Wollemi Pine

$250.00

The Wollemi Pine or Dinosaur Treeis one of the worlds oldest and rarest surviving trees, it was known only from 90 million year old fossils until its rediscoveryin 1994 by David Noble in the Wollemi National Park.It is a member of the Araucariaceae family which include the Kauri Pine, Hoop Pine and the Bunya Pine. The Wollemi is unique from the other pines in many ways, including its coppicing habit andthe beautiful ferny appearance of the foliage. The intriguing chocolate coloured bark takes on a bubbly texture as the tree matures. Even more strange are the wax coatings which appear in the winter to protect the new growing tips, these are called the polar caps and are yet another unique feature of this amazing native Australian tree.Trees are surprising hardy and can withstand temperatures down to -5 degrees Celsius as well as up to 45 degrees. This makes them a very versatile tree that can be grown in a variety of situations. They prefer slightly acidic soil with a PH of 5.5 to 6 which needsto bewell drained.Photos By J.Plaza

Custard Apple - Paxton Prolific

$79.00 ($79.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A modern selection of the popular Pinks Mammoth variety. It has a low seed count and excellent natural fruit set. This means that, unlike some other varieties, there is no need to laboriously hand pollinate each bloom to achieve a good harvest. Unpruned custard apples grow into very large trees. With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m. The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Dwarf Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)

$69.00 ($69.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Fuyu is a semi-dwarf variety, not a true dwarf, but well suited to growing in small backyards as, with pruning, it can be kept to 2m high. The fruit is large and flat, orange-red in colour with a sweet, mild flavour. Great eaten crunchy but just luscious when left to go soft. Besides producing delicious fruit, Persimmons are highly ornamental with their beautiful autumn foliage. Non astringent, so can be eaten when still hard. When young, protect from hot afternoon sun, and when dormant, from wet conditions.
