Araucaria bidwilli - Bunya Nut

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

Bunya Nut

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. | Rick Tanaka - Hepburn, VIC 05-Dec-2014

Bunya Nut

Warning I have a bunya nut tree in my yard, it is around 30mtrs tall. It drops pods every year from January to early March. These pods fall from the top of the tree and weigh from 5 - 10Kgs each. They drop without warning and are dangerous. | David Stephens - Beaudesert, Qld 28-Mar-2018
