Azaleas and Dogs - keep them apart

Monday, 30 October 2017 3:15:13 pm Australia/Brisbane

If your dog eats just a few leaves of azalea (or rhododendron, its close relative), it may cause vomiting or even coma.

So if you have dogs, plant something else for spring and autumn colour.

Here's our recommendations for alternatives to azaleas for your garden :Read More

Lilies and Cats - it's not a match

Monday, 30 October 2017 2:10:59 pm Australia/Brisbane

If you have cats, lilies turn from divine to deadly.

All parts of the lily (Lilium), if eaten, can be very harmful to pet cats. The plant causes vomiting, lethargy, and ultimately kidney failure.

The related day lilies (Hemerocallis) , golden and unscented; and lily of the valley (Convallaria) with tiny white scented bells, are also on the no-go-list for cat owners.

So if you have pet cats, look for lily alternatives to plant in your garden.

Brilliant Foliage for every Season

Thursday, 18 May 2017 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane


Nandina border

Looking for a hardy foliage plant for borders? Meet our Nandinas!


Nandina, sometimes called Sacred Bamboo or Heavenly Bamboo, is a beautiful east Asian shrub which suits all kinds of gardens very well.

Plants have beautiful leaf colouration even in shade, and in winter when little else is going on outside. You can add year-round colour and interest to your garden, with little effort.


They’re super-tough in heat and low temperatures, and resistant to deer and rabbits.


Compact and low-growing, Nandinas need no pruning. Unclipped, they produce white flowers and red berries loved by birds. And if you want a more formal look, they clip to a neat hedge or border.

Now is the perfect time to plant sweet pea seeds

Friday, 24 March 2017 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane

Sweet Pea Flowers

Now is the perfect time to plant sweet pea seeds.

They’re a big seed, so it’s easy to do – get the kids and grand-kids to join in!

If you soak the seed overnight in cool water, they’ll germinate more readily. Sweet peas have a long taproot so you’ll need to make sure they have lots of room to grow if you’re starting them off in pots rather than directly into the ground.

If you’re growing the climbing varieties, fix up some trellis, wires, or netting for them in advance, ready to scramble over and cling on to. If you don’t have the room for a climbing sweet pea, we have a dwarf version too, that grows low and shrubby.

When, Where, Why, How and What to Fertilise your Plants

Friday, 24 March 2017 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane

Woman Gardening

First up, why do we need to fertilise our plants

Well, you don’t have to. It’s your garden after all. But your plants will grow so much better if you do. Fertilisers will help your plants develop:


  • More Flowers
  • More Fruit
  • More leaf growth
  • More root growth
  • Bigger size
  • Stronger healthier structure
  • More disease resistance

So you can see why giving Mother Nature a helping hand can be a very good thing.

Time to Plant Bulbs for Spring Colour

Monday, 6 March 2017 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane

Bulb planting

We’re still sunbaking in the heat of summer, and we need to start thinking about spring? Yes!

A little easy planting now, and we can enjoy a bright fragrant garden from the tail end of winter to the start of next summer.

Bulbs are such rewarding plants to grow - they are child’s play to plant, happy growing in gardens or containers, and can slip into the tiniest spaces to provide a burst of bright colour.

If you have littl’uns, we’ve even got Colchicums, autumn crocus, that will sprout and flower in a dish of water on the kitchen windowsill. You can watch them grow!

We’ve put together a varied range of spring-flowering bulbs for a range of climates, from cold to subtropical.
Some are traditional scented flowers from the Mediterranean, some are more unusual flowers from South Africa.

Here's our top ten tips for successful bulb planting
