Latest Catalogue October

Newsletter October 2021

Welcome to your October Catalogue.

We can be so rushed these days that we can jump in without giving our plants proper consideration. Remember that ‘plants are peace’ and if we want more peace & joy take the time to think about our plants. Plants operate in a very relaxed timespace…..much slower than the human mind moves….and that is why we always revert to nature when we wish to relax & tune in to the power of the Universe. Each plant here has been prepared with love & patience…we hope they keep you good company.

DID YOU KNOW

* A seed contains its own food supply, which helps the sprouting plant as it begins its new life.
* Roots are covered with root hairs that absorb water and minerals.
* Orchids have the smallest known seeds. They are the oldest member of the Asparagus (Asparagales) Family …this fact was only discovered in recent years by DNA analysis.
* Apple seeds Apple Seeds contain a small quantity of cyanide which renders the seeds quite bitter tasting.

 

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
* Cockroaches love nipping off the tops of your most prized plants including orchids. You can make up a cocky trap by putting some vaseline around the inside neck of a jar and placing some food like banana skin inside. You might be surprised how many you catch.
* Tropical deciduous plants do not usually reemerge from winter until it gets hot…say 30oC. Just because September has arrived… it does not mean they will suddenly reshoot.
* To sculpture a tree like that on the right (in Tokyo) takes thousands of hours over a long period of time. It takes cultural intent, expertise & dedication.These trees have great spiritual meaning and they can be found wherever Japanese gardens occur.
* The Japanese Bullet Trains travel at 320km per hour yet the tracks are so well engineered it feels like 100km per hour and yet much smoother than a conventional train.
* These trains go straight through mountains and under the sea….53 km under sea into the island of Hokkaido.

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.

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

The ladies dishwasher in Dianella WA had stopped working, so she called a repairman. He couldn’t accommodate her with an evening appointment, and since she had to go to work the next day, she told him “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the table, and I’ll mail you the cheque. By the way, dont worry about my Blue Heeler. She wont bother you. But, whatever you do, do not under any circumstances talk to my rainbow lorikeet!”

When the repairman arrived at her house the next day, he discovered the meanest looking female blue heeler with great big sharp teeth…the biggest he had ever seen. Like she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time he was there, the lorikeet drove him mad with its incessant squawking and talking. Finally the repairman couldn’t stand the lorikeet’s talking any longer and he told the bird to be quiet. The lorikeet replied, “Get him, Bluey”

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

NURSERY WALKTHROUGH….LIVE

We have now done three. The first one on Ferns and then How to Import Plants into Australia. This week we covered getting plants into the Quarantine States of Tasmania, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

We now do a 3 weekly Nursery Walkthrough at 2pm on Wednesdays. As we are not generally open to visitors. Strictly by appointment. We do different parts of the nursery each time and sometimes there is a focus on a particular type of plant or topic.
It’s on Facebook and its live!! Its also on Youtube so if you miss the live run you can pick it up later on both Facebook ( Our ..Paradise Distributors.. Page) and Youtube (Paradise Distributors)

Because its live its very much ad lib…if we make a mistake bad luck. The next one will be Wednesday 6th October at 2pm.

 

 

 

DECIDUOUS PLANTS

Are fantastic because they are unaffected by winter ..by dropping all their foliage…they have a rest for 3 months but when they bounce back they do it with a flourish & are always the fastest & most consistent flowerers. NOT YOU but the occasional customer acquires a deciduous plant going into winter & thinks its going backwards so applies heaps of water & fertiliser effectively killing it by drowning & poisoning.

 

WHY PLANTS WAKE UP YOUR SPIRITUAL SIDE

Have you ever noticed how being in a setting with plants and even one plant can wake up your spirituality. But first of all what is your spiritual side and how does it feel!
One way of putting it is that your Spirit is the real you….when you remove all the fears and stress in your daily life and all pain physically and mentally ie nullify mind and body….you are left with your spirit and it feels very pleasant….you feel very pleasant and that magical pleasantness is your Spirit and its always there although hidden when suppressed!

Your Spirit being completely natural and unaffected by anything concocted or manmade has a natural vibration which is the natural vibration of our Universe.
Plants evolved in our universe or specifically on our planet at the same vibration as the universe ….after all …how else could it happen. Plants evolved much earlier than the Animal Kingdom who came and lived off them.

Your spirit vibrates at the same frequency as the plants the frequency of the natural Universe. This is why plants can bestow on you a very pleasant feeling because your natural spirit is being awaken. Not only that your vibration can resonate to a higher amplitude again when you are already in that pleasant feeling and you encounter the vibration of a forest or even a single plant. This is how plants elevate your spirit.
Is it any wonder why so many plants have been given spiritual significance in various cultures around the world. Just look at the Australian Aboriginal Cultures and those of Asia and India for a start.

Albert Eistein said ‘Everything has a vibration and beats with a certain Frequency’

 

 

 

 

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
