Permaculture is a creative way we can live an abundant lifestyle whilst treading more lightly on the Earth. By cooperating with Nature and caring for the Earth and its people we can provide for our needs of food, shelter, financial and social structures and work together to create ecologically sound communities. Ask us about how to design with Nature to produce a sustainable, resilient and productive garden which will enrich lives.
Herbs have been used throughout the centuries to promote health, accompany ceremonies and enhance our living environment. We stock a range of herbs used by herbalists, aromatherapists and dyers. Some you’ll recognise from your Granny’s garden and others you will never have heard of before.
Butterfly & beneficial bug attracting Plants
A good garden begins with rich healthy soil to produce strong nutritious plants. A flourishing garden is full of biodiversity and in balance. Using broad spectrum chemical sprays will quickly throw off the natural balance and lower the amount of visiting insect friends. Flowering plants will attract pollinators to your garden to ensure bountiful crops. Predator bugs which keep the pest insects in check can also be encouraged to thrive in your garden this way.
We stock a wide range of fruit and nut tree varieties suited to our South East Queensland subtropical climate. Our stock includes citrus, stone fruit, tropical fruits, berries and some uncommon types you may have never tried before.
