DID YOU KNOW
*Ice Building Up…..Oceans not Rising……Relax Everyone
Everyone except the vested interests and doomsday type people will love to know:
1/ NASA (Aug7 2017) reports that the Ice on the Antarctic Ice Cap is Increasing not decreasing in contradiction of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Report of 2013. They actually measure the ice…not computer modeled.
2/ Ocean levels have not risen in the last 50 years and unlikely to rise this century according to Swedish world sea level expert, physicist and geologist Dr Nils-Axel Morner, former Chairman of the INQUA International Commission on Sea Level Change.
Morner’s group actually get out and physically measured it over the last 35 years. This is compared with those that choose to COMPUTER MODEL. …rubbish in rubbish out.
Morner says the talk about the sea rising is nothing but a colossal scare story.

 

Last Months Did You Know
* Only 100 years back it was the policy of all governments to clear the country side for farming. That was the philosophy of the times. We look back now and can see that too much was done in some areas. While there are still vast reserves of forested land on the eastern side of the great dividing range the same cannot be said for the west.
* Water will not quell the heat of a hot spice because water just rolls over the oil spice. Try bread which absorbs it or alcohol which dissolves it or milk which binds it with its casein.
* River Systems like the Georgina, Diamantina & Cooper’s Creek and the Barcoo drain into the Lake Ayre depression.This is cattle fattening country that rarely gets rain, water is fed from the northern monsoonal rain. The Lake Eyre Basin is the worlds largest internal river system! A fascinating place.
* In cold and temperate places you can get your veges growing earlier by making a temporary igloo out of strong but cheap igloo plastic and black poly pipe. You can make your igloo big to walk in or tiny just to cover a garden bed. Getting them growing earlier means more food longer at the other end of the season. You can also cover seedlings with plastic or glass bottles cut in half.

Why your Gut Controls Your Health & Your Mind

We have added this groundbreaking book by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride MD
to our list which you can see on our website. Its called ‘Gut and the Psychology Syndrome’ ISBN 13:978-0-9548520-2-3. Also available as an e-book
This book lists the current research and puts it all together for you in a factual way & tells you how to cure the problems
DID YOU KNOW that according to this major scientific study health issues like: Autism, ADD, ADHD,Schizophrenia, Depression, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. CAN BE CURED by caring for your Gut with the correct diet. If you know anyone with these issues then it would be a good idea to tell them about it or buy this book for them.
THE AUTHOR an MD has cured her own son of autism using these methods…..if you think you ‘know’ it may be worthwhile to think again
Did you Know the Human gastrointestinal system:
1. Has an amazing microflora of good and bad microbes of thousands of different species eg there is something like 2kg of bacteria in there doing their incredible work.
2. The work of the microflora in the gut activates some 65% of our immune system responses & hence our ability to fight disease.
3. In addition…in health the good and bad bacteria are in balance. Overload of any one of the bad species will cause a specific disease for that person.
4. The guts microflora makeup for each person is very individual depending on what our food or poison intake is. So dietary imbalances will lead to different problems for different people…no two are the same………..
5. There are thousandsof species of good microbes alone and another 500 so far identified species of opportunistic flora which can turn nasty. In balance they digest our food, supply nutrients as well as many many specialised microbes that operate our immune system.

 

 

 

 

 

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

How to Stop the World from Spinning so Fast

Thinking about how to get the world to spin at your own pace.

1. We all have an internal vibration that we are comfortable with. Quantum physicists have proven when its all broken down we are simply energy…the atoms we are made up of, are all energy that vibrate…when the vibes are slower the atoms form solid matter like skin & organs. Consider water that turns to steam (water vapour) with added heat… the steam has a higher vibration. Heat the steam more and it will turn into the higher vibrational molecules of H2O. ….more heat and you will get the very fast vibrational energy of the individual Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms. If you split the Hydrogen atom you will get the amazing energy of the Atom Bomb!
2. So here we are sitting peacefully with the energy of hundreds of atom bombs within us! Just like the bomb… we can use it for creation or for destruction.
3. So lets relax and use it for creation and peace. There is always a choice every second of the day. Here are some suggestions for you to consider to slow the day:
4. Learn to take time to relax and meditate. Meditate by controlling your breathing…eg 6 seconds in breath,hold 6 seconds, 6 seconds out breath, hold 6 seconds and start again.
5. Focus on the end of your nose if you like. When you meditate you can empty your mind but when an issue comes up note it and let it go. When you note it …notice how the vibe feels…is it in accord with your natural internal vibration….if not just accept it…surrender to it and the issue will dissolve. If it does not dissolve eventually you will confront the fear within you and solve the problem.
6. Run your life at your natural pace and not the pace of those around you. Be aware of those trying to exploit you by the use of fear….like the media, advertising, politicians, special interest groups.
7. Do not let others judge you…remember judging others is a sign of low self esteem….and the judges have their their own fears & agendas. Believe in yourself.
Run your own race at your own pace. In horseracing the backmarkers often come home the strongest.
8. Be conscious of your ego (irrelevant past memories) running your life and putting you into a dreamlike autopilot….keep your heart and intuition in control. Love everything.
9. When the amount of work seems overwhelming…write down whats required in order of priority. Remember that 80% of results come from only 20% of the actions.
Get someone to share the load.
10. Turn off all the news and data we really don’t need to know. Its only data …do we really need to know every bit of tragic news in the world every minute of the day. We all have our own grief to contend with at times why invite more than necessary.
11. When you are really ‘very busy..busy’ deliberately stop and take time out to smell the flowers.
12. Visit your garden frequently and create something new every day, whenever you can.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRUE LIES

A frog walks into the Commonwealth Bank at Dianella WA, and approaches the teller. He sees the tellers name tag reads Paddy Black and says “I’d like to take out a loan, Mrs. Black” ”Certainly,” says the teller, “how much would that be for?”
One million dollars.” replies the frog. “Don’t worry, it’s ok, I know the manager.” The teller is understandably taken aback by this, and asks if the frog has any collateral to cover this. ”As a matter of fact, I do!” says the frog, and he reaches into his pocket and hands over a tiny ceramic elephant. ”What?!” says the teller, “This is garbage! I can’t take this!” ”Well, take it up with my father then!” The frog retorts. ”Oh yeah, and who might that be?” The teller is quickly getting more and more annoyed at the frog. ”Why, it’s Keith Richards!” The frog is waiting impatiently, tapping his toe on the ground. “Now, can I have that loan or not?” ”Wait right here” the teller says, as she storms into the back room, looking for her manager. ”There’s a frog out there who claims to know you, and wants a million dollar loan. He claims his father his Keith Richards! He even gave me this as collateral,” she says, holding up the elephant. “I mean, what even is this?” The manager takes a look at the elephant and replies “It’s a knick knack, Paddy Black, give the frog a loan. His old man’s a rolling stone!”

 

 

 

 

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.

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.

Next WA & NT & Tasmanian orders go Friday 16th November 2018.

We need your order by the 12.30 PM Tuesday 13th of November, 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.

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.
