Please note: I do not post my plants / products. All prices shown on this website do not include delivery. I offer a delivery service within the Perth metro area for $15 per order. You are welcome to collect your plants / products from me in Kalamunda at no charge.

You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


Cinnamon Myrtle – Backhousia myrtifolia. 3.7L coir pot. 

The lush leaves give off a cinnamon fragrance when crushed or rubbed and they can be used in place of cinnamon spice in cooking. The young leaves are more fragrant. They can be used fresh or dried and they make a beautiful tea.

In summer, small cream – white flowers appear and the birds and beneficial insects love them. 

This densely foliaged plant enjoys a full sun to part shade position and can handle various soil types with good drainage.

It should grow around 4m high by 3m wide and it is great for using as a screening plant or a windbreak.
