New b.sirius is at BLISS

"Get lost in the garden of b.sirius this Spring/Summer. Dive into a field of posies or be whisked away by a whirlwind of blissfull berries and opulent oranges. This range is bursting with fresh colours that go hand in hand with the glistening sunny skies and budding blooms."
The new range from B.sirius is now in stock at Bliss and by gosh, they've outdone themselves again, it's pretty as ever! Annabelle and the team have made some gorgeous new fabrics this season and some very clever bag designs as well. Clever enough in fact, to earn them a Melbourne Design Award last month.

The extra special part for you, is that we're the first in the ACT to get the new season stock. So if you're keen to get your hands on it then come and see us quick before they all get snapped up.

Perfect for Pots - Sago Palm

The Sago Palm (Cycas Revoluta) is native to Japan and is not a palm at all but a cycad. It's a very striking plant with it's symmetrical circle growth and lush dark green leaves and certainly looks great in a pot. It doesn't need a lot of water or fertilizer just a large pot or deep soil with good mulching.

Maintenance is quick and easy as it only needs the lower yellowing leaves removed. They are largely pest resistant if kept outside but if kept inside they are prone to mealy bugs and spider mite.

The good news for us Canberrans though is that they are tolerant of frosts up to -10c (there's a Cycad planted at Bliss which gets the full frost, come and see it!).
