Customer Tips & Reviews Macadamia Bush Nut
GEROGERY, NSW, Australia
Got 15 of these planted in a row 3m apart as a future wind breakkilled a few fertilising with fertiliser with phoshrous in it... wont do it again. Native fertiliser only.
Macadamia Bush Nut
They should cope with Melbourne cold, but may want supplemental water. Mine have survived -3C without protection or treatment. They are slower growing in the cold, but cope with 'mild' frost!
KENSINGTON GARDENS, SA
very hardy seedlings, all 3 survived several harsh frosts with minimal damage and no leaves lost and even grew slightly through winter.
BARELLAN POINT, QLD, Australia
Grown from a seed from a friends tree that we all used to feast on. Is now 4 years old and getting some height. Hoping on some nuts this year!
EARLVILLE, QLD, Australia
I have four of these in my yard, two are powering on tall straight big leaves and the other two are much smaller and seem more compact and forked stemmed. The larger two are lush green and very forgiving attention wise, where as the smaller two are ...
EDEN, NSW, Australia
The nuts taste great but but this tree has very poor fruit set i have tried mulching fertilizing and watering. I have planted another nearby as a pollinator as i have heard some are self-incompatible.
CARLINGFORD, NSW, Australia
Produces good crop of nuts each year. Handsome tree with beautiful pink flower racemes.Top pruned the tree to half size so as to be able to reach nuts. This resulted in a much denser lower tree.
Marburg, QLD, Australia
It is a lovely size and shaped tree which provides us with a constant supply of nuts
Bardon, Qld, Australia
Apart from being a shade tree and beuautiful and old, this tree is a pain! It must be about 100yrs old, on the property already. It drops masses of nuts but many are rotten or poor in flavour and we have rats everywhere that enjoy them. It is too close...
Thora, NSW, Australia
The trees were here when we moved in! They look quite old, and they require no real attention...but they give such a fantastic nut. The black cockatoos have now discovered them but there are plenty for everyone including the rats!
GORDON, NSW, Australia
Got the original nuts from an old neighbours tree and have planted one or two in every place we have lived in since. Did very well at my last place, just waiting for this one to get going.
Como, NSW, Australia
Again, this tree was already on the block when we bought it. Unfortunately the cockies eat most of the nuts when they are still in their green stage and we get very few.
