A $10 scop that went, (and so far has stayed), 4 ribbed after planting it out.

 

Other than that, a few cool looking bridgesii's, especially one that seems to throw out a single spine per areole. Also some Myrt Geo that I used for graft stock.

Some weirdo 'assorted colours' plant

 

it was a random flowering plant that looked more like a caterpillar, looked like  a crested flower.


To know is to be cursed with knowing.

scop, pach, myrto, bridgi, mammis...but they have stopped stocking in the last year or so :/

 

Fold-out 'papasan' style camping/outdoor/sunroom chairs...love them, best things I have ever bought.

 

...

 

Worst thing. A heated propogation chamber without a thermostat. First time I turned it on, it must have heated to 40-50c and cooked a bunch of cuttings.

I bought this last week, but of course all the Bunnings label told me was that it was a cactus. A little ID help anyone.

What's the deal with bunnings anyway? wasn't the whole point that they were meant to be cheap.. well they are cheap, as in absolute cheap bloody crap that is extremely over priced!

I guess now that they have killed off all the small local hardware businesses they can charge anything they damn well please for their flimsey, useless landfill fodder & sickly, diseased & neglected plants.

Fuck bunnings.

I generally concur with your sentiments...but.

 

I seen this happen in my own location. Bunnings moved in down the road from a locally owned big-box harware store and they've been dying a slow death. If I was in their situation, I might try and stock some more unique boutique items, locally produced products, heirloom varieties, high quality brands and equipment...there are a million things they could do to differentiate and create a niche for themselves...

 

But all they do is stock the exact same products as Bunnings then bitch and moan about how they can't compete...maybe I'm being harsh, but I get the feeling the managers/owners are as uninspired as the zombiefied assistants who lurch up and down the aisles. I don't feel the least bit sorry for them.

I've found many varieties of chilli at Bunnings. Saved me from growing them from seed this year.

Yeah rabelais, I definitely agree, but i think the problem may also be that the majority of the population & therefore the source of income of these shops are largely braindead & only a tiny fraction of the community would even want those heirloom varieties & high quality products.. people just love their cheap flimsy shit & are probably happy when it falls to pieces cause it means they get to go & waste money at bunnings again so for a moment they can be under the illusion they are filling that gaping hole in their soul that has been left by their utterly meaningless & profoundly depressing consumerist existence.
