DID YOU KNOW

* The Deciduous gingers are often the best answer for areas with a cold winter. This is because there is no foliage in winter to be damaged by cold. When spring temperatures get to around 30oC they will remerge and flower quickly. Each year they will multiply for you.
* Some people phone and say its now spring (say october) and that plant has not come up yet. The answer is always have you had a couple of weeks of say 30oC temperatures.
* You can make a tasty and healthy coffee brew from its leaves….see below.
* Just like you need hot weather (not just the onset of spring) to get tropical rhizomes and tubers to sprout….cooler &/or wet weather in autum will bring on their dormant period much earlier.
* All the amazing things your body accompilshes…like the millions of perfect chemical reactions completed daily to keep you ticking over is NOT done by you consciously!! Same with a plant. No scientist can yet explain nor ever will explain what the force is to make this happen. This is the energy of creation. Its a marvel to appreciate daily.
* Darwins Theory of Evolution espoused 150 years ago was predicted by Indian Mystics 2,500 years ago!!
* You don’t need to gamble when you acquire a plant from Paradise!! All our plants are guaranteed to arrive alive and well ….and to survive 4 months. After that its up to you..

 

Last Months Did You Know
* We have been sending parcels of plants out to happy customers since 1984.
* We have been studying plants since 1967 at two Universities, two Research Institutes and in the field every day over 50 years in coastal, western & mountain areas of NSW, QLD, NT, Papua New Guinea, the Americas & New Zealand, Sumatra, Sarawak, Kalimantan, UK, Japan…using mainly feet but also aircraft & aerial photograph interpretation. In the last 27 years in Paradise we have applied this broad knowledge to get the most interesting plants we can for you.
PS Couldnt find much in Pakistan,Afghanistan or Iran.
* Worm vermicaste is easily the best plant invigorator you can spray or water into your plants. Do it consistently and you will get more flowers, more fruit and improved plant health.
* Vermicaste is not for the lazy gardener however as you need a little worm farm or buy some vermicaste in from a bigger worm farm.
* If you are a gardenener or any kind of plant nurturer you are also a creator. Creation is the platform of our existence from where our satisfaction, peace and happiness comes.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

THE GAMBLER ….That’s You

1. If you want to see a gambler in action go talk to a farmer who must invest thousands in the hope of rain at the right time and then a market that’s not oversupplied.
2. Go talk to a soldier going to war.
3. Go talk to any business owner who buys and hopes to sell in order to put food on the table & yes not every day brings in a profit.
4. Go talk to those waiting years for an investment in shares to come in.
5. Go talk to the kid who leaves school and decides his/her vocation on a whim.
6. Go talk to any parent who hopes their children will have a good life.
7. Go talk to the couple about to be married.
8. Go talk to the person taking on a new job

Go talk & then you will realise how much people gamble every day of their lives and not every day is a profitable one.
THE THING IS NOTHING IS REALLY PREDICTABLE. We can listen to expert advice in that field but they can only predict on the odds or the percentage chance of a result. …there are no certainties. And experts are limited by their own psychology and life experience. The media sticks to their chosen ‘Expert’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BAD FEELINGS ARE ONLY CHEMICAL REACTIONS
When we get a feeling somewhere in our body this is caused by a chemical reaction concocted from our brain and sent to that area. This reaction only lasts up to 90 seconds. Everyone has a system of fears learnt as a basic survival mechanism we are born with.
No survival mechanism equals no survival. Sometimes repetition in our mind or
a traumatic event fears lead to anxiety.
If we feel a fear or anxious thought in our body its important to recognise just where that feeling sits within us. If you dont it can become painful and even lead to a nasty disease.
THE IMPORTANT THING ONCE WE RECOGNISE IT, IS ACCEPT THAT AND TO KNOW THAT THE CHEMICAL REACTION HAS BEEN PROVEN BY SCIENCE TO ONLY LAST 60-90 SECONDS.
Know that we can ride out that 90 seconds….just ride it out however it feels and the bad feeling will go away. The only way the feeling will continue is if we keep recreating it in our minds. The way to stop any repetitive reaction is to take a series of say 20 deep breaths. My belief is that breathing oxygen into that chemical reaction will change the reaction. The breathing will change your bodily reaction to your thought.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PLANTS ‘DYING BACK’

Many plants are deciduous…meaning they drop their leaves in winter.
Some are semi deciduous …..meaning they drop a good percentage of their foliage.
They do this because the conditions are too cold for them to produce foliage wood, flowers or fruit etc. They drop the foliage so they do not have to use energy supporting it.
There are also plants that are what we could call ‘opportunistic deciduous’…..these will drop some of their foliage when conditions are not to their liking..eg too wet, too hot, too dry. Before foliage drops it might go brown, yellow or black or even get spotty…a sign the leaf is about to retire. This is just another survival mechanism for plants.
Plants that grow on rhizomes or tubers …like many gingers, caladiums, alocasias, colocasias, amorphophallus & many other tropical plants may be deciduous in colder areas and evergreen in the tropics (not always). In this way they can easily survive the winter cold. All you need do is to be sure the tuber or rhizome does not rot or freeze.

TRUE LIES

The lady who lives on the hill above our place was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. “If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, ‘Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait.'”
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, “Ryan, you be Jesus!”

 

 

 

 

 

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.
