DID YOU KNOW
* We all know that not only do plants absorb carbon dioxide and release clean oxygen into the air but research has shown that they also absorb benzene, formaildehyde, trichloroethylene & other pollutants.
* There are companies who will plant 17 trees for you (at a fee) which will be enough to offset the carbon emissions of your motor vehicle !!
* The bright orange colour of carrots tell you they are an excellent source of Vitamin A which is important for good eyesight, especially at night. Vitamin A helps your body fight infection, and keeps your skin and hair healthy.Carrots can be a little boring to eat…but not so if you eat them raw with a delicious dip.
* An inflation rate of 3% hardly hardly compares with the double-digit price increases that haunted rich countries in the 1970s and emerging economies for far longer. (For much of the 1990s, the average inflation rate in poor countries was 50%.)

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
* Did you know the human body is mainly made up of bacteria held together by water.
* The human mind has more than 60,000 thoughts each day and 80% of these are negative self destructive thoughts! To turn yourself into the ‘new positive you’ be aware of your thoughts especially repetitive ones THEN breathe it in and feel the emotion in it….then breathe it right out as you let it go. Get used to doing it automatically …do it all day…it will become automatic.
* There are over 1,000 species of Anthurium.
* Flowering plants (Angiospermae) dominate todays flora of the Earth and constitute virtually all terrestrial vegetation. There are an estimated 250,000 species, with the greatest diversity in the moist tropics.

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.

 

 

 

The Amazing GesneriadsSinningia tubiflora tuber

Many make attractive houseplants and grow and develop more and more character as they age. Extremely interesting plants that not only possess unusual structure but also show rare beauty and gorgeous flowers. The Gesneriaceae family is mostly tuberous — although some species are fibrous-rooted shrubs and some produce only rudimentary tubers. A few species are “stoloniferous,” producing satellite tubers (e.g., Sinningia tubiflora, and most species are lithophytes (growing on rocks or epiphytes, rather than truly terrestrial.
It is a family of flowering plants consisting of about 152 genera and approximately 3,540 species in the Old World (most Cyrtandroideaeand New World (Gesnerioideae) tropics and subtropics, with a very small number extending to temperate areas.
We intend to introduce them to you one after another.
Please watch with interest as these mysterious wonders magically appear before your eyes. Lookout we have three for you in this latest catalogue.

TRUE LIES

Over at Yandina last week an elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two elderly gentlemen were talking, and one said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant, and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.” The other man said, “What is the name of the restaurant?” The first man thought and thought and finally said, “What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know…the one that is red and has thorns.” “Do you mean a rose?””Yes,” the man said and then he turned toward the kitchen and yelled, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”

 

 

 


Importing Plants from Overseas
There are certain processes to be followed when importing plants, bulbs or rhizomes from overseas. Firstly you must fill out the Application Forms for an Import Permit from AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Service). A lot of detail must be given about each species you want to import.If your application is successful you will be Issued an Import Permit.The Import conditions will detail how the plants (or rhizomes etc)are to be prepared before export and then on arrival…this involves repotting into soiless mixes or barerooting plants. It will require a Phytosanitary Certificate be Issued by the Overseas Depatment of Agriculture…saying all is in order. On arrival this usually involves the plants being addressed to & inspected by AQIS, followed by fumigation by an approved contractor and then three months in quarantine at an approved quarantine station. The State Govt. usually runs one at each capital city airport. If the plants show any signs of disease or insects or if the Phytosanitary Certificate is not exactly as required…the plants will usually all be destroyed or sent back at the importers cost..
By the time the plants come out of quarantine(if they survive) they will be costing about 5 times the initial purchase price. As all plants are paid for prior to despatch from overseas all costs are at the risk of the importer in the case of any failure in the protocol. Importing plants is a very risky business !! Exporting plants overseas involves all the same procedures only in reverse. *Believe it or not sending plants to Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania  involves all of the above plus 5 different treatments before sending..

 

 

 

WHY GOOD POTTING MIXES AGE INTO POOR POTTING MIXES
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 a lot of fine particles resulting in poor drainage that your plant will not appreciate.

 

 

 

 

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
