World Environment Day 2020!

World Environment Day is celebrated worldwide on June 5. A platform for action, World Environment Day is the United Nations day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment.

Origins of the World Environment Day

It’s the 48th World Environment Day this year, and the first one took place in Stockholm, Sweden in 1972.  Back then, it was the first major conference of it’s kind. The aim was to focus on the development of environmental politics, environmental issues, and encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment. The responsibility for the primary celebrations rotates to a different country each year.

Theme and Host Country for World Environment Day 2020

World Environment Day 2020 will focus on Biodiversity and will be hosted in Colombia in partnership with Germany. This year World Environment Day 2020 theme is “Celebrating Biodiversity”, with the slogan “Time for Nature.”

“With 1 million species facing extinction, there has never been a more important time to focus on biodiversity.”

Colombia has put together a wide-ranging series of events featuring experts on biodiversity issues from across the globe. Click Here to view the programme.

Threats to Biodiversity

Australia has such a diverse unique flora and fauna

‘Many of the Earth’s ecosystems are nearing critical tipping points of depletion or irreversible change, pushed by high population growth and economic development. By 2050, if current consumption and production patterns remain the same and with a rising population expected to reach 9.6 billion, we will need three planets to sustain our ways of living and consumption.’

Human activities have significantly disturbed three-quarters of the world’s land surface. Two-thirds of ocean areas are also impacted by human activity, through overfishing, industrial pollution and oil spills, and garbage accumulation. Wildlife species are disappearing tens to hundreds of times faster now than in the past 10 million years. By 2030, the world may have lost one out of every four known species. Scientists have declared this the sixth mass extinction event in world history. At current rates of species extinction, the sixth event is on track to be more severe than the one that wiped out the dinosaurs.

Here are the 6 main threats to Biodiversity:

  1. Climate Change
    Increase in the temperature of the atmosphere has major effects on the environment such as the seasons, rising of the sea levels, and glacial retreats, floods and as we have seen here in Australia, more bush fires and droughts.
  2. Habitat Loss and Degradation
    Habitat loss are sometimes caused by natural events like geological calamities but more commonly by human activities such as deforestation, diverting rivers, mining, fracking and many other destructive behaviors.
  3. Pollution
    Be it in water ,air, or land pollution, all forms of pollution are a threat to all life forms on Earth. Recently with the Covid 19 pandemic, we have witnessed a decrease in pollution due to a slowing down in human activities, and that was refreshing, but on the other hand we saw many plastic gloves and face masks washed up in the ocean and killing wildlife.
  4. Invasive Species
    An exotic or unnatural species can be any kind of organism that has been introduced to a foreign habitat. This introduction can cause major threats to the native species. For example Cats are a major threat to our native bird population here in Australia.
  5. Over Exploitation
    This refers to the act of over-harvesting species and natural resources at rates faster than they can actually sustain themselves in the wild.
  6. Other Threats
    There are many other threats such as the spreading of diseases from farmed animals to wild animals. The impact of roads and highways reduce the habitat area of many species. Noise and perturbations to the environment such as sonar uses in the sea that disrupts cetacean species communications and many more.

Australia’s Biodiversity loss

Since the arrival of Europeans in Australia, just over 200 years ago, there has been an extraordinary increase in the rate of environmental change and in the loss of biodiversity in our ecosystems. One of the main threats to Australia’s biodiversity is habitat loss, and land-clearing is happening at a staggering rate. Projections suggest that 3m hectares of untouched forest will have been bulldozed in eastern Australia by 2030, thanks to a thriving livestock industry and governments that refuse to step in.

Some of these ecosystems lost include:

  • 75% of rainforests and nearly 50% of all forests;
  • over 60% of coastal wetlands in southern and eastern Australia;
  • nearly 90% of temperate woodlands and mallee;
  • more than 99% of south-eastern Australia’s temperate lowland grasslands;
  • over 83% of Tasmania’s lowland grasslands and grassy woodlands;
  • about 95% of brigalow scrub that originally grew in Queensland;
  • over 90% of Victoria’s grasslands.
The thylacine, now extinct, is one of the largest known carnivorous marsupials, evolving about 4 million years ago. The last known live animal was captured in 1933 in Tasmania.

We concluded that exactly 100 plant and animal species are validly listed as having become extinct in the 230 years since Europeans colonized Australia. You can read more about this here.

Clearly, human activities have the most significant impact on biodiversity loss. At present, our planet continues to face these threats to biodiversity.

IN THE FUTURE, YOUR CHILDREN OR THE YOUNGER GENERATION MIGHT ASK YOU A QUESTION ALONG THE LINES OF, “WHEN THE CRISIS ON BIODIVERSITY BECAME SO RAMPANT DURING THE EARLY 2000S, WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT IT?” WHAT WILL YOUR ANSWER BE?

Things you can do to help biodiversity and the environment:

Sydney, Australia – March 15, 2019  Climate Emergency rally
  • Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three “R’s” to conserve natural resources and landfill space. Reduce your use of water, electricity and other non renewable and recycle everything as much as possible.
  • Volunteer and Educate. Volunteer for cleanups or tree planting in your community. Teach others, especially children to help them understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
  • Conserve Water & Energy. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean. You can also save grey-water from your sink to water your garden. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room! Does your WiFi or your phone need to be always on?
  • Shop wisely & Choose sustainable. Buy Local, buy organic.Learn how to make smart food and seafood choices. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
  • Drive less. Bike or walk more, and use your car sparingly. Do some car pooling with your mates and use public transport.
  • Plant as many trees as you can. Go for Native trees and flowers that support the local wildlife the best. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change. They help the biodiversity and ecosystems to survive and thrive. If you have land, seek your local council or nurseries to see if there are any free or cheap plants. If you have limited space, consider pots. And if you do not have space, volunteer some time or money to tree planting organisations. Click here for our big selection of very cheap plants.
  • QUIT the use of pesticides and petroleum based fertilizers in your gardens. These often have knock-on effects in wildlife populations and run off into water courses with adverse effects for the plants and animals living there. Ask your Local Authority to do the same.
  • VOTE! Find out about legislation affecting biodiversity, make contact with your local political representatives, tell them how you feel and ask them what they will do to help.
  • Support people and groups who are acting on long-term ecological sustainability. Find out about activists group and share their message and donate to their cause. This is vital for our future!

20 Cents For a Native Plant!

For this long Weekend only (6,7 and 8th of June) and to promote biodiversity we will be selling native plants for the symbolic price of 20 Cents for Kids only. As children are the future, they should be taught and encouraged to plant!

That will be an Economy grade plant that is Native to Australia such a Kangaroo Paw or Callistemon. There is a limit of one plant per child and isthis offer is IN store only at 1477 Sydney Road, Campbellfield.

We hope that this article gave you some inspiration or incentive to make changes to your lifestyle. Thank you for your time and remember that: Protecting our planet starts with you!

Some plants that are great for biodiversity:

Low growing flowers and herbs such as Daisies, Lavenders and Thyme are excellent for bees and other beneficial insects in the garden.

Flowering shrubs and trees, especially natives such as Grevillea, Callistemon, Corymbia, Gum Trees, Banksia, Westringia, Tea Tree are all excellent for native bees and birds!

June In the Garden!

June means that half a year is over, and that winter is here for the next couple of months. It is starting to get really cold and we are getting more rainy days.  A lot of the deciduous trees are still shedding their leaves and some plants have slowed their growth down while others are just getting started!
Throw on some warm clothes, get your garden gloves and jump in the garden as there are many things that you can do at this time of the year!

What to plant?

Bare Rooted plants: This is the time of the year where we start receiving all our bare rooted plants. Bare rooted plants are dormant plants with no leaves and soil. These are much cheaper than normal potted plants and are easier to plant for a number of reasons. Click here to read more about bare rooted plants.

We currently we have over 30 varieties of bare rooted roses in store. Click Here

We also have bare rooted weeping flowering and fruiting cherries. Click Here

Veggies: It’s truly cold now, but it is just what some veggies love!  You can plant the whole range of brassica such as cabbage, cauliflower, brocolli, brussel sprouts.
All leafy greens such as asian greens like mizuna, tatsoi or pak choi, lettuce, rocket, spinach, mustards, spring onions, leek, kale and swiss chard. 
Legumes such as Snow Peas and Sugar snap peas are very easy plants to grow right now, just make sure to provide some trellis for them.
Root crops such as radish, beetroot, turnips, swedes, parsnips, carrots, onions, potatoes and garlic. All of those would take several months before harvest, except for radish which are ready after 30 days!
Some great companion plants for all these are herbs such as sage, winter thyme, parsley, mint, chives, coriander, dill, oregano, marjoram, etc that deter pests such as caterpillars.

To see our full selection of Fruits, veggies and herbs in store. Click Here!

Winter flowers: There is a wide range of winter flowers that you can put in your garden that will flower during winter. Click here for flowering perrenials.

Other Plants: With the cool weather it is a generally good period to put any other plant in the ground! The roots have time to grow during winter and you will see some amazing growth in Spring!

What to do?

Rake in all the leaves from the deciduous trees and make a nice compost pile. If you already have a compost pile, add the autumn leaves and turn it over and mix them well for a winter composting pile.

Soil Improvement – Before putting in your winter veggies and plants it is a great time to add a fresh top layer of organic materials such as compost and manure, ideally in a blend. Remember to scrape back your mulch before doing so.

Scrape back mulch – As the days are getting cold and rainy, it is good to scrape back some of your mulch that has not broken down properly and especially if it too thick. Leaving a thick mulch in winter will keep the soil soggy and give wet feet to your plants. This can also cause fungal problems and diseases to arise.

Watering – Time to dial back the automatic watering system to water the garden less as too much water will cause root rots. If you water manually, you can do it less often. Just poke your finger in the soil and see if it is moist enough. Let nature help you out 😉

Cuttings – Winter is the time for taking hardwood cuttings. Deciduous plants such as roses, wisteria and grapevines are best propagated from hardwood cuttings. Make sure to use the old growth and not new tender ones. Old branches from 1-2 years are not flexible, hence the term hardwood. These have more energy in them to grow into new plants.

Fertilisation – If your hedges are starting to look a little bit yellow, you need to add some dolomite lime to raise the ph slightly and provide the calcium that will keep them nice and green. These are important for all your box type green hedges and great for apple/pears. Feed your camellias, azaleas, daphnes, and rhododendrons now as they are hitting their peak flowering time. Use a specialised food for these plants as they are unique in that they prefer acid soils. Use some general liquid fertiliser such as Charlie Carp (Available in store) on your plants in general to give them a good boost before winter.

Pruning – You can now clean and tidy up all the autumn flowering plants such as asters, cyclamens, sedum and chrysanthemums. It is also good time to prune deciduous shurbs of their sick and unproductive branches. Avoid pruning back the spring flowering plants though.

Moving or transplanting – With the nice cool weather, it is an ideal time to move or transplant plants as the plants have time over winter to grow new roots and be ready for spring. You can re pot plants that have outgrown their pots and are getting root bound. Remove the plant and trim some of the roots at the bottom, shake off some old soil and add some fresh one at the bottom of the pot to give your plant a fresh start. They will love it!
Weeding – Does it ever stop really? Get on your knees and Stay on top of the weeds!

Pest & Disease Control!

At this time you will see a decline in cabbage moths, but there might still be a few flying around and lay their eggs. But it is not of too much concern as they will die off in the cold. You may still have other problems such as aphids and other caterpillars, so planting a range of pest deterrent aromatic herbs along with your plants and veggies is always a good idea!
There are many insects that overwinter on fruit trees and roses. When the leaves have fallen, spray them with white oil to suffocate those insects, and make sure you get a good coverage.

Avoid other fungal disease by raking the old leaves and getting rid of them if they were diseased or if they were not affected, you can safely put them in the compost pile.

It is always rewarding to see the results of your hard work, so most importantly, relax and garden with a smile! It is the best therapy!

Happy Gardening!

Bee Day 2020

We have all heard about the importance of bees for a healthy environment and for the future of our own species. There is no doubt that we need them more than they need us. They are such beautiful, gentle and fascinating little cuties. But do you know what makes them so special?

Today we celebrate World Bee Day! The main purpose of the events is to spread awareness of the significance of bees and other pollinators for our survival. We must realize that simply proclaiming World Bee Day does not do much for bees and other pollinators; the main work aiming towards their preservation still needs to be undertaken and World Bee Day is an excellent opportunity in this regard. Beekeepers and nature conservationists would like to ask everybody to help improve the conditions for bees, thus improving conditions for the survival of people. No major steps are needed; what counts is each and every action that facilitates the existence of bees.

Photo: beepollen.com: Importance of bees!

We need bees. We may take them and other pollinators like butterflies and hoverflies for granted – but they are vital for stable, healthy food supplies. They are key to the varied, colourful and nutritious diets we need and have come to expect.

Bees are perfectly adapted to pollinate, helping plants grow, breed and produce food. They do so by transferring pollen between flowering plants and so keep the cycle of life turning.

The vast majority of plants we need for food rely on pollination, especially by bees: from almonds and vanilla and apples to squashes. Bees also pollinate around 80% of wildflowers, so our countryside would be far less interesting and beautiful without them.

But bees are in trouble. There is growing public and political concern at bee decline across the world. This decline is caused by a combination of stresses – from loss of their habitat and food sources to exposure to pesticides and the effects of climate change.

More than ever before, we need to recognise the importance of bees to nature and to our lives. And we need to turn that into action to ensure they don’t just survive but thrive.

Australian Bee facts:

• Bees also sleep, and sometimes in flowers!

Images: Flicker and Joe Neely: Bees sleeping in flowers

• There are over 1,500 species of Australian native bees.
 • Not all bees are yellow. Native bees can be many different colours, including black, yellow, red metallic green or even black with blue polka dots!
• Commercial honey bees (Apis mellifera) are not native to Australia. They were introduced from Europe in about 1822.
• Not all bees are furry and fat. Some native bees are sleek and shiny.
• The smallest bee native to Australia, the Quasihesma bee found in Cape York, is less than 2mm long! (bottom left image)

Images: Flickr Erica siegel Some Native Australian Bees

• Not all bees can sting. Ten species of Australian native bees are stingless. Stingless beekeeping is becoming very popular due to the delicious honey produced, great crop pollination and no stings of course!
• There are over 30 species of native bees in Victoria alone.

You can purchase this beautiful poster from GinaCransonArtworks !
She has such a beautiful collection of posters and cards with cute bees.

• A single honey bee may collect 1/12 teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.

Here is what you can do to help the bees:

  • Plant nectar-bearing flowers for decorative purposes on balconies, terraces, and gardens.
  • Buy honey and other hive products from your nearest local beekeeper.
  • Raise awareness among children and adolescents on the importance of bees and express your support for beekeepers.
  • Set up a pollinator farm on your balcony, terrace, or garden; you can either make it yourself or buy at any home furnishings store.
  • Preserve old meadows – which feature a more diverse array of flowers – and sow nectar-bearing plants.
  • Cut grass on meadows only after the nectar-bearing plants have finished blooming.
  • Offer suitable farming locations for the temporary or permanent settlement of bees so that they have suitable pasture; as a consequence, they will pollinate our plants, which will thereby bear more fruit.
  • Use pesticides that do not harm bees, and spray them in windless weathereither early in the morning or late at night, when bees withdraw from blossoms.
  • Mulch blooming plants in orchards and vineyards before spraying them with pesticides so that they do not attract bees after being sprayed.

Fancy African Daisy Selection!

Fancy African Daisy Selection!

Osteospermum, or African daisies, have flowers that look very familiar, yet totally foreign. You may even think they’ve been dyed or painted. African daisies look a lot like common daisies, with petals radiating around a center disk. When African daisies were first introduced to the market, they had vivid coloring many weren’t used to seeing.

The flower’s center disks looked as though they are colored with metallic paint. African daisies are definitely unique. The leaves will vary by variety. They can be lance-like or broadly ovate and smooth, toothed, or lobed. Petals can be smooth and flat, like a daisy, or radiate out in a tubular, spoon-shape.

Botanical name: Osteospermum
Height: 30 to 60 centimetres Width: One metre or more
Ideal position: African daisies rely on the sun to open completely, so they love full sun, as well as sandy, well-draining soil. They will tolerate moderate frost.
Suitable spots: Plant your African daisies in the garden or in a container.
When do they bloom? A mass of flowers appears from winter through to spring.
Pests and diseases to watch out for: Keep caterpillars, snails and slugs away.

Monster Grower Sale – Seconds and Surplus! Cheap Plants

Seconds and Surplus
We are clearing out our nursery and our Seconds and Surplus list is growing day by day with cheap cheap plants!
These plants are ideal for low budget garden projects or large properties that are hard to fill. Perfect for anyone who wants to try and save a few $$ or those who like to grab a bargain.

If you are not a confident gardener we recommend not purchasing these plants or purchasing at your own risk as they will need a little tender loving care to be brought back to their former glory. Don’t fret, they will come back! But they just need the right conditions to do so. Otherwise you can just give it a go – they’re pretty cheap anyway!

Why so cheap?
These plants have been discounted for a whole range of reasons!
They may be too tall in the pot, slightly wonky, looking a little thin or straggly or we just have too many of them! In short – they need to go.

And they’re going cheap!

Why are these plants not available for online purchase?

Because we’d like you to see them before you buy. They are not premium quality so they will be looking different from a big, lush plant at full price.

You don’t have to come into the store to see them if you live far away. Just call or email us and request a photo of the stock to be sent to you from our Sales staff. They are more than happy to help ?

Our list is updated daily so you can check for any new bargains to snap up. Numbers are limited so hurry whilst stocks last!

The Great Indoors!

We love the great outdoors so much that we wish we could live out there somewhere in a beautiful forest! As that is not always possible, how about we invite some greenery into our lives and home, to create the great indoors.
