Last Postage Dates to receive orders before Christmas 2021

By News, Promotions

Christmas is upon us and according to the Australia Post email below, it is now too late to post  parcels to receive before Christmas, and with Covid-19, Australia Post is already stressed with delayed deliveries in most destinations due to reduced capacity, limited flights and increased parcel volumes.  

We received an email on 28th October 2021 from Australia Post re Domestic Last Lodgement Dates for Delivery before Christmas. This means we need to receive your orders well before these dates to pack and lodge as we feel that these dates are a little ambitious as deliveries in the past few months have been less than anticipated. 

The email received follows.

******************

This is a quote from the Australia Post website.

COVID-19 is having a higher than usual impact 

” Extended lockdowns across our most populous states mean record numbers of people are shopping online. This has caused an unprecedented surge in parcel deliveries.

We’ve been affected by temporary facility closures and on any given day have around 500 of our people in precautionary self-isolation in accordance with state regulations.

Fewer passenger flights means we have less air freight capacity. Many domestic and international routes are currently suspended, and remaining routes have much lower frequencies. “

Belt Buckles, Bolo Ties and Hydroponics – Part 2

By News

Well we were certainly wrong about having more time for our hydroponics hobby as Banksia Products have been overwhelmed with orders since our Part 1 post about our hobby due to covid lockdowns in various states.  It seems that Australians have really become comfortable buying products online.

Here are some of the popular items we have been selling.

We Offer Free Postage within Australia

We have 2 greenhouses running on 240 volt power with timers set to start the pumps on and off to allow the roots of the plants to obtain oxygen.  At the moment in 1 greenhouse, we are growing Tommy Toe Tomatoes which have gone rampant and Lebanese Cucumbers (which have just finished) in NFT Systems.  We preserved the tomatoes and cucumbers with onions in a liquid of balsamic vinegar and water 50/50 for winter.  The other greenhouse grows Strawberries and a small amount of Rainbow Chard.

Zig-zag NFT system with Rainbow Chard – Strawberries in NFT system

Preserved Tomatoe, Lebanese Cucumber, Onion with Balsamic Vinegar and Water 50/50

Preserved Tomatoes with Water with a touch of Lemon Juice

The 3rd greenhouse is further away from 240 volt power, so we set up a solar system using 2 sets of 130 watt folding panels with 1 facing east and the other north as our boundary is lined with massive spotted gum trees which block out a reasonable amount of light.  In this greenhouse we are growing Blueberries and Blackberries in a NFT System and have now also set up drip system growing Capsicum.

There are about 300 to 400 blackberries just starting to ripen

For the drip system we sourced black heavy duty 9 litre buckets and drilled a circular cutout in the base with a flanged fitting then siliconed into the base which sits into a 100mm x 50mm NFT channel.  The buckets are filled with clay pebbles as the medium to support the plants.  We are now testing with growing Capsicum and the plants have already hit the ceiling with fruit appearing on all plants.

More on our Hydroponics later with more detail and images, however in the meantime check out our website Products at https://banksiaproducts.com.au/

We can be contacted at info@banksiaproducts.com.au.

Belt Buckles, Bolo Ties and Hydroponics – Part 1

By News

Banksia Products specialize in supplying quality Belt Buckles, Bolo Ties, Leather Belts and more, however since Covid-19 we basically only leave home for shopping and the Post Office which has allowed us extra time to concentrate on our hobby of growing vegetables hydroponically.  This has been an interesting journey as we have not seen these systems except on television or google. There has been some hit & miss as we have trialed various methods and products.

Our Banksia Products business obviously comes first as we post all orders within 24 hours and our local Post Office has their only pickup at 1:30pm daily to travel to the sorting facility.  Following are some of our type of product.

We offer Free Postage within Australia

We commenced hydroponics a couple of years ago and the following image was our first crop of Rainbow Chard grown in a NFT System

We erected a second hooped greenhouse 5M X 2M specifically for Strawberries, Toolangi, Chandler & Red Gauntlet.  We are approaching our third year and have grown over 8000 strawberries so far.

You can see this is an NFT System with the channels gently sloping to the front of the greenhouse, then a 50mm pvc tube carries the water & nutrient down to the yellow lidded storage reservoir at the far end of the greenhouse.  Most of the plumbing fittings are available at plumbing outlets or hardware stores.

We originally sourced strawberry bare rooted plants and replace all plants each year from runners…..more on that later.

The reason that we became interested in Hydroponics is that whatever we planted in soil was attacked by local animals such as wallabies, bandicoots, rabbits and birds as we live on the Far South Coast of NSW with lots of bush nearby.

Once we started we realised how much easier it was working at waist height and no weeding, however there are new problems with a few insects to deal with….pruning and cleaning solves many problems.

But best of all we have fresh veggies most of the year and don’t need to go to the supermarket that often especially with this terrible Covid-19 haunting everyone.

More on our Hydroponics later with more detail and images, however in the meantime check out our website Products at https://banksiaproducts.com.au/
