The biggest Broccoli ever!!! - Jul 12, 2019
No such thing as indoor plants?
How good is this???????
Home grown Broccoli straight from the garden. I’ve never grown it this big before.
What’s my secret?
I dug Tim’s Cow Manure into the soil first with a dressing of Tim’s FAST FOOD Fertiliser. I mulched with Sugarcane, then planted the seedlings thru the mulch.
I’ve used Yates Tomato and Vegetable Dust to control caterpillars.
The results are amazing.
I’m sure you’ve got Broccoli Envy.
You still have time to grow your own fresh Broccoli. Come and see us for the best seedlings.
You know there’s no such thing as an indoor plant. It’s just that some tropical, jungle plants, just happen to survive growing inside too.
Devils Ivy, or Pothos, grows up trees in Queensland. The leaves grow enormous, they can be 45cms wide.
When grown as an indoor plant, the leaves stay smaller, but it still loves to grow up a totem or spill out of a basket.
If you’re thinking about getting indoor plants, make sure Devils Ivy is on your list. It’s one of the easiest indoor plants to grow.
Even brown thumbs can get this plant to grow. Use our Tim’s Best Potting Mix to get the best results.
Don’t over water in winter, or you might get brown patches on the leaves.
Once you’ve got one, they are easy to grow from a cutting. Simply put a stem in a vase of water until it sprouts roots.
The Indian Community believe that this plant brings them good fortune.
If you put one in your house it might bring you good fortune too.

There’s never been a better time to ring a friend who lives in Queensland.
Ask them about the weather, the kids, what they had for breakfast?
Queenslanders need a little bit of love this week. Yes we did beat them in the footy.
It’s time to prune Roses.
Some people get all worked up about this.
They are so worried that they will do it the wrong way. Don Burke showed us 30 years ago that even when he pruned them with a chain saw, they still grew, and flowered beautifully in spring.
But if you want to be more precise than using a chain saw use secateurs.
Work your way around the rose bush.
Cut each stem back by 75% to an outward facing bud. Remove any sticky branches that grow back towards the middle of the plant. We want air, and sun, to be able to get inside the middle.
Once you’ve pruned your roses spray them with Lime Sulfur. This winter spray kills fungal spores and cleans up any scale insects on the stems of your roses.
Spray the ground around the base.
Wait until September before feeding your roses with an organic based Fertiliser.
Never use chemical Rose foods on potted roses or they will get burnt roots and die.
We still have over 2,000 potted Rose Bushes here at the nursery. We are taking 25% off the marked price in July.
New season fruit trees are here too.
Come for a stroll.
