How we measure our Plants!

Your plants are bigger than other plants I have bought online!  We hear this a fair bit.  

We think it is important to deliver a plant strong and vigorous and up to the journey, but still young enough to quickly establish.

Many online nurseries include the pot depth when they describe the plant height, we don't!  

So, when we describe a plant as being 20-25cm tall (our most common size) it is measured from the soil level to the top of the plant gaining you a much bigger plant than if measured from the base of the pot.

Still looking for Christmas Presents?

How about a living gift?  I must admit I am not the happiest Christmas shopper.  Don't get me wrong, I love to find the perfect gift, but it just seems harder and harder each year.  When I buy a gift, I put lots of thought into it.  Is this something they will treasure, use or display proudly or will they just quietly put it away to re-gift the next year?  I want my presents to be memorable, special, cherished.

Have you considered a plant this Christmas?  A plant is a wonderful living gift that will continue to bring happy thoughts throughout the year and for many years to come.  Perhaps we can provide the plant and you a beautiful planter?  Perhaps your loved one is an avid gardener and nothing would surprise them more than a gift wrapped box with botanical delights!

Bush Treasures - The Gumby Gumby Tree

There is something to be said for planting a native tree!  

Over generations they have uniquely adapted to their environment in such a way that success is almost guaranteed.  Being around for a long time, the native trees have revealed their unique properties to Australia's Aboriginal people - who discovered the use, healing properties and food potential of many, many plants and trees and passed down the knowledge through word of mouth.

The Gumby Gumby Tree is one of those trees.  It sports very attractive, weeping willow-like foliage and is slow growing, making this tree suitable for parks and gardens.
