Hi there. Wondering if anyone in the Perth area has tried growing cranberries. Have been googling them but can't find any info re people growing them in Perth area. Any tips/advice would be greatly appreciated-ie am I wasting my time trying? Thanks

Thanks for that Jimmy (& for the info on other questions).I've actually ordered some from Diggers but would like to hear how Perth growers have fared with them.

No but I would be interested in your progress. Do you go away very often? That is always my problem with plants that need lots of water such as my water chesnuts - they dry out.

We have retic so going away's not a problem. I get horse manure which has spoilt hay mixed through it & chuck a handful of composting worms in & a few months later have beautiful rich castings to grow my vegies in-they really hold water & coz it's got sand through it ,doesn't get 'wet.' I'm thinking maybe I could grow the cranberries in a bath like this but haven;t found anyone who has grown them yet for tips.

Hi Kath,

I ordered some cranberries from diggers last year... and they are still alive close to a year on... I put them in hanging baskets and have kept them damp... they have grown heaps... not sure how long til they fruit or what time of year they fruit... Can give u an update when there are changes... I think its a great idea about putting them in the bath - it will make it easy to keep damp and the worm castings will give the cranberries a rich nice soil.

Hi Folks

Just wondering how the cranberries are going? I have read a little but would like more info on them. I think the Tasmanian climate would suite crannies. Not sure where to get plants/vines or even if the state gov regulations would allow them into the state.

Hi all,

I have seen cranberry plants sold in Bunnings Melbourne. You may get some over there too. DR Glowinske book has a good chapter on growing this fruit if you are interested.

Would I be able to grow cranberries in a site that only gets sun for about half a year?

And how were the plants you bought at diggers? I heared so many bad things that I am reluctant to order,but they have some interesting plants.
