Last Months Did You Know
* Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use chlorophyll to
convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide from the air into food energy
(sugars [glucose] and starches).
* Leaves of some plants change colour in winter as they rest during that period. They stop making food with cholorophyll which is green. As green colour fades, hidden colour appears. Fungi suck up the rest of the nutrients it wants as the leaf falls to the ground. There are thousands of fungi in nature….almost all harmless just going about their job.
* Fungi contribute more biomass to soil than any other organism.
* The orchids have about 25,000-35,000 species which is more than any other family of flowering plants.
* Once a person holds a belief it can rarely be changed…so why try to change the peaceful & harmless beliefs of others….it is much more constructive to accept differing opinions as correct for that person….and accept the difference with grace.

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

One of our customers Helen out past Quilpie in Western Queensland received a rare Pingine Talking Parrot for her birthdayfrom husband Dave. The parrot was fully grown, with a very bad attitude and worse vocabulary….Every other word was an expletive; those that weren’t expletives were, to say the least, rude. Helen tried to change the bird’s attitude by constantly saying polite words, playing soft music… anything she could think of. Nothing worked.
Dave yelled at the bird, and the bird got worse. He shook the bird, and the bird got madder and more rude……Finally, in a moment of desperation, Helen put the parrot in the freezer!! For a few moments she heard the bird swearing, squawking, kicking and screaming and then, suddenly, there was absolute quiet.Helen was frightened that she might have actually hurt the bird, and quickly opened the freezer door.The parrot calmly stepped out onto Helen’s extended arm and said, “I’m sorry that I offended you with my language and my actions, and I ask your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior”.
Helen was astounded at the changes in the bird’s attitude and was about to ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, “May I ask what the Chicken did?”

 

 

 

 

 

Plant Quarantine….What we have to do to carry out the Plant Quarantine Protocol for WA, Tasmania and QLD.

* We have to hold the plants in a dedicated quarantine area but its not how long they are held that matters …its the specified treatment and a lot more.
* All plants are sent in their pots in a soiless potting mix.
* We get permission to send the plants from WA, Tas and NT. Plants must be identified with their correct botanical names.
* All plants are sprayed and dipped wuth the approved chemicals
* Plant Health Certificates are prepared for signing by the Authorised Officers
* All plants are inspected for certain pests and diseases important to the receiving States by the Qld .Dept of Agriculture who sign off on the documents.
*We then prepare the plants for sending so they have moisture and and are protected in transit. Then we pack the plants into cartons.
* The cartons are sent by overnight Air Freight.
PS We also do this Quarantine Protocol for other Growers and the details are listed in the Concierge Quarantine Hub.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

TREES

* Absorb Carbon Dioxide and turn it into wood.
* Wood can be cut up into timber to build our homes etc etc.
* Many tree lots can be retained as habitat for our wildlife
including our endangered Koalas.
* Trees release oxygen for us to breathe.
* Pay Farmers and landholders to grow trees for timber or
wildlife just as they are being paid to sequest carbon in the soil.
* Paying Farmers to establish trees will be a lot less costly and more creative environmentally and economically than the hair brained schemes being promoted in so called Green Policies.

If there is too much carbon in the atmosphere plant more trees!!
* Plant trees where they are needed.
* Help countries who have denuded their forest to grow trees back.
Look at it on an Australian Basis but also on a planet basis.

This is the only Answer….. Plant Trees and
Receive the Benefits Environmentally and Commercially.

 

 

 

 

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
