Due to increasing inquiries about bonsai supplies we now have a bigger selection of pots, tools and wire to complement the existing stock. With this we hope to be able to meet more of the needs of bonsai beginners and experienced bonsai artists. We are getting our pots, tools and wire from Hidden Valley Bonsai so if you see something in their catalogue ( http://www.hiddenvalleybonsai.com.au ) please let us know and we will try to get it in for you.
If you have any questions about how to get started or maintain your bonsai drop in and have a chat.
Below are pictures of some of our bonsai supplies.
Some Bambino bougainvilleas arrived last week, they are smaller than the old bougainvilleas growing to a maximum of 1.5m high or wide and they have less prickles which are also smaller. They like a warm sunny spot and require little maintenance once established. Fertilise with a slow release fertiliser such as Organic Link or Acticote and Sulphate of potash every four months.
Four varieties of Geraldton Wax have just arrived in Beaudesert Hardware, ‘Moonlight Delight’, ‘Paddy’s Pink’, ‘Chantilly Lace’ and ‘My Sweet Sixteen’. These plants all like full sun, sandy soil and need good drainage or they may suffer root rot. The plants also have delicate roots so don’t tease the roots when planting them in fact try to leave them completely un disturbed. They are drought tolerant once established. Picture is of ‘Moonlight Delight’.

Will excel in full sun, with its intoxicating perfume, this award winning rose will always be in the winner’s circle.
Daniel Morecombe Rose
Part proceeds from the sale of this rose will assist the Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc. The Foundation was established to create a legacy for Daniel by providing a safer environment for children. It provides child safety awareness programs across Australia and also helps victims of crime, particularly crimes involving children.
This rose has exquisite, dark red velvety blooms and continuous flowering throughout the
growing season, performing well during our hot summers. The blooms are a classic rose shape with high pointed centres, and they open to a size of approximately 10cm, carried on long, straight stems.
The bush is very disease resistant, tall and upright. At 1.5 to 2m in height, it provides an attractive glossy green foliage as a back drop and it produces many beautiful blooms, creating a wonderful display in your garden as well as spectacular cut-flower rose in arrangements.
The Daniel Morcombe Rose has a light fragrance and has been bred for longevity: flowers last well over a week in a vase.
We have both of these beautiful roses in stock now be quick as stocks are limited.
Wonder Weeder by Hozelock is a new way to weed that’s easy on your back and reduces the amount of spray required and damage to surrounding plants.
Simply Fill, Spray ……Kill – It’s as easy as that to get rid of your annoying weeds
The new Hozelock Wonderweeder offers an efficient, alternative solution for treating weeds on driveways, paths and patios using a weed killer of your choice. Perfect for spot weeding, it has many advantages over a traditional sprayer. Lightweight and easy to use it has a wide range of benefits.
No need to bend down – The upright design allows weeds to be treated and without the need to constantly bend down
Refillable – No wastage as the product is refillable. Fill up with the weed killer of your choice, remembering to follow the chemical supplier’s instructions and dosing ratio guidelines
Easy to measure – The handy dosing cap located in the base of the handle is graduated from 1ml to 5ml to allow accurate measuring of concentrated weed killing solutions. The transparent grey plastic tube has a 300ml capacity.
Push & Go – The weed killer is easily dispensed by pushing down on the ergonomic handle at the top of the Wonderweeder. Depending on the weedkilling solution being used, one application should be sufficient for most weeds, but two is recommended for larger ones.
Accurate Spraying – It offers accurate spraying via the nozzle located within the protective cone. This avoids the accidental spraying of surrounding plants, which can easily happen with traditional sprayers. The 1 metre length enables the treatment of weeds in hard to reach areas
For Safety – The easy-to-twist safety lock mechanism offers peace of mind for when the unit is stored away. For additional safety the Wonderweeder should be stored out of reach of children.
Hibiscus can add a tropical touch to your garden with their lush green foliage and bright colourful flowers. They can vary in height from 60cm to 2.4m and a wide range of colours so pick a suitable variety for your garden.
Plant hibiscus in a sunny or partly shaded spot in well drained soil rich in organic matter. Keep well watered and fertilised, prune leggy branches in early spring to keep the plant compact. This will reward you with a good healthy plant with plenty of flowers. Once established they can survive a lot of neglect. Hibiscus are available now in our nursery.
