Smother Grass

$5.75

A shade tolerant grass providing thick cover of a soft, textured, broad-leaved lawn. Drought tolerant, resistant to weed invasion and only requires approximately 2 hours of sun per day. Useful in shady orchard inter-rows where a ground cover is desirable to resist erosion. Sub-tropical and perennial where it prefers good drainage. Best not mown too close to the ground. The variety is more suited for domestic lawns, parks and garden areas and should be used with caution near native bushland where it may out-compete delicate, native shade-tolerant herbs and grasses in the understorey.

Hedge Plants

Trees and Plants > Hedge Plants


The plants that are listed below are trees and shrubs that respond better to clipping into hedges than others. These tough hedging plants are used for protection, privacy screens and aesthetic value. If you wish to create a hedge which is really dense and bushy from the ground upwards it is advisable to plant young, small plants. Many people look at the small seedlings in tubes and imagine it will be years before they will achieve anything which looks like a hedge however, if larger plants are chosen the result can often be that the hedge is rather gappy at the base. Also larger plants are more expensive and are more likely to fail than small ones. Hedges like a sunny position. Generally hedges like reasonable well-drained soil. Planting and Pruning requirements for a new hedge are very important to follow. Some people hesitate to cut their hedging plants back, or forget to do it frequently enough and with many varieties this will result in a hedge which is not dense at the base.

Parrot Tree

$17.75 ($17.75-$29.90 choose a size)

The common name of Parrot Tree derives from the large numbers of parrots attracted to the tree during its flowering season. Flowers appear in spring, are numerous, deep red, and filled with nectar, although exact flowering times vary from tree to tree. The name, Drunken Parrot Tree derives from the fact that the individual flowers contain so much nectar that it has a tendency to ferment before the birds can eat it all, resulting in a mild narcotic effect on the birds. A medium to large, spreading tree, growing up to 20 meters, but more commonly from 5 to 10 meters depending on conditions.
