Planted in a large pot on the verandah. Drought tolerant but prefers regular deep watering. I give it crushed rock minerals and citrus fertilizer and I can't stop it growing. Regular pruning in width and height have not stopped the tree at all. | Grant Bates - Craigieburn, VIC 30-Jun-2014
This is the ultimate aussie tough tree. Rabbit and roo proof. Planted it in our wood heap. Watered it for first 2 weeks and that was all. So far it has withstood 47 degree heat and -6 cold and still going strong. I can't say enough good things about them | Deb Bond - Roma, QLD 10-Nov-2014
Thought this piece from the permaculture founder sums it all up. http://holmgren.com.au/reverence-bunya-bunya/ | Rick Tanaka - Hepburn, VIC 05-Dec-2014
