Diabetes Plant Scientific Review
…..Show this to Your GP….

Gynura procumbens
On our website we now include a scientific review of the scientific studies done on this plant and you will be surprisednot only that this plant has been scientifically shown to be an effective blood glucose balancer. But also.
…..can be used against Cancer….
…..can be used against infection
…..can be used in reproductive Health
There has been a lot of research done on this plant because of its success in eastern Medicine. However the Pharmaceutical Company scientists have been unable to discover the chemical pathways that lead to its success. Because of its complexity it has been too difficult to unravel its multitudinal pathways and so it has not been possible to commercialize it to sell as a drug.

Copy this report straight off our website where the Diabetes Plant appears or if you are Technologically challenged we can add a copy with your order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TURN WINTER INTO SPRING – Try our Organic Fertiliser

We have a new natural product from ‘Grow’ that will benefit your plants greatly through winter as you do not need hot weather to get it going. It consists of a mix of natural microflora that will benefit your plants in many ways from helping to absorb nutrients from the soil or potting mix to protecting the plant from disease and harsh weather. Watch your plants smile in the middle of winter. Just mix a pinch of the powder in a watering can of water and water it in. The results will be better growth, stronger healthier plants and more and longer flowering and fruiting. The product is called Grow!

 

 

 

 

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..

Available in 1, 2.5, 10 and 20 litre bottle. This is concentrated fertiliser so Mix at a ratio of 100:1 with water!
One Litre $16.50, 2.5 Litre $24, 10 Litre $84, 20 Litre $154

 

 

 

 

New Ferns

For the next few months we have some completely new ferns. We have grown these in 90mm pots rather than the 110 mm pots we normally use. For this reason we have reduced the price in accordance with the slightly lower cost. Our Maidenhairs are always available but in the larger 110mm pot.

 

 

 

 

Jujubes

Our first shipment has come and gone. Put your name down for the next shipment of Li Jujube in January. This is the latest cultivar from China. Can easily get 1000 fruits on one little tree. They are delicious and take the coldest and hottest climates. Its worth the wait.

We are happy to take backorders for other States

Cocopeat Fibre….Coir Peat…..Coir …all the same thing

….(not to be confused with coconut fibre used to line hanging baskets)
Cocopeat Fibre is being found to be a useful potting media for many different types of plant. The coconut fibres are compressed into 5Kg blocks which when wet expand to 60litres of mix.
I comes in 3 forms :
You must be careful which one you use.
There is the fine one called Pith….100% fines…from the inner core of the coconut shell…used as a mix with other fibres or in seed raising. Holds moisture very close to the roots
Then there is the chip…nearly 100%…chipped straight from the outerlayers of the coconut shell. This can be used for orchids and other epiphytes. Also garden mulch …an expensive one! The chips hold a lot of moisture but dont drown the plant.
Then there is the 60:40 Mix…which is 60% Pith and 40%Chips. This is the most common potting mix used and is an excellent product.

TRUE LIES

Down the main street of Nambour last week one of our customers experienced the following episode. There were two grocers, Walters and Fittler, in the same street. Fittler had a sign in his window, “Avocados, 20 cents each”. Our customer goes in and asks for some. “Sorry love”, said Fittler, “I haven’t got any in just now; come back on Wednesday”. So she goes on up the street to Walters But his avocados are One Dollar Twenty each! But at least he has them in stock.
“That’s a bit steep isn’t it? Our customer said..’Fittler’s are only 20 cents each”.
“Yeah”, says walters, “and when I haven’t got any in stock, mine also are only 20 cents each!”

 

 

 

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.

If you can’t find what you’re looking in our catalogue, you can use the search bar at the top of all our pages, above navigational menu and also below the side Menu.

All Plants on our website are available, not just the ones in our latest catalogue.

Key to Cold Tolerance: Letter after Hoya Name:C=Cool Growing, M= Intermediate Temperatures W=Warm Growing-Sub Tropical+ Note: Cool Growing will also thrive in the hotter conditions but the warm growing do not appreciate the cooler conditions.

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.
