Azaleas and Dogs - keep them apart

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

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.

Here's our recommendations :Read More

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.

Amazing Azaleas

Friday, 7 October 2016 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane

Flowering Azaleas

Amazing Azaleas!

Tall evergreen hedges. Bright flowering shrubs. Potted colour for decks and balconies.

Azaleas fit into almost every space in your garden. These free-flowering shrubs will lift your spirits and fill your garden with colour. Their evergreen compact shape gives form and structure year-round.


Year-round beauty – in an easy-to-manage size

Many azaleas will grow happily in part-shade. Our Ozbreed Autumn range (also known as Encore™ Azaleas) are specially bred to cope with cold weather, AND fly through a hot dry Aussie summer.

Some azaleas flower twice a year, giving you double the value. And some are so free-flowering, it’s hard to see the leaves for all the blooms!


Which azalea is right for you?

Waterwise cottage style gardens

Friday, 7 October 2016 11:21:00 am Australia/Brisbane

Tip pruning syzygium

Create a waterwise cottage style garden using flowering natives 

Australian natives are hardy, attract wildlife, have a long flowering season and feature all the characteristics we love in cottage gardens. Contrasting foliage, flowers in soft muted tones and evergreen leaves. They're naturally easy-care and require much less water once established.

 

Natives for cottage gardens

Traditional cottage gardens are built using layers of colour arranged in varying levels using seasonal flowering plants, contrasting foliage and stones for pathways and texture. Plants used in English cottage gardens need regular water to flourish. Natives are a great water saving alternative and attract wildlife year round.

See our plant selection below to help get you started.
