DID YOU KNOW
* Adult frogs are carnivorous and will eat just about anything smaller than themselves, including insects, worms and even other frogs. Some frogs are tiny but the largest of them all, the Goliath frog, is the size of a baby deer!
* The three largest land-owners in England are the Queen, the Church of England and Trinity College, Cambridge
* Emus cannot walk backwards.
* The Bible, the world’s best-selling book, is also the world’s most shoplifted book.
* Its a scientific fact that when ‘you’ are broken down to the last atom’ you’ and all life forms are made up of pure energy. Its only that this energy has a slow vibration that it takes on a solid form. Understand this and you are on the way to understanding that you can exist in an energy form of high vibration ie ‘a spirit’.
* The huge snails we have in Nambour eat paper…leave a page out on a flat surface and they will eat it in a week…leaving marks just like on a leaf. A magazine will be eaten over a few months page by page!! Not surprising really as paper is made from the cellulose fibres of wood. Leaves are also made from cellulose.
* To make one kilo of honey bees have to visit 4 million flowers, travelling a distance equal to 4 times around the earth.

 

 

Last Months Did You Know
* It takes about 10,000 hours of study and practise to become an expert on any major skill.
* Anyone can change their strength and body shape with 100 visits to their local gym over a 7-8 month period.
* What you believe to be true is greatly influenced by what you learn as a child. These beliefs can be self limiting & restrict your potential for life.
* Bamboo is one of the worlds most useful plants…from its ornamental values, to food to construction to a source of fibre for clothing. …see our back page focus on Bamboo.
* In horticulture there are often many ways to achieve the same result. Sometimes the different methods are used to cover different growing conditions.
* Even the great horse trainer TJ Smith said you are never too old to learn something new about training a horse. You could say never too smart also. For the gardener it holds even truer because you are dealing with so many different species of the plant kingdom. With the thoriughbred you are dealing with only one species Equus caballus.

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.

The first of the Big Six Fears that Hold  us all Back & How to Overcome It

1) The fear of poverty. This is instilled into most
children from an early age….your subconscious mind
is programmed to fear and worry about poverty. What
the mind dwells upon is what you get. Accept now that
you are already rich in many ways, accept that money does not equal peace & joy, accept that if you REALLY want financial prosperity you can have it IF :
1) you are prepared to accept that your fears are irrational…AND SIMPLY let the fear go.
and 2) you are prepared to work at it.
Did you know 87% of fears never happen & the ones that do eventuate are beyond your control. Focus on what you want not what you do not want. In your mind tell yourself you are already where you want to be and you will be surprised how your subconscious (intuition) will come to the fore to eventually get you there in reality.

TRUE LIES

A couple from Gympie were really into spiritualism and reincarnation. They vowed that if either died, the other one remaining would try to contact the partner in the other world exactly 30 days after their death. Unfortunately, a few weeks later, the young man died in a car crash. True to her word, his sweetheart tried to contact him in the spirit world exactly 30 days later. At the seance, she called out, “John, John, this is Martha. Do you hear me?” A ghostly voice answered her, “Yes Martha, this is John. I can hear you.” Martha tearfully asked, “Oh John, what is it like where you are?” “It’s beautiful. There are clear skies, a soft breeze, sunshine most of the time.” “What do you do all day?” asked Martha. “Well, Martha, we get up before sunrise, eat some good breakfast, and there’s nothing but making love until noon. After lunch, we nap until two and then make love again until about five. After dinner, we go at it again until we fall asleep about 11 p.m.” Martha was somewhat taken aback. “Is that what heaven really is like?” “Heaven? I’m not in heaven, Martha.” “Well, then, where are you?” “I’m a rabbit out at Roma.”

 

 

SOME SECRETS ABOUT WOMEN

Do not let any of your females see this.
1. If she asks your opininion about how she looks, she does not want
an honest answer you fool.
2. Do not ask about shoes or clothes in the wardrobe….its too complex.
3. Clothes that seem new will always have been around ‘for some time’
4. Don’t give a woman a secret…she can tell two or three friends & still
be keeping it.
5. Always allow her twice as much space in a suitcase when travelling.
6. Talk allowance….allow her three words to one of yours.
7. The two highest IQ’s ever recorded (on a standard test) both belong to women.
8. According to research conducted at the Indiana University School of Medicine, men listen with only one side of the brain, while women use both!

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.

WA & NT & Tasmanian Customers see Below

Roughly every 4-6 weeks so we can put all orders together & complete the WA & NT & Tas Quarantine Protocols in one batch & minimise the cost to you.

Next WA & NT & Tasmanian orders go Friday 18th September 2020.

We need your order by the 4.00 PM Monday 14th of September, QLD time before this date as we go through an intricate Quarantine Inspection process 7.00am Thursday & need to do this in one batch to make the process feasable.
The Quarantine Protocol cost of $10 is included in your freight charge.

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
