Hey Nicg, they're commonly found at the big hardware chain nurseries like M10, Bunnings , Masters. You can usually spot both grafted and seedling varieties, with Birdwood being the main propogator of the grafted ones. I should add, White Goose is the one I see most - not grown by Daleys.

Nicg you should probably know that most feijoas require cross-pollination to produce fruit. The only reliably self-fertile cultivar is 'Unique.'

Nazematze (sometimes spelt Nazemetz) is self fertile too and better flavoured than Unique which is rather mild.

Boris since you're on the boards, is there any reason I can't mulch potted blueberries with Pine Chips? I'm getting conflicting advice about this, I can't see how it would be a problem since they like acid soil.

Is grafting a feijoa scion manageable? Maybe I could graft Nazematze or some other onto my Unique. But I still want the dwarfing characteristics of Unique.
