Mountain Pepper - Bushfood (Ceramic Pot Included 160mm)

$65.00

The Tasmanian Mountain Pepper is not only extremely handy but she is also very attractive, blooming in spring with creamy white flowers! A compact outdoor shrub, she will look perfect potted on the patio or growing in the garden. Her dark green leaves can be used to add a spicy, hot flavour to casseroles, curries, pasta and soup or if you’re a kitchen whiz, your imagination is the limit!  Her leaves can be used either fresh or dried and ground to sprinkle on food or as a native alternative to pepper. Amazing!

Caring For Your Plant:

           

Mountain Peppers love a partly shaded to sunny outdoor position (avoiding hot afternoon sun) and will tolerate frost.  She has moderate watering needs and likes to be kept moist during the heat of summer. Prune after flowering to keep in shape and encourage new growth.

Growing capacity 2-3m height x 2-3m width.

She can be repotted into a larger pot plant when needed or can be planted in the garden at anytime as well! Ensure no water is sitting in the bottom of her ceramic pot as this will rot the roots.

How She Will Arrive:

Our Mountain Pepper’s are planted in gardener’s pots and are delivered in a beautiful 160mm ceramic pot plant in your choice of colour!

They also include care instructions and a beautifully handwritten gift card seeded with Swan River Daisies! Even more natives to enjoy!

Why Buy Natives?

There are SO many reasons to surround yourself with native plants! Native plants are low maintenance, requiring less of our precious water than exotic species which also saves money! They provide essential food for our native wildlife – attracting native birds, butterflies, lizards, bees, frogs and insects to name a few! By buying native plants you are helping to preserve our native environment and plant species. Yay you!
