Each one knows where its going and who its going to so its just a matter of time until you receive its vibe!! Science has proven everthing living and non living has a vibration. While us humans mostly think in the beta and alpha brainwave states plants live in the slower theta state. If you slow yourself down however you can communicate with your plants.

DID YOU KNOW

* In the entire world there are 40,000 species of snails. In Australia there are 3000 native species!
None of the garden snails that eat our garden plants are native…they are all introduced…some 60 introduced snail species munch through our gardens. More on snails under.
* There are some 200 Amorphophallus species. They are Aroids (Aracaea Family). Amorphophallus occur naturally in  Australia, Africa, Asia & some oceanic islands.
* There are at least 16 Tacca species…Bat Plants . They formerly were in the Family Taccaceae but in 2003 were moved to the Family Dioscoreaceae. Bat Plants occur naturally in tropical areas of Australia, South America, Africa and South East Asia and some oceanic islands.
Last Months Did You Know
*Natural medicines from plants have been used for thousands of years in human cultures.
Western Medical Science is relatively new on the scene and assumes a definite arrogance about being the only way. Did you notice how most read from the same text…..And have you noticed how medicines mostly derived from the active ingredients of plants. Natural medicine using plants has a proven history although not recorded in medical science. Today we tend to revert back to natural medicines only as a last resort when western medicine has failed. The message in this is that it is easy to respect and learn from all types of methods of health practise and by using herbs & natural medicine there is a way open to us to maintain health.
*Amorphophallus species are Aroids (Aracaea Family) – yes they have a spathe and spadix just like Anthuriums, Philodendrons, Alocasias and all the other Aroids. Amorphophallus have some amazing floral arrangements and they die right down in winter to their bulb which gets bigger each year and can multiply. Amorphophallus species may not all die back at the same time…ie some species in autumn, some in winter and at least one, the Titan Arum (Amorphophallus titanum may not die back until spring.

PLANTS FROM $2.50….WE BEAT OTHERS BY 12.5%!!!

If price is your main consideration the we will accommodate you.
We decided to up the ante and beat any competitor by 12.5% not 10%.
Twenty years ago we stopped sending tiny plants in 40-50mm pots & introduced our current long 70mm pot. The 70mm pot has 4.3 times bigger volume than a 50mm pot and we can grow a plant 4 times the size in it and that’s what we do!
As other suppliers have come in and do offer the 45-50mm pot we are giving you the opportunity to buy this size also. And our price for these tiny plants is less than any other selling the same size plant. If you find a commercial business paying GST with a lower price we will beat it by 12.5%.

 

 

More About the Fascinating World of Snails
Did you know that a snail has some 15,000 teeth? Oh yes they do according to Dr John Stanisic aka the Snail Whisperer. If you listened to the ABC podcasts you would know this also!
Snails are hermaphrodites ie male and female sex organs on the one snail…up near their eyes. However they still have sex with a mate and this ritual is not rushed taking a couple of hours. Snails generally live from 5-15 years while some of the desert snails can live 50 years!
Of the 60 introduced species in Australia that eat our gardens the biggest is the African Snail up to about a foot long. However the Giant African Snail in Africa is a different species and grows much bigger!!
There are some 3000 snail species native to Australia and none of these eat fresh plants! You will usually find them under logs and in rock crevices. They all digest forest detritus and turn it into mulch while some are leaf cleaners digesting exudates on the leaves of our trees. Snails lay their eggs in the soil.
Slugs are snails without shells and emerged from the oceans some 220 million years back when they started developing a shell for protection.
Re Terrestial Diversity (Land) 95% of all animals are invertebrates (no backbone) and 6% of these are snails! Dr Stanisic recently named a newly discovered snail Helix peterbrockii because the shell had GT stripes and it was a fast slider!! HAIL THE SNAIL

 

 

MIRACLES DO HAPPEN and so do Little Miracles

The five Miracles my mother sent me that were at the odds of one Million to one.
I regard something a miracle when you cant understand a causal agent and figure the odds of it happening randomly at something like one million to 1. After my mother passed away last year I asked her to send me some messages about how she was.

1. The second my mother passed on from our earth last year I was overwhelmed by an amazing feeling of peace, serenity and oneness. The thing was I was 900km away!
I rate that at one Million to One in my experiences.

2. Soon after ….we were driving last year in Southern NSW and the ‘end of a rainbow’ appeared in a paddock about 100m off the road. As we drove on …the ‘end of the rainbow’ came closer and closer to the road until finally the ‘end of the rainbow’ was actually in our car for a few seconds. That was unbelievable and I rate that a One Million  to One Chance.

3. On our way home I decided to search for the land where my mother was brought up almost 100 years back on a dairy farm west of Wingham NSW near a place called Wherrol Flat. Her family had tried to find it without success. It was as if i was guided…asking locals I pin pointed where it must be.. over Caparra Creek… the locals said don’t go there the guy over there hunts anyone crossing the creek away with a shotgun! The next day we crossed that creek and were greeted by that gentleman with a big smile! Studying that beautiful valley with its bluegums and bellbirds and the old orchard and dairy and house site it was as if I was back there 100 years ago…could see them all…could see it all. I rate the chance of all that at very long odds a Little Miracle.

4. When we got back to Nambour I was having some arbitrage bets where you make a profit from backing a horse to win and then laying it to lose resulting in a small profit. So I had $100 on a horse to win at $6.00. But when I went to lay it my computer jammed and I could not get the lay bet on. I would rarely risk $100 on a horse but here i was stuck with the bet! Expecting such a longshot to not win I was not happy but to my amazement the horse came home giving me a $500 straight profit! My computer never stuck like that before and just at the wrong time. I rate this a one Million to one Chance! My mother often had a bet and we often discussed them. She was betting on her iPad the day before she passed away.

5. The following Saturday I decided to do some more arbitrage betting. Now its hard to believe but exactly the same thing happened again! I have never had the same malfunction again! I rate the chance of this happening two weeks in a row at 10 million to one.

So you see one of those was at the odds of a Little Miracle & thats the one I would like to talk about ‘The Little Miracle’.  Every day we might recognise a lucky escape or plain good luck that can confirm assistance from ‘the other side’. We only have to be open to the possibility to recognise it. On the other hand right in our backyards there are Little Miracles going on all the time. They call it nature and the cycle of life. Like any Miracle you will not receive it and you will not understand it unless you are open to it. If we are open to it and study the cycles of plants and nature itself we receive Little Miracles every day plus the occasional BIG ONE.

TRUE LIES

Last week down at Nambours Bison Bar a fellow walks in with a small dog. The waiter says, “Sir, I’m very sorry, but we don’t allow dogs in here.”
The fellow replies, “But this isn’t just any dog … this dog can play the piano!”
The waiter responds, “Well, if he can play that piano, you both can stay and have a meal on the house!” So the gentleman sits the dog on the piano stool, and the dog starts playing. Ragtime, Mozart … and the waiter and patrons are enjoying the music. Suddenly a bigger dog runs in, grabs the small dog by the scruff of the neck, and drags him out. The waiter asks the fellow, “What was that all about?”
He replied, “Oh, that was his mother. She wanted him to be a doctor.”

 

 

 

Please write down your Password and Username.

Yes, we know from experience that we always tell ourselves we will remember it….but do we? And its often the Username that gets muddled up the most. Just think most people seem to have 3 usernames and three passwords they commonly use…..so that means there are 9 different ways these can be combined and that’s why its so easy to use the wrong one if you don’t record it. If you have completely forgotten which one you can easily call us we will take you off completely and you can register.

 

Combined Postage/Shipping
We do combine postage/shipping with all our orders. This means you can buy as many plants as you like for a single postage/shipping price. eg, in NSW you might buy 100 plants for $16 freight.
Our Plants are not sent Bare Rooted
All our plants are sent in pots. Mostly in a pot of 70mm diameters and 110mm deep. This pot is 4 times the volume of the tiny 40mm tubes that many other suppliers use. Our Ferns are sent in 100mm pots. * Very large plants from large pots (Bamboo, Fiddle Leaf Fig, Heliconias) may be sent bare rooted.
However we do supply some Tiny plants for $3.90 to satisfy customers who like small prices. These plants are specified as Tiny Plants for Tiny Prices and are priced at $3.90.

Hoya Ideas

Find a place where you can run some horizontal tie wires and run between two posts, trees or whatever. Run a tie wire about every 25-30cm and where the wires meet the post attach a pot of hoya of the climbing variety. You can strap them on or nail the pots on. Let the hoyas run along the wires as they grow. Vines that run horizontally produce more flowers than those running vertically.

Mrytle Rust Alert now affects some plants into the NT & SA, Tas as well as WA…..which means we cannot sent plants from Family Myrtacea to these states. Restrictions will soon be lifted in Victoria as Myrtle Rust has been found in 60 locations. In reality it has probably been around Australia the last 100 years but it needs a very wet year to be noticeable.

…WA & SA, Tas & NT Customers….

There is an very old alert for Myrtle Rust still standing in WA & NT the following potential host genus are not allowed entry for probably an extended period:
Austromyrtus, Callistemon, Eugenia, Feijoa, Kunzea, Leptospermum, Melaleuca, Myrciaria, Psidium, Syzygium, Xanthostemon, Rhodomyrtus.
These are the plants that may appear in our catalogue & is not the complete list. The complete list includes all the Family Myrtaceae. It was hoped this would be a short term measure…..but the authorities are in no rush to take action that would lead to lift the restriction.

There are other plants that are not permitted into WA for various reasons. We get all our plants approved by the State Dept of Agricultures when sending.

Here are a few more for your information.

Euphorbia species, Citrus species, Microcitrus species, Hibiscus species, Azalea species, Feijoa species, Vaccinium species Blueberry, Rhododendron, Vireya.
