DID YOU KNOW
* Tropical and sub-tropical plants have special needs when you grow in colder climates outside their natural range. See our focus article.
* Tropical and sub tropical plants that grow at higher altitudes are more likely to be adaptable to colder winter temperatures.
* Its the winter time when care must be taken with tropical and sub tropical plants.
* There are many many tropical plants that have now been shown to be adaptable to colder climates. but you should remember where it comes from.
* Knowing the habit and likes and dislikes of a plant and the environment it thrives in are all part of its ecology. Its interesting to know the ecology of a plant. When you know a lot of plants you will see there is a pattern which makes it easier to understand the whole thing. People who study this at educational institutions call themselves ecologists but you can be an ecologist just by continually enquiring into the patterns of nature.

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
* In Holland there is a specialist Company that paints Anthurium flowers blue!
The colouring lasts the length of the flowers life & the plants with painted blue flowers sell fast at premium price!
* There are 52 genera & 1300 species in the Family Zingiberaceae, or the Ginger family, and many are amazing important ornamental plants, spices, or medicinal plants.
* There is no such thing as an indoor house plant as no plant has ever evolved for thousands of years in a house ! Plants that tolerate low light in a house for a period benefit by being rotated into a greenhouse. Two to three week rotations are a guide.
* Vanilla essence comes from the seeds of the orchid Vanilla planifolia.
* Flowering plants & grass had not evolved yet at the time of the Dinosaurs (Mesozoic Period many years ago). Plant food sources were largely conifers – cone-bearing trees and shrubs. Go to Richmond Qld where many Dinosaurs have been unearthed.

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..

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 sales representative from Diemore Plants at Cobar….their administration clerk, and their manager are walking to lunch down the main street when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub the dust off and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, ‘I’ll give each of you just one wish’. ‘Me first! Me first!’ says the administration clerk….’I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world’. Puff!…. She’s gone.
‘Me next! Me next…’ says the sales representative….’I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life’. Puff!……He’s gone. ‘OK, you’re up’ the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, ‘I want those two back in the office after lunch!!’

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

As technology and western society takes us further and further from nature and getting our hands dirty its a good time to get back into natural things because this is where the real you will be happiest. Our species has not evolved over millions of years to suddenly be something different over the last 50 years! Keep it simple and surround yourself with plants. This is one of the bases for Happiness.
PS Get the Happy Vibe and You can Have Everything you Desire

About Scientific Names

It is very helpful and often essential to know something about the Scientific Classification of plants.
Lets put it this way.
Say you had a large Family of 500 people.
Your Family name is Jones. Is the name Jones enough to identify someone in your Family?
Of course not!!
Yet thats what we try and do with our plants!
Now What if we said Jones Blonde Hair would that identify a particular person. No because there might be 200 of this variety with blonde hair. Yet that is what we do with plants.
Now what if we said Heather Jones Blonde Hair….that could easily ID the person.

To identify a plant we use common names and/or Scientific names which are also called Botanical Name or Binomial Name.
The problem with common names is that a common name for a plant often varies from one area to another. One plant might have 10 common names! Although handy if you really want to know what a plant is it can be misleading and often is. Still 90% of plant people use them because its not scary and is useful because a lot is understood by it. Common names do not positively identify a plant.

To accurately ID a plant for any scientic work including research, applied agriculture and quarantine requirements etc you must have the scientific name of the plant. Also for an accurate description in selling a plant you should describe by the Scientific name so the buyer knows what they are getting.

Accepted Scientific Naming
Accepted scientific naming has two parts and both must be included to identify the plant.
The Genus….which describes a group of plants with similar attributes eg Rosa is a genus covering 100 Rose species.
and
The Species….is a particular one of those species that has enough difference for botanists to classify as different tho the other species eg Rosa multiflora

So Rosa multiflora is a correct ID
Notice how most of the scientific names use latin words joined together. This is not so hard ….as english and many other languages are derived from latin and we can easily recognise them. They also mean something usually. eg multi flora….means many flowers!

Variety Names
A Variety Name further describes a species.
eg Rosa multiflora ‘Red’ and this is a fine scientific description.

BUT … Rosa ‘Red’ is not a scientific description.

THE SPECIES NAME MUST BE INCLUDED FOR A SCIENTIFIC DESCRIPTION.
To obtain approval to import plants into the Australian Quarantine States you must declare the correct botanical name of the plant you are importing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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
