Charity shops (unlikely), jumble sales (even more unlikely), car boot sales.

Pound shops etc. You sometimes get bits of artificial foliage in home decor depts. We found a sort of "door curtain" type affair with lots of strings of hanging leaves/vines that took to bits easily.

I got a bunch from pound shops but my best source was "The Range" in their aquarium section. Plenty of plants at a reasonable price.

If you have any of the larger pet shop chains, or decent garden centres which offer supplies for pets etc, you might be able to find some. Otherwise, there are some cheap online sellers, eg:

I've got a fair bit of stuff from Battlefield Architect on Ebay. They are in these pics (plus some bits from Grimm too).

I made my own from aquarium plants, I found getting them from America was cheaper than buying from my local Pet City, even with the postage.





full details and where to order the plants from here:

Here's my jungle vegitation made from plastic flower pieces / arrangements. They always seem to be 40% off at the local larger craft stores.



Also Palm Trees from Bake shop supplier



I have articles in my Terrain Making section on how I assembled them.

Overlord made some cool ones with CD bases, wall filler and some plants from Hobbycraft I believe...

Sold a bunch of them at our show some years back.

Poundworld (not Poundland) is selling a range of plastic potted plants at the minute, which are great for jungle scenery. You get a lot of greenery for your Pound, even better value than aquarium plants.

I used flower shop plastic plants, I spent $22aus on them, stuck them onto polystrene bases for a one off game and made them all in one night.
