Hello Spring - time to plant

September has arrived and, in Cairns at least, this means we have had a couple of warmer days and just as importantly warmer nights. THIS ALL INDICATES IT IS PLANTING SEASON. Now is the perfect time to start planning what heliconia and ginger root stock you need to create that perfect garden. For us in Far North Queensland planting has begun so for the more southern dwellers, another month and you will also be able to get going. There is a variety of colours, heights and textures within both the heliconia and ginger families so don't be afraid to mix and match. many of the plants flower year round but others such as the beehives flower is succession starting with apricot beehives and finishing with the borneo red cone. If you aren't sure we are happy to help so just send us an email and we will try and help you out.

We had a fabulous weekend last weekend with the Cairns Festival culminating with the Carnival on Collins. Was a great day with over 30,000 people attending. If you are ever up this way around fathers day look out for this event. Uniquely Cairns and a great market day.
