Newsletter May – June 2020

Welcome to your May-June Catalogue.
That was an interesting Month while some people got bored out of their mind all the gardeners and plant lovers had plenty to do and our gardens are flourishing. Last week we watched on TV what happened to the people of Europe during the Second World War ‘Hitlers Last Days’ now that was hardship in the extreme…if we want a definition of hardship start there!
Each month we try to bring some of the worlds most amazing plants right to your doorstep and when this inspires you it inspires us to do more. Thankyou.

DID YOU KNOW
S
trengthen Your Immune System
* Epiphytes are plants that grow on trees. See our focus if you would like to know more.
* Potting mixes do not last forever because the larger particles keep breaking down into smaller particles. After a couple of years what was a mix with a lot of free draining coarse particles will become a gluggy mix with poor drainage that your plant may not appreciate.
* Do not be afraid to harden your Hoyas to full sun as many grow & flower better in full sun. If your Hoya has not flowered for you try a spot where it will get more light like under a tree facing the east or north east and protected from the hot wester sun. In New Guinea none of our Hoya sightings were in dense jungle but more in the open and especially on the edges of forest like the bank of a river or on the trees on the sea shore.
* Worry causes loss of control of your life because you always get what you worry about. It also causes ill health.
* According to acclaimed A Bugfree Mind author Andy Shaw the reason why ‘Self development programs’ fail miserably to get results is that our minds are controlled by the subconscious. If you train your mind to think clearly without the influence of fear and old defunct self sabotaging memories held in the subconscious….you will find the same programs will work for you. See last months issue on self hypnosis.
* Australian Astronomer Brian Schmidt was instrumental in one of the greatest Scientific Discoveries of all time Dark Energy. Read below how important it is in our lives.

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
Strengthen Your Immune System
* In the past we have told you about Gumbi Gumbi (Pittosporum phillyreoides)…proven scientifically to be a very powerful anti oxidant and immune stimulant. Also many people have declared it has saved them from cancer when given up on by the usual methods. We now have some powderised Gumbi Gumbi in capsules.
* Diabetes Plant (aka*Sambung, Longevity Spinach) (Scientific name Gynura procumbens) has been shown to kill viruses and has other scientifically proven health benefits…see our website go to Diabetes Plant page …go to the bottom and click on Scientific Review.
* Many of you have these 2 plants now. What I do is put 8 leaves of Diabetes Plant (Gynura procumbens) and 5 leaves of Gumbi Gumbi in a blender with a glass of water and vitamin powder and add 3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to reduce the bitterness of the Gumbi Gumbi . If you have Gumbi capsules you could have one in the morning and one at night with food for maintenace protection.The capsules are simply powdered leaves put into a capsule. Gynura procumbens just eat 8 or 10 a day…easy to eat.

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.

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’. Here are the 3 new Planting Wonder Dogs.

Busby Seal of Approval Website

 

 

 

New Planting Wonder Dogs. Send a photo and your name and area of abode if you are a keen Planting Dog….You also could be Ordained by Busby.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Science Discovered a New Energy and Matter called Dark Energy
Its called Dark Energy by scientists but it actually refers to ‘Unknown Energy’. Its been proven by todays scientists and was put forward by Einstein years back. Being scientists they managed to come up with a terrible name for something so magnificent!
It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest – everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter – adds up to less than 5% of the universe.
Heres my Questions: Humans can’t see dark matter but other animals might. We as humans can’t harness dark energy …like the electricity we also can’t see… but other animal species may be able to feel or use it. Can plants adapt to it ?
It is said Dark Energy is an expanding force that powers the expansion of the Universe and humans by nature need to expand also. This would be no coincidence as we are subject to the forces of nature whether we realise it or not. Dark Matter also exists but we are not equipped to sense us as it flows right through us. As humans we only know 3 dimensions …does dark energy and matter create other dimensions that a human body cannot perceive. The Dalai Lama says the energy of the Universe is ‘Compassion’. Is Dark Energy Compassion? Are our human spirits aligned with Dark Energy and Compassion.
Can the human spirit perceive Dark Energy once aware of it ? I am going to say almost certainly. I believe there are many many examples of people who have exhibited Supernatural Powers who were aligned with it. When we have an out of body experience are we connecting with Dark Energy or Dark Matter? Once we accept its there can we use this powerful force to enhance our experiences and power on our little planet Earth?

 

When was Dark Energy Discovered?
Dark energy was discovered in 1998 with this method by two international teams that included American astronomers Adam Riess (the author of this article) and Saul Perlmutter and Australian astronomer Brian Schmidt.

TRUE LIES

In Nambour court last week A judge asks a defendant to please stand. “You are charged with murdering a garbage man with a chain saw.”
From the back of the courtroom a man shouts, “You lying mongrel!” “Silence in the court!” The judge turns to the defendant again and says, “You are also charged with killing a paperboy with a shovel.”
“You tightwad!” blurts the spectator. “Quiet!” yelled the judge. “You are also charged with killing a mailman with an electric drill.””You cheap son of a… ” the spectator starts to shout.
The judge thunders back, ” I will hold you in contempt! What is the reason for your outbursts?”
“I’ve lived next to that lying mongrel for 10 years now, but do you think he ever had a tool when I needed to borrow one?”

 

 

 

 

 

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 $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.

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.
