team of Adam Dimech and Kerya Hang. Plants by Adam was established in early 2014 to provide an outlet for the couple to sell vegetable seedlings, bedding annuals and other plants to the public.
