On our blog we try and give our patrons information that will help them create a lush thriving garden. But there are other sources available where you can increase your understanding. We’re including a few good links in this blog and a way to get 15% off your next order, so keep reading!

1)      Tropical Breeze- Helen Curran’s garden in Sydney is a marvel to behold and an amazing place to get inspiration for your garden if you live in N.S.W or any zone challenged area. Her name may sound familiar as her articles often appear in Subtropical Gardening. And of course, Helen is one of our best customers J  Helen has a website at:  but also opens her doors as part of Open Garden. 'Tropical Breeze' is open with Australia's Open Garden Scheme in 24th-25th March, 2012.
