Happy New Year to You and have faith different weather is on its way. That’s Nature its always different and can’t really be predicted.
The words of Karl Humboldt may be appropriate to you. ……’Natural objects themselves, even when they make no claim to beauty, excite the feelings, and occupy the imagination. Nature pleases, attracts, delights, merely because it is nature. We recognize in it an Infinite Power.’ – Karl Wilhelm Humboldt
A great year will be Yours..

DID YOU KNOW

* Watering of plants can be cut by 400% by mulching with a layer about 10-20cm thick around your plant. You can mulch with bark, woodchip, compost, shredded & unshredded newspaper, sawdust & shavings, rice hulls and many other materials that are locally available.
* Watering in beneficial plant microbes eg worm vermicaste & ‘Grow’, will also make your plant more efficient at obtaining and retaining water as the army of billions of microbes establishes on the root and leaf surfaces for the benefit of the plant.
* Although a cow has no upper front teeth, it grazes up to 8 hours a day, taking in about 45 kg (100 lb) of feed and the equivalent of a bath tub full of water. A healthy cow gives about 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime. A cow has four stomachs: the rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum. The rumen is the largest stomach and acts as a fermentation chamber. Cows release hydrocarbon mostly by burping.
* Western Sumatra (4 Million Population) has a Matriarchal Society. This means that all possessions are passed down the female line. When a man marries he usually moves into the home of the wifes family..the home is owned by her mother & run by the mother with the help of an elder uncle on her side of the family. In the case of the married couple we were discussing …if the wife dies..the husband is kicked out of the house with nothing! This has no resemblance to western society where male & female have equal property rights.
* Insects are attracted into carnivorous plants by their intoxicating scent & bright colours. They find it hard to escape the digestive enzymes awaiting them at the bottom of the tube because of downward pointing hairs along the inside of the tube.
* The only way us humans can reduce forest fire intensity is to reduce fuel loads in our forests. Lazy governments have neglected this scientific fact and let fuel loads build up…to levels 10 or 20 times more than under old time Aboriginal Management!!

 

Last Months Did You Know
* What we call the flower of many plants is in fact an amazing colourful bract produced by nature to attract pollinators… and so survival of the species. The true flower may be inconspicious like the Anthuriums and most of the other Aroids.
* Plants do not uptake the nutrients in fertiliser in the cold months of winter however a dose of slow release fertiliser is OK as the nutrients will start dissolving into your potting media ready to be taken up in spring.
* You can feed vermicaste to plants right through winter and your plants will be grateful and react as if is spring. Vermicaste is great because it contains billions of beneficial microbes that will proect the plant from disease and harmful insects as well as help the roots absorb more nutrients.
* The human gut system also contains billions of beneficial microbes and hundreds of different species which are in constant war with disease carrying microbes. If this flora of the gut gets out of balance it will have an effect on your immune system and can be the cause of some modern day psychological problems like ADHD, ADD, Autism,Dyslexia, Depression, Schizophrenia and Dyspraxia (see Dr Natasha Campbell-McBrideMD, MMedSci(Neurology0,MMedSci (nutrition)…Gut And Psychology Syndrome…Natural Treatment for…) * I might add that Such an imbalance can also effect Memory Loss.

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..

Delivers outstanding results every time it is applied to ornamentals, fruit and vegetables and herbs in fact anything. But there’s much more to fertiliser than meets the eye. Many ‘Fertilisers’, although supplying a stated quantity of plant available nutrients, fail to be biologically sustainable and almost without exception, create a weak link in the growing chain..

Available in 1, 2.5, 10 and 20 litre bottle. This is concentrated fertiliser so Mix at a ratio of 100:1 with water!
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.

 

 

 

 

 

Great Artesian Basin & Lake Eyre BasinGreat Artesian Basin

On a trip to Mt Isa we were fascinated by the water collection system from the Channel Country into River Systems like the Georgina, Diamantina & Cooper’s Creek and the Barcoo into the Lake Ayre depression. There is cattle fattening country that rarely gets rain!!! …but gets water fed from the northern monsoonal rain. The Lake Eyre Basin is the worlds largest internal river system! A fascinating place. Everywhere we travelled you could see high cooling tanks where water is cooled after being drawn up from bores into the Great Artesian Basin (one of the worlds largest). The average bore depth is 500m but they go down to 2000m in some places. The water temperature is 30oC in the shallower areas up to 100oC in deeper areas. Water quality is generally good but high sodium levels make it unsuitable for irrigation.

Fires and the Truth about Hazard Reduction Burning
When you hear the upcoming debates about reducing fuel loads on the ground in forests keep in mind the following:

1. Science has shown that by reducing fuel on the ground we reduce fire intensity. It is the only way for humans to reduce intensity.
2. Strategic hazard reduction burning is largely carried out by volunteer Bush Fire Brigades… a huge job but is limited in scope and largely to protect towns.
3. Broad scale aerial hazard reduction burning used to be done in the cool of late autumn and winter by dropping incendiary capsules from an aeroplane over thousands of hectares when conditions were perfect to achieve a low cool flame height … a few hours to do large areas.
4. Backburning is completely different…it is done during an actual bushfire. You burn back into a fire from a road or track when conditions are good to stop it crossing that road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notes on the Climate Change Industry

Are those of us who know we cant change the weather being led up the garden path by the doomsday cults who apparently can change the weather?

Scientific findings have never been based on consensus… where an imagined majority of believers from ‘The Science’ makes an outcome true. Please someone tell the media!! That is how politics works..not science…the pollies swing where they think the most votes are. Consensus is the opposite of Science. Scientific Research always starts off with an open mind and it does not make assumptions.
Beware of institutions and people on the funding gravy train of the Climate Change Industry….its a self fulfilling industry based on one way unaudited research and scaremongering, bullying and egotism.

THERE HAS BEEN OVER 70 BILLION DOLLARS OF PUBLIC MONEY SPENT ON RESEARCH TO PROVE MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE EXISTS .
HOW MUCH HAS BEEN SPENT ON RESEARCHING THE OPPOSITE HYPOTHESIS
….ZILCH !!! How much has been spent on auditing the Science that has been undertaken ZILCH.

Remember the media thrives on Bad News and we will always have the Doomsday People who also thrive on bad news…the two go well together

If you are interested in the facts about climate change and not the bias we receive from the Media you could start by checking out skepicalscience.com. There are thousands of scientists who believe we are being led up the garden path

TRUE LIES

Last week over at Caloundra we saw a blind man with a seeing eye dog at his side, walk into a grocery store. He walks to the middle of the store, picks up the dog by the tail, and starts swinging the dog around in circles over his head.The store manager, who has seen all this, thinks this is quite strange. So, he decides to find out what’s going on. The store manager approaches the blind man swinging the dog and says, “Pardon me. May I help you with something ? ”The blind man says, “No thanks. I’m just looking around.”

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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; Rareplants…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.

SPECCY PLANTS IN BAMBOO POTS

Our Bamboo Pots come from Bamboo grown here at Paradise in Nambour.
They have a base about 4cm from the bottom. The base is the natural division between the culms. We have not put drainage holes in the base as water will slowly drain anyway and this might be better. In any case a drainage hole is so simple to make with the light push of a screwdriver. If you decided you want to sit the pot in a container to collect or hold water the 4cm base allows an air space to humidify and absorb up but not to saturate the plant itself. Your plant comes in a separate temporary plastic pot…just repot it into the Bamboo Pot. The Bamboo Pot comes full of Coco Peat Fibre for you to use. Most plants love this material.

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.

Euphorbia species, Citrus species, Microcitrus species, Hibiscus species, Azalea species, Feijoa species, Vaccinium species Blueberry, Rhododendron, Vireya.Save
