DID YOU KNOW

* The humble Radium Weed (Euphorbia peplus) has been used through the ages to kill certain skin cancers however it was frowned on by the experts. However now that Radium Weed has been made into an expensive gel in an tube it is recommended by the experts.
* The tea you drink comes from the leaves of a camellia (Camellia sinensis). Camellia sinensis is used in commercial tea production. The varying chemical content and flavors of teas are due to different growing conditions and the fermentation processes of the leaves.
* Not all scientists agree with the global warming theories and its consequences and many that don’t are well qualified in this field.
* It takes 1.25 million orchid seeds to weigh 1 gram. Orchids have the smallest known seeds.
* 70% Of Japan is is covered in Forest. 50% of these forests are used for timber production.

 

Last Months Did You Know
* The King Fern (Angiopteris evecta) has the worlds longest fronds. Its an amazing native fern with fronds up to 7m long.
* Rainfall varies! The official rain station for Nambour is at the Dept of Agriculture grounds under Towen Mountain. Although we are only 3 km from there our rainfall is often double those under Towen Mountain. Two weeks ago we recorded 250mm for the day while friends under Towen Mtn scored only 75mm!
* The earth has more than 80000 species of edible plants!! However we only eat about thirty species the farmers choose for us…the ones they know how to mass produce efficiently.
* We do however use about 70,000 species for medicinal purposes…..many of these used in traditional medicine. However half of the drugs prescribed in the US are derived from plant species.
* So far only 1% of the earths rainforest plants have been investigated for western medicinal use.

Special People… Special Plants

We know you are special and we know you like special plants or you would not be reading this. What we did not know was that special plants create ‘special vibes’ in the garden. The vibes actually create harmony and beauty as the plant grows. Whats more these special vibes produce inspiration that will create thoughts that will make you very happy and very prosperous!

 

 

 

 

 

Gumby Gumby Leaves

Pittosporum phillyreoides syn.angustifolium
We have freshly dried leaves available now. Shown to kill cancer cells in the test tube at the University of Berlin and shown at the same institution to be a powerful immune system stimulant. Use it as a protector and immune system stimulant. You can make a tea out of it but I prefer to put 3 leaves in the Nutriblast everyday and drink it with other fruit & berries. Use a capful of Cider Vinegar to eliminate the bitter taste. Please note 40 grams is approximately 600 leaves.
….Priced at 40 grams for $38

 

 

 

 

 

Try ‘Grow Organic Fertiliser’ ….Used in our Nursery..

Delivers outstanding results every time it is applied to ornamentals, fruit and vegetables and herbs in fact anything. But there’s much more to fertiliser than meets the eye. Many ‘Fertilisers’, although supplying a stated quantity of plant available nutrients, fail to be biologically sustainable and almost without exception, create a weak link in the growing chain..

 

 

 

Heliconias Rhziomes

We have a huge list of Heliconias to choose from. Phone anytime on 0408 687 109 to discuss with Bob or see on our website. Heliconia rhizomes are sent from October to April. So it is warm enough for them to strife..

 

 

TRUE LIES

One of our customers Ray from Essendon in Victoria was wondering if his wife Barbara had a hearing problem. So one night, he stood behind her while she was sitting in her lounge chair. He spoke softly to her, “Barbara, can you hear me?” There was no response.
He moved a little closer and said again, “Barbara, can you hear me?” Still, there was no response.
Finally he moved right behind her and said, “Barbara, can you hear me?”
She replied, “For the third time, Yes!”

 

 

 

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.

Roughly every 4-6 weeks so we can put all orders together & complete the WA & NT & Tas Quarantine Protocols in one batch & minimise the cost to you.

We need your order by the 12.30 PM Tuesday 29th of May, QLD time before this date as we go through an intricate Quarantine Inspection process 7.00am Thursday & need to do this in one batch to make the process feasable.
The Quarantine Protocol cost of $10 is included in your freight charge.

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.
