DID YOU KNOW

* If a million people say a stupid thing…it is still a stupid thing..!!!…Geoff Pople 1990

 

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
* Native White Cypress Pine provides us with one of the worlds great timbers. There are about one million acres of it in the Pilliga Scrub (Pilliga State Forest)near Baradine.
* CSIRO Research found that selective harvesting of sawlogs and the existing Koala populations there happily coexist. The Koalas live off the Eucalyps that are mixed with the Native Pine. Forests there are managed in perpetuity on a sustained yield basis.
* Tropical Plants bring there own energy to your garden. You can see the energy in terms of fast growth, colour, form and fascinating life cycles.
* Many tropical plants are adept at growing in cooler gardens…you just need to create or select protected areas and follow the simple rules we keep giving. …..the main one is to not let them be cold and wet at the same time.
* Deciduous tropical plants are nearly always well adapted to cooler gardens because there is no above ground foliage when the weather is at its coldest in winter.
* Most of the 1500 species of Anthurium are actually epiphytes growing in trees!! They grow high up where they catch the breeze and their exposed roots can dry off after rain….see more in our
* The Anthurium andreanum flower arrangement is made up of a flat colourful spathe and an upright spadix. Tiny male and female flowers form on the spadix and after pollination by insects seeds form right there. The male pollinates at a slightly different time so they do not self pollinate.

Our Mail Order Business started in 1984 as Paradise Distributors. Our first website was called www.paraplants.com and we had to change it later to www.rareplants.net.au for reasons I forget…who knows now!
Paradise Place was named after our Nursery a few years back. We have never been open to the public and are not a garden centre….more of a Botanists Dream with plants here..there …and everywhere. We are open by appointment to people who have an idea what they are after as our time is precious in the balancing act of growing, packing and cataloging your plants. We send plants to all States and Territories of Australia.
We live on the nursery property only one km from the heart of Nambour QLD. which I rate as easily one of the best towns in the world with its hilly nature and hinterland backdrop…older homes and great rainfall and greener than green landscapes.. laden with subtropical plants. It has always been a friendly town with a country atmosphere.
Early next year we will have packaged and personally sent our one millionth plant.
Many of our lovely customers have been with us for over 20 years.

 

 

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

Available in 500ml, 1, 2.5, 10 and 20 litre bottle. This is concentrated fertiliser so Mix at a ratio of 100:1 with water!
500ml $9.95, One Litre $16.50, 2.5 Litre $24, 10 Litre $84, 20 Litre $154

Busby the World Famous Planting Wonder Dog
Has Ordained 3 more Planting Wonder Dogs
Busby has taken on the role of World Famous PlantaDog. Look out for his articles and Videos and his much sought ‘Paw of Approval’.

Busby Seal of Approval Website

 

 

 

 

Busby believes we should be planting more…..more trees & more shrubs for the other animals and birds….more fruits….more veges for our food…more herbs for our health. More trees will catch the carbon dioxide and turn it into wood for our homes and animal homes. Get rid of the deserts by planting and improving the land. Instead of wasting money….. put it into land improvement and we will turn deserts into good land again. The climate will improve with more plants because they attract rain and breath the oxygen back into it. The plants hold the carbon. Science has proven this years ago.
Busby says save the planet ..plant more plants. We need workers out there planting to their hearts delight to put to shame the lazy talkers…. the conference goers …the politicians…get them out planting. Get other PlantaDogs to join me and nip around their heels.

TRUE LIES

A man was walking on Mooloolaba Beach one day and he found a bottle half buried in the sand. He decided to open it. Inside was a genie. The genie said,” I will grant you three wishes and three wishes only.” The man thought about his first wish and decided, “I think I want 1 million dollars transferred to a Swiss bank account. POOF! Next he wished for a Ferrari red in color. POOF! There was the car sitting in front of him. He asked for his final wish, ” I wish I was irresistible to women.” POOF! He turned into a box of chocolates.

 

 

 

INTERSTATE CONCIERGE QUARANTINE SERVICE

Plants cannot simply be sent into Western Australia, Northern Territory or Tasmania without satisfying the protocols of the particular Depts of Agriculture.
We have been providing a Concierge/Quarantine Service for Interstate Plants for a couple of years now. Clients from Western Australia, Northern Territory or Tasmania who want specific plants we do not have here… simply get those plants sent to us and we repot and label them, hold them till our next 3 weekly send out date, treat them with insecticides and fungicides as required, do all the necessary paperwork and then repackage and send out Courier by Air Express. This is an expensive process when you add in the freight and government fees. If you require further information go to our Concierge Hub on our website. Its all there.

 

 

Essence of the Heart – by Gregg Braden

Is a very interesting gentleman who has studied some of the ancient spiritual beliefs of the Essenes who lived 2,500 years ago and explains how those beliefs are being ratified by the latest scientific findings. Braden has the qualifications to do this study. eg There is a strong magnetic field surrounding the heart and this field can be transmitted over infinite distance as it is of the same frequency as the fields in the outer space. You see scientists used to believe that space was empty while latest research shows that it is full of a universal energy wave.

BREATHING METHOD…Calling all Golfers.. Miracle Result!!

Last month we gave you a breathing method to clear your thoughts, calm your mind and to really focus when you need to. We asked a friend to try it at golf as he was playing erratically at times. The result was the best round he had ever played just by doing this every shot. Of coarse you dont have time to do it 7 times. Here it is again could not be simpler. Breathe in deeply for 7 seconds, hold the breath for 7 seconds, breathe out for 7 seconds and hold for another seven seconds before starting another cycle. Repeat the cycle 7 times.You can apply it to anything or any sport you want to focus on. Some Commando training reduces the whole cycle to 4 seconds x 4.

 

 

 

 

Science Says… ‘Plant Trees for a Better Climate’
….Nature Uses the Sun to turn Carbon into Wood…

PLANT TREES ….Young growing trees use the suns energy to produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide which is turned into wood for building!
Tell the governments to plant millions of trees….harvest them for much needed wood while they are not real old…and keep on growing them.
That way we control carbon dioxide, increase oxygen, supply wood a much needed resource as well as improving our environment its beauty and rainfall as forests attract rain. And Yes the Climate will Balance itself!

 

 

 

 

WHY MEN ARE FROM MARS!!

Dr Martin L Rossman MD in a fascinating presentation called ‘The Healing Mind’ at an American University
Have a look when you have time you will like it guaranteed…

Anyway he gave this little snippet of information.
Up until 8 weeks all fetuses are female . At this time any fetus with the male Y chromosome is ‘washed’ with testosterone and among other things 80% of the neurones ‘that process emotional communication’ in the developing male brain are killed off ! The changes continue around age 14-15 at puberty when those
with the Y chromosome are again ‘washed’ in testosterone and more neurones dealing with emotional communication are killed off while at the same time the area of the brain dealing with sexuality and aggressiveness is increased. At the same time the female brain maintains an area that is 4 to 5 times larger than the male for emotional communication!

(From ‘The Female Brain’ Dr Louann Brizendine …..Dr Rossman says read this before you read any other book!!)
Quote John Gray…Men are from Mars, Women from Venus.
“Love brings up our unresolved feelings . One day we are feeling loved , and the next day we are suddenly afraid to trust love .
The painful memories of being rejected begin to surface when we are faced with trusting and accepting our partner’s love .”

 

 

 

 

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 re-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 $17 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.

 

 

We send our plants in 70mm pots! We do not bareroot our Plants.

If there is an exception we tell you.

 

Please Note; We send our plants in 70mm diameter pots. We do not send in 40 mm tubes which are only 25% of the volume. Most other online sales are in either 40mm tubes or bareroot plants. We do not set plants back by taking the plant out of its pot and barerooting it.

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.Save
