I have been purchasing plants from Peter for 15 years. He has always given freely of his time and experience in the field to describe habitats and provide cultural information. His collection is second to none, and one of the few places to buy rare cycads in Australia, both offsets and seedlings."

Stephen Land

To anyone with an interest in cycads and/ or who wants help to expand their cycad collection the best help I have found over the last decade and more is Peter Heibloem. He has supplied me many rare species of seed at very fair prices.He can supply a CITES Export permit where needed and not many others can do that.He supplies seeds from his garden so they don't come via many seed merchants who don't stand behind their product like Peter does.He would rather not supply seeds if he is in doubt .Many people in NZ have plants grown from his seed. For many years I was responsible for distributing cycad seeds from New Zealand Palm & Cycad Society seedbank.For me the best deals were from Peter with the best results! We are now unable to import cycad plants from Australia due to another supplier mucking it up for importing, many years ago, If we could still import cycads I know many more gardens here would be full of plants from Eudlo Cycad Gardens!

"I am one of the many very satisfied customers of Peter Heibloom of the Cycad Gardens of Eudlo. His collection of cycads is very impressive and I made my initial purchase of ungerminated seeds. After a couple of correspondences and seeing his list of seedlings and the incredibly cheaper price (compared to growers I visit in Thailand and the Philippines), I told myself that I have to visit his garden. I took the train from Brisbane and headed to Eudlo. Peter was kind enough to pick me up at the train station. His garden is much more impressive than the pictures on his website and I was like a kid in a candy store. The various cycads in his collection growing in Eudlo's sloping terrain were truly amazing and spectacular. He and his wife Clare even offered some home cooked soup (yummy) and bread while waiting for my purchase to be packed. I surely envy the collection Peter has! Peter is a very honest and reliable person to deal with and is very generous in giving me pointers on the growing and caring of the cycads. I ended up buying more than what I originally plan to get as some other varieties were unbelievably cheap. Peter was also generous in giving discounts (as I purchased a lot). My cycads are growing quite well in my garden in the Philippines. I hope I can visit his cycad paradise again."

"I have found Cycad Gardens to be one of the best specialist nurseries to deal with in the country. Peter and his team are renowned for stocking particular and quality plants that cant be easily found any where else. That combined with such generous advice and plants that arrive in perfect condition are the reasons why Cycad Gardens will always be at the top of our suppliers list."

Cycads are my love/addiction!. Here in Slovakia our climate is extreme for growing the cycads in the middle of Europe. Therefore,when buying plants, much depends on the health/condition of the plant. Peter, I must to write to say the plants from you are AMAZING !!! They are in perfect condition, they are healthy and I am very grateful for the whole process from the selection of plants you did for me, to the freighting. Each plants was safely and carefully wrapped in their boxes. Thank you for your care when packing. You have awesome cycads and it's a pleasure to do business with you. I look forward to selecting other plants from you.And... Thank you for all your valued advice !!!

Originating from the continent of the Encephalartos cycad, I have been an enthusiast of these magnificent plants for the last 14 years. Eudlo Cycad Gardens sets itself apart in Australia from other cycad dealers and nurseries in that it is the only cycad nursery in the whole of the Asia Pacific, which offers the wide number and variety of very rare Encephalartos cycad species,both from off-sets to seedlings. Visiting Eudlo cycad gardens is without a doubt, each time, a memorable experience as some of the rarest plants can be seen growing in all their splendor. Owner Peter Heibloem is a world renowned and respected specialist on the Central African cycad species, who I have found always to be very helpful and willing to share his vast knowledge in terms of cycad species identification, demographics, cultivation and growing of healthy cycads. I have been a returning customer to Eudlo Cycad Gardens for the past 7 years and have obtained many Encephalartos cycad off-sets for my garden over the years. I have always been excited and happy with the quality of the plants and service.

Renier Smit

am a part time Encephalartos hobbyist and have been purchasing specimens from Peter (Heibloem) on a regular basis during the past three and half years. What impresses me most about his business is, firstly, his very strong service and customer support orientation and, secondly, the simply outstanding quality (health) of the plant specimens provided. My orders have been processed and despatched with great care and efficiency. These considerations make business with him an absolute pleasure.

Dr Chris van Tonder

I have always been happy with the plants and seed I have purchased from you. The seed has germinated well and the plants have been well established, quality plants - it is a bonus to be able to purchase pups of known sex.

Heather Knowles

Congratulation for new website. The last seeds from you were very good . Also I would like to thank you for all your advice to help me to learn about how and when to plant them. Once more thank you very much for your support and your generosity .

Ibrahim El Shamy

I have been getting cycad plants, seedlings and offsets from Peter Heibloem of Eudlo Cycad Gardens for several years. Peter has been a reliable supplier and the plants that I have received from him have been well grown and also well packed. His efforts in cycad propagation have ensured that many cycad species have been made available to the Australian market by a local supplier so that enthusiasts do not have to go to the trouble of procuring them from overseas.

Mike Huff

Premier Palms has been buying cycads and cycad seed from Eudlo Cycad Gardens for a long time. We have had the best service and advice and whenever we need information regarding cycads Peter is always willing to help. Quality of stock is always good, deliveries are on time, and they have a large variety at very competitive prices. Always a pleasure dealing with the Eudlo Cycad Gardens team.Kind Regards Richard and Memory Reay

Premier Palms

started buying seeds off Peter about 6 years ago. I went and visited his amazing garden and have found Peter to always be open with his knowledge of cycads. I found his garden a ‘must see’ due to the rarity of plants and the reality of seeing Africa, outside of Africa. His passion for the cycad world is contagious. All my dealings with Peter have been easy and successful. He is a wealth of knowledge with importing seeds and has always given me accurate growing advice. I hope to continue this relationship with Peter for years to come.

Darren Mahon
