Mozzie Madness

Mozzie Madness

It’s mosquito season my friends! Those pesky little enemies are planning attacks on your next BBQ.

But don’t let them send you running inside yelling expletives and shaking your fist in the air. Hope is not lost my friend!

Get the upper hand the ?NATURAL? way with our range of mosquito repelling plants.

Rubbing the leaves of these plants releases an oil into the air the mosquitos find SUPER GROSS.

Go one step further and also rub the leaves of the plant on the skin as a light repellent. (Not recommended for people with sensitive skin)

Smells much more delicious than toxic sprays, check out the range below:

Leptospermum Liversidgei or “Mozzie Blocker”

Leptospermum Liversidgei or ‘Mozzie Blocker’

Leptospermum Liversidgei or ‘Mozzie Blocker’  foliage has a high citronella oil content that forms a barrier for mosquitos in Summer with the scent of citronella filling the air surrounding the plant when the plant is rubbed.

As an added bonus, ITS A REALLY PRETTY PLANT ? With soft pink clusters of flowers. Essential oils can also be distilled from the leaves ??

Lemon Scented Geranium or “Mozzie Plant”

Lemon Scented Geranium or ‘Mozzie Plant’

Pelargonium Crispum – Lemon Scented Geranium

Mmmm, can you smell that lemon-y citrus-y scent in the air? ? That’s Lemon Scented Geranium or ‘Mozzie Plant’ this cutie with it’s delicate pink flowers releases a plume of citronella or a citrus lemon like fragrance when the leaves are brushed against or crushed in the hands.

Nepeta Cataria Or “Catnip”

Nepeta Cataria Or 'Catnip'

Nepeta Cataria or ‘Catnip’ – Apparently it’s not just for your cats to get super buzzed on! ?

One of the volatile oils in catnip is citronellol, which is useful as an insect repellent when crushed, rubbed or distilled. It’s useful against both mosquitos and aphids.

Furthermore, the effectiveness is also proven better than DEET, which is none other but a chemical substance often used as ingredient of factory-made mosquito repellent products.

Rosmarinus Officinalis – “Rosemary”

Rosmarinus Officinalis - 'Rosemary'

Rosmarinus Officinalis – ‘Rosemary’ – This is not just for a Sunday Lamb Roast! It ha fragrant foliage but it also repels mosquitoes and other insects.  

You can also toss some rosemary in a fire for an aromatic insect repellent!

A simple repellent spray is made by adding 1 cup dried rosemary to a 4 cups of water, boiling it in a pot for 20 to 30 minutes. Pour a 4 cups of cool water into another container then strain the rosemary water into the container.

Pour small amounts of the blend into squirt bottles to apply directly to skin and outdoor pets. Store the unused portions in the refrigerator; discard it when it no longer smells strongly of rosemary.

Our beautiful customers, Joan and Bruce, came in today on this lovely Sunday morning for a garden design! They came in with a fantastic hand-drawn layout of their garden, some photos of the space and only one idea to have a Weeping Cherry as a feature tree. Chris sat down with them to run through ideas and they designed a stunning cottage-style garden together with a show of eye-catching colour! All for only $620 bucks, design and delivery inclusive! Check out these great photos of the plants they chose together.

Craig wanted to win a woman’s heart and he decided to impress her by decorating her balcony with attractive and interesting plants. He spent a half hour with a little help from Chris choosing colourful specimens that he thought would suit his lovely lady’s balcony area. His entire selection cost a little more than a bunch of flowers but will make a much longer lasting impression. We’re now waiting with our fingers crossed to hear if good hearted Craig was successful.
