    Start A Mowing Business On The Side Without Money

    Imagine if you could start a real business without a single dollar to your name. Can it be done? As far as traditional trades and service businesses are concerned, a mowing business is one of the closest options you’re ever going to get to that dream. I would argue it’s almost possible to start the business with a balance of $0 if it weren’t for things...

    Let’s face it: mowing lawns can be a chore. Especially if you don’t have a basic skill set that professional operators pick up along the way. It’s the sort of task that can drag out all weekend, but just know that an average Aussie suburban lawn takes 20 minutes for two pros to whippersnip, mow, blow and go. My favourite mower with a Briggs...

    Identifying Plants With Leaves, Flowers And Beyond

    0 comments
    When we begin the process of identifying an unknown plant, we are like detectives looking for clues in any places we can find them. The more clues we can find, the stronger our case is of matching the plant we see to its correct scientific name. Once we have this information, we have everything we need to do some background research on whether the...
  • The Banksia Genus

    The Banksia Genus

    0 comments
    Banksia is a genus of shrubs, trees and shrubby trees within the Protaceae family, along with warratahs, grevilleas and proteas. Like many other members, these plants provide great food for pollinators such as lorikeets, rosellas, bats, possums and invertebrates. Description A fluffy or fuzzy inflorescence called a spike or candle exists at the terminal tip on the branch. As the bisexual flowers (in pairs of 2)...

    The Protea Genus

    0 comments
    Named after Proteus, the Greek god who could change his form at will, the variance of forms within this genus is impressive. Protea is the type genus of its family, Protaceae. Other members of the family include waratahs, grevilleas and banksias. Like those genera, protea are often pollinated by birds, small marsupials and invertebrates. Unlike those genera which originate in Australia, the proteas are from southern...

    Proteaceae, The Protea Family

    0 comments
    Members of the dicotyledonous protea family largely originate from the southern hemisphere, especially Australia and southern Africa. Even though we tend to lump them all in as "natives" in Australia, some of them originate overseas, most notable proteas. The banksias, grevilleas, waratahs and macadamias are examples of Aussie natives, though there are many other truly native branches of the family that fly under the...

    Ficus, The Fig Genus

    0 comments
    The Ficus genus is home to around 850 species of plants in the dicotyledenous Moraceae family that come in a range of shapes and sizes, but can most easily be recognised by their round or pear-shaped fruit or infructescence (inflorescence before pollination). Plants in this genus can be sensitive to location change; perhaps if you’ve ever taken a rubber plant home from the nursery and it...

    Moraceae, The Fig/Mulberry Family

    0 comments
    On the surface, there doesn’t seem to be much that holds this family together as a group. It certainly wouldn’t seem obvious that figs and mulberries belong in the same family at first glance, at least not to me. Description Members can come in all shapes and sizes including vines and shrubs, but this family is generally associated with trees. The main thing these...

    Araceae, The Aroid Family

    0 comments
    Plants in the Araceae family, colloquially known as aroids, are usually pretty easy to identify, especially if you can see "one" of their “flowers” (actually an inflorescence). Monstera deliciosa is an example of an aroid with an edible fruit, however it’s important to note that the fruit must fully ripen which can take up to a year, because under-ripe monstera fruits can be toxic.  Monstera deliciosa immature composite...
