One of the coolest ways to make your gardens unique and your own is by planting some unusual fruits.
Why you should fill your garden with unusual fruits
While growing summer vegetables and other edibles like chillies in your garden is great, we think they don’t convey the same amount of interest or wonder as planting unusual fruits to your garden. Their beautiful look and flowers will make your garden look stunning. And, when they are ready for harvest, you’ll be able to enjoy the unique flavours of fruits which are hard to find in Australia.
What Fruits Should You Grow?
Dragon Fruit – We think that dragon fruits are one of the coolest fruits that you can grow in your home, and they taste great.
Durian – Don’t let the odour put you off, durians look awesome, and they have a mildly sweet flavour to them.

Introducing A Safer Way To Spray
Bioweed is an organic, non-selective weed killer that works fast on contact with the weed, to rapidly desiccate and burn even the most stubborn of plants. It can be used anywhere around the house including garden beds, veggie patches, paths, and driveways, and is safe to use around children, animals and even native wildlife.
The best part? Bioweed is the brainchild of well-established agricultural leaders greenPRO, and is backed by over twenty years of research and development. Owned and manufactured in Australia, the primary ingredient of Bioweed is sustainably sourced pine oil, and is even approved by NASAA, ACO and APVMA for use around organic farms and food production.
