  • We continue to maintain the simplest form of postage costs for the large variety of products we range, however in occasional circumstances of oversized orders and/or delivery location, the cost of freight can significantly impact delivery of an order therefore we reserve the right to refuse the order or contact the customer to discuss freight options and pricing.

Orders containing products from two different seasons (eg Rose or spring bulb pre-orders) that require separate deliveries will incur two delivery charges at the relevant rates (unless a free freight offer applies). A $5.00 Quarantine Inspection Surcharge applies in addition to the Delivery Charge for orders delivered to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to the increased complexity of quarantine requirements.

As quarantine inspections apply to each delivery, 2 quarantine charges will apply where orders contain products from different seasons.   *Please note that if you order large items (eg Patio, Standard or Weeping Roses, Fruit Trees) you must specify a street address for the delivery address. StarTrack Express generally do not deliver to PO Boxes or RSD addresses so your order will be held until a suitable address is obtained. In rural areas, StarTrack may deliver to physical addresses such as general stores that act as Australia Post agencies but we suggest you check with them first. Where ”Free Delivery” vouchers apply to an order, details of the voucher should be entered in the “Your message to us” field. Orders (except Pre-orders) are normally despatched within 7-14 working days from the time of ordering during busy periods. Delivery times may be extended during peak periods (typically following the release of the latest catalogue), extended public holidays, if extreme weather conditions are not suitable for live plant transport or as detailed in the product description.
Individual items may be back-ordered to avoid delaying the delivery of other items. Please allow additional delivery time for orders to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions.

 

Please note: Some orders may not be possible to parts of Australia due to quarantine and some items may carry unique delivery charges. Check full delivery policy.

Common Name: HEDGING PLANTS & SHRUBS GENERAL CARE
Planting Width: Varies depending on the species. (refer to measurements in the catalogue.)
Depth: Plant in soil the same level as in the pot.
Positioning: Full Sun to Part Shade
General Information: We sell many varieties of hedging plants, for example, Buxus (English Box, Japanese Box etc), Euonymus, Ligustrum, Pittosporum, Photinia and Westringia. Most hedging plants are suitable for a range of climates
and are very adaptable to different conditions.
Soil: Well Drained.
Watering: Regular deep watering in dry spring and summer conditions in required. Hedging plants like to be well watered.
Fertilising: Ensure that the soil is well dug and prepared with organic matter such as well-rotted animal manure, blood and bone or leaf mould. Mulch well to conserve water and keep roots cool.
Pruning: Shaping and pruning may need to be done several times during the growing period to keep plants in shape and to train them (if using as topiary.) Any hard pruning should be done in late winter. Some species are good in tubs, formal and informal hedges, privacy screens, and topiary.
Tips: Prune regularly to avoid hedge looking bushy and straggly. When shaping your hedge, it is important that the finished item has a slight wedge shape, with the top foliage slightly narrower than the lower foliage. This will enable all branches access to light, and will result in an overall healthier hedge with foliage all the way down to the ground level. Some species are known to perform better in different climates and situations. Eg: Photinia dislikes humidity, Japanese Box tolerates more heat than the other Buxus spp. Rely on information in catalogue for suitability to your particular situation. For an informal planting or specimen shrubs, trim lightly once or twice during the growing season to encourage compact
growth.

Common Name: NATIVE PLANTS GENERAL CARE
Plant Type: 50 mm Landscaping Pot
Planting: Plant in a hole at least twice the size of the pot, the same level as the pot.
General Information: Natives can provide attractive flowers and foliage and they also attract many varieties of birds into the garden. Many natives will survive on little water and will take warmer conditions.
Soil: Usually require well drained soil.
Watering: Only water when the soil appears dry (approx 1cm below the surface), then water until damp. Do not over water natives.
Fertilising: At planting add some Native Plant fertiliser to the hole then cover with some soil before placing the plant in (otherwise you will burn the roots). A diluted liquid seaweed product is beneficial to all native plants. It also helps to place some mulch, such as compost, dry grass or leaf mould around the shrub after planting to preserve moisture. However, do not smother the plant or place the mulch too close to the stem of the plant. Most natives benefit from a yearly application of a complete fertiliser specifically designed for Australian Natives during spring.
Pruning: Most natives require gentle pruning in order to keep tidy and promote vigour to the plant.
Dislikes: Being over watered.
Pests: Generally pest resistant in most locations.
✔ Ideal for attracting birds and wildlife to the garden.
Tips: If planting in a windy area the plant may require staking until established.

Legend


Establish which coloured region you live in and then consider the varieties listed as typically suited to that area. The Australian Climate Guide map is intended as a guide only as climatic conditions vary between specific locations. Factors such as local altitude, wind and the proximity of hills, mountains and bodies of water can cause variations from the generalised climate map. Note also that although a plant may be listed as suitable for a particular region, it may still require protection from extremes such as frost or strong winds. You should also consider its requirements for sun, shade and water.

Remember that you can often extend the range of plants that you can grow by creating micro-climates within your garden. Planting under trees, beside brick walls or in the shelter of a building, on high or low points in the garden can all have an effect. Even planting by a pond or surrounded by rocks can be used to advantage. Part of the joy of gardening can be experimenting and nothing is more pleasing that achieving success with a plant that is not usually seen in your area.

The map is based on Australian Bureau of Meteorology 30 year climatology data from 1961-1990. The zones are based on both temperature and humidity:

  • Tropical – hot humid summer .
  • Mild Tropical – warm humid summer
  • Semi-arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Temperate – warm summer, cool winter
  • Cool – mild-warm summer, cool winter
