What is a bare-rooted cutting?
Bare-rooted cuttings are sold as 20-25 cm semi-hardwood lengths, with both roots and developing foliage (additional length). In preparation for shipping, some of the foliage is removed (this minimises plant distress during transit) the soil is washed away and the roots wrapped in moist packing material.
What is an unrooted cutting?
Do you sell larger, more established plants?
Throughout the year, we have established plants available for purchase, in limited supply. For further information, click here.
What does it mean when a plant is labelled as (N)?
Any plant labelled "(N)", indicates the Brugmansia cultivar name is unknown. You may here this referred to as "noid" which simply means no identification. Whilst a cultivar id is nice to have it's generally not important to anyone choosing a plant based on its beatiful flowers.
The item/s I want to order are out of stock.
We are a small scale/boutique grower and online retailer. We are not a commercial business, mass producting plants. We operate this business as a hobby, around family and work life.
Where are you located?
As an online retail store, we do not operate a physical store open to the generall public. We are located in Brisbane (Kenmore 4069) Australia. We offer pickup in person (via contactless collection) to customers with orders of established plants only. The pick up address is provided to customers with a confirmed order, once a contactless collection date and time is scheduled. We do not publish the address, as this is our private family residence.
Brugmansia and Datura Toxicity
Like many common garden plants, all parts of Brugmansia and Datura are toxic if consumed/ingested/absorbed. All parts of these plants, including the sap, contain alkaloids like scopolamine, atropine and hyoscyamine which have an anticholinergic effect. Exercise self care when handling eg wear gardening gloves and consider wearing gardening safety goggles when handling these plants. Education, as with all things in life, is key...if you have children, supervise and educate them on the potential dangers, as you would when teaching other life skills such as road safety. If you have pets that chew, supervise them around these plants.
Are all Brugmansias perfumed?
Warm climate (B.aurea, B.versicolor, B.insignis and B.suaveolens) brugmansias are perfumed and their fragrance is most strong in the early mornings and evenings. Fragrance varies in intensity and where known will be stated on our website. Cooler climate (B.arborea, B.sanguinea & B.volcanicola) brugmansias are limited with regards perfume.

When do Brugmansia flower?
Brugmansia flower all year round, but not as much in cooler weather, when growth slows. Brugmansia start producing flowers, above where they form a Y section in their branches. Our rooted plants are cuttings taken from above th Y, which means even though young plants, the plant will generally begin producing flowers relatively quickly. It's not uncommon to see a cutting less than 30cm in height, produce a flower that is bigger than the plant itself (see image).
Unrooted cuttings looking sickly?
As a sole operator of a small business, all orders are managed and checked for quality by me personally, before being shipped. Where any product is unfit (for various reasons) to be sent, I will always contact the customer and ask if they'd like a alternate replacement, or refund. In short, you can be assured that no item in less than perfect condition is shipped by me... EVER! So with that said, lets move on...
Do you guarantee customers having success growing plants and/ seeds?
As with any plant/seed, many factors impact upon growing success, from your unique climatic conditions, to the level of care you provide and your growing skills and knowledge themselves, so the short (and obvious) answer is, no, we do not offer any guarantee and/ refund for any items you are unsuccessful in growing. Any purchase from us, is acceptance of these terms of sale. All orders are inspected for quality and optimal health prior to being packaged and shipped and leave us in excellent condition, suitably packaged.
