Pick some of the many unusual plants for sale here
Plants, both indoor and outdoor, can be such an important part of making your house a home. With the delightful greenery and often brightly coloured flowers and leaves, plants can turn a very dull area into an attractive and stimulating place.
I have turned such a place into a jungle of pot plants and for this reason and because I collect succulents, I am always on the lookout for more and unusual plants and pots for this area.
There will be many of your favourite plants, including as many rare plants as the organiser are able to source for you. The range will also have a brand new range of lovely pots in many sizes, shapes and colours to suit your rooms.
And as an added bonus, if you dress up, you will receive a $5 discount off your purchases - dress in your best beach clothes to get this discount! Wear such things as bathers, inflatables, towels, sunglasses, hats - the choice is only limited to your imagination! You must wear at least two items to qualify for this discount.

The plants mentioned as "rare" are as common as sliced bread. Some are dangerous, eg.the rubber tree, if planted outdoors. All of the plants mentioned are readily available at most suburban nurseries and Bunnings.
