All our plans to build a new hot house tunnel this year have been postponed. Actually, it’s hard to do any nursery work in Queensland at all when the Queensland – New South Wales border is closed and you’re stuck in Sydney. (sigh)
The positive points are that my wife and I could cross the border southbound to visit my ailing mothing, we have no option but to spend more time with her and I have a chance to work on this website.
As mentioned in a previous blog post, the current catalogue system is effective in getting a high number of enquiries but we’ve decided to go for a more transparent system. Like our frangipani tree website, we’d like to show prices for plants and cost of delivery to as many locations as possible to allow customers to order and receive or not order at all.
Our NEW online shop is now fully functioning and able to accept orders. We have just finished uploading our 15 most favourite frangipani varieties. Most varieties show only a few available sizes however if you would like a particular size which is not listed, please contact us.
We have many frangipanis that are ready for sale and many that will be ready soon that are not listed on this website.
We still have not decided on how best to display current photos of our available frangipani plants yet but we’ve narrowed our options down to three. We have the option to add additional photos to each online shop section. We also have the option to email photos after receiving preliminary orders.
The third option, and our exciting new project, is to create a blog with a page for each frangipani variety. While this might be a good way to show our available frangipanis, it might turn out to be a place for us to just show off our all our frangipani plants.
