What's happening

We're attuned to what your end customers need so that we can supply you with plants that match current trends and create optimum value for your business.   

In addition to the annual Queensland Garden Expo, events that we attend tend to be training and networking events, and trade expos like Green Expo.

Pictures:  Some of our tropical plants including Beehive Gingers (Zingibers) (left) and Heliconias (right) are feeling the cold at the moment.  If you need some tropical foliage, consider plants like Alpinia nutans or Alpinia malaccensis that will stay green all year.    

Group 1 Peach Clivia

Clivia flowering season

The main flowering season for Clivias is not far away.  Planted now they will add colour to dry shady areas from late August to the end of the year.  Clivias are highly sought after during their flowering season but can still sell well at other times of the year owing to their attractive broad glossy leaves, coloured tags, and usually we have a few in flower even if the majority have finished flowering for the season.    Most customers don't realise that there's such a huge range of colours.

Queensland Garden Expo - 4 days in 2024!

Come and see us at the Queensland Garden Expo at Nambour from the 4th - 7th July 2023.   Queensland's premier garden event is an opportunity to catch up on latest garden trends, meet with people in the industry and have a great day out.  2024 is the expo's 40th anniversary so the organisers are planning a bigger and better event than ever!  We will be taking a huge range of unusual plants - including Zamia variegata (syn. picta), the worlds only naturally occurring variegated variety of cycad, lots of unusual bulbs including many from the old Maguire's hippeastrum collection, and some plants that you've probably never seen before. 


Green Expo 2024

Green Expo is on again at the Gold Coast on 30th & 31st July 2024.  Its a showcase of horticultural businesses that gives you the opportunity to talk to green life, irrigation, chemical, potting mix and other suppliers all in the one location.  It's a great networking event too.   We won't be exhibiting this year, but we will attend and hope to catch up with some of our customers while we are there.
