Open Garden Visit – Tani Tei En Japanese garden Gold Coast

Last year we managed to get down to Currumbin, on the Gold Coast, to visit ‘Tani Tei En’ Japanese garden, which was open for just a weekend. We saw a lot of very cool plants – especially loving the blossoms, and the pin-cushion luecadendrons. They also had a hive of native bees – which are […]

How to Train your Ceropegia

If you’re anything like us, these ceropegias, or chain of hearts, plants are high on your all-time favourite list. Not only easy to care for, and cute as buttons from your local craft store, they are also warmly nostalgic and Nanna-ish, for some reason. We like to think of them as heirloom plants – things […]

Upcycling Fuzzy Faux Fur into Plant Holders

Ever wondered what to do with that old pair of slipper-boots that’s too worn out to wear, but still looks ok at the top? Of course you’ve wondered that, we all have right? If you’re a plant person like all of us are, then you know exactly what to do with it – upcycle it […]

African Violet Plant – Gold Coast

African Violets are beautiful little plants – with one drawback – they don’t like to be watered from the top, nor be too soggy underneath. So how to fix the problem, but neatly? One of the most common ways is to sit the plant’s container on top of a take-away container filled with water – […]

Chain of Hearts in Hanging Globe

We have always had a soft spot for chain of hearts plants, they remind us nanna’s and heritage backyards and all things good. We have them in store from time to time – do check with us if you are after some!

Hoya Plant – flowering!

If you are anything like us you will appreciate the awesomeness of these super cute waxy starry flowers! Hoyas have a mind of their own, sometimes flowering sometimes not, but this one we had in store flowered at least 6 times in 6 months! How good is that! Granted, we aren’t always so fortunate with […]

Old aluminium tea-pots are a favourite of ours too […]

New succulents – Crassula Undulata

We have added some new succulents to the shop – these funky curly-leaf crassula. They are pretty easy to care for, just a little water once a week, but they are ok if they dry out a bit between times. We are loving the pairing of their grey-toned foliage with the concrete planters. check them […]

What we love about – Fittonias

Fittonias, also known as ‘nerve plants’ are lovely shade plants which are fantastic for terrariums and other indoor uses, also for planting in damp-ish shady areas outside. They love low to medium light. They will go well in a window if not in the hot hot sun (e.g. a window that receives just morning light). […]
