DID YOU KNOW

* Spanish Moss aka Old Mans Beard is an Air Plant yes a Tillandsia with the name Tillandsia usenoides It is in the Bromeliad Family! Spanish Moss likes a humid climate and will multiply well for you if you dunk it once or twice a week. It does not like drying out fo any length of time….which is where most of us go wrong.
* Each plant of Spanish Moss is no longer tham 6cm and no wider than 1mm. Then they stick onto each other to form an amazing mass. They multiply with tiny pups like other Broms and their flowers are miniscule.
* Tillandsia (air plants) produce santa clause like seeds after flowering and these can be easily germinated in moist sphagnum moss.
* Politics wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact that it attracts so many politicians.
* Dragon Fruit comes from the Cactus like plant Hylocereus undatus. It grows best in the tropics and sub-tropics and the fruit is delicious. Unfortunately the ones you buy in the supermarket may taste rather bland because to get the real flavour they must not be picked too early. Guess what happens with the supermarket fruits they are usually picked too early in order to extend their shelf life. They are also the prettiest fruit types which are not usually the best tasting.
* Abutilons are called Chinese Lanterns because of the lovely flower shape and not where they come from which is South America. Native birds love getting nectar from their abundant flowers which can be throughout the year especially winter. Can be grown in sun or shade.
* During the Iraq War the US Government employed between 50-80,000 merceneries to bolster army numbers.. The war became much more protracted than expected and thats how numbers were increased to cope with the need. Mercenaries have been deployed by rulers back into Medievil  times. The Swiss Guard at the Vatican are a remnant mercenary group deployed by the Swiss Government which is well known for its deployment of mercenary forces.
Last Months 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.

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%.

 

 

The Natural Way of Things and Normality
If it happens in Nature (Life) it is part of the Natural way of things. Because something is not the norm it does not make it unnatural. People can get on their judgemental high horse if it is not what they understand as normal but that is setting themselves up as the pinnacle to which all others should aspire. Mozart was not normal…nor Da Vinci….nor Ghandi…..nor Mother Theresa…nor Jesus Christ…nor Aung San Suu Kyi ‘The Lady’ of Burma…..
Hybrid plants are not normal, mutant plants are not normal, cultivars are not normal. Not normal but part of nature and are Natural and are loved and sought after by plant enthusiasts because they inspire. Do you see the straight species plants making jokes, criticising, discriminating and in otherways trying to bring down the plants that are not normal. No and this is because plants do not have a mind and the ego that goes with it and hence do not live in fear of others not like themselves.

About Herbal Medicines

Why dont particular herbal remedies work the same for Everyone?
The answer is quite simple in that individual metabolisms vary and so do the chemical reactions taking place in the gut with the huge differences in its microflora. To get an effective result from a herb (just like western medicines) the active chemical constituents must be compatible with whats going on chemically in the gut. Remember what goes on in the gut governs our whole body. Different guts will react differently to the same herb.
Why are some Herbs Recommended for Many Ailments?
The reasonis simple again. Its that some herbs have an effect on major bodily functions which may then in turn have an effect on several different ailments.

Heliconias….provide some of the worlds most amazing flowers. Next month we will be reintroducing them to our hardcopy catalogue as we only send them in the warm months. We send rhizomes so they are manageable in size and they need warm weather to shoot. The only Heliconias we send in pots at this time of year are Heliconia angusta ‘Yellow Christmas’ ,  Heliconia angusta ‘Red Christmas’ and Heliconia psittacorum x spathocircinata ‘Alan Carle’. If you are in a warmer area all our Heliconias are again listed and can be purchased on this website.

 

 

TRUE LIES

Little Billy next door came home from the playground with a bloody nose, black eye, and torn clothing. It was obvious he’d been in a bad fight and lost. While his Dad Mick was patching him up, he asked his son what happened.”Well, Dad,” said Billy, “I challenged Larry to a duel. And, you know, I gave him his choice of weapons.””Yes,” said Mick, “that seems fair.
Billy said ”I know, but I never thought he’d choose his sister!”

 

 

 

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.

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.

WA & NT & Tasmanian Customers see Below

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.

Next WA & NT & Tasmanian orders go Friday 6th October 2017.

We need your order by the 12.30 PM Tuesday 3rd of October, 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.
