You select the part of Australia you live in and the type of plant you’re looking for (eg. grasses, large trees, climbers), and the program finds plants for you.
You can also add extra search criteria such as soil type, foliage type, growing environment and flowering season.
We offer two programs for our customers: the Showerhead Exchange Program and the Trigger Nozzle Exchange Program.
You can receive:
Having a trigger nozzle on your hose helps you save water because you can instantly turn off the water between plants.
If you use mains water to water your garden or wash your car, you need to have a trigger nozzle on your hose. This is one of the Permanent Water Saving Rules. If you use tank water or collect laundry or bathwater to water your garden, you can use any hose connection you like.
Under Permanent Water Saving Rules, you can wash your car or water your garden on any day at any time using a hose with a trigger nozzle. There are time limits on when you can use watering systems though, see the Water Restrictions page for details.
How to exchange:
