Question & Answer

I have only just thought about a pollinator? Does the macadamia need another? From: HALLETT COVE SA

This Dwarf Macadamia Nut Tree is self pollinating meaning it will produce nuts by itself without another macadamia tree near by. #DwarfMacadamia1608

Are these trees suitable to grow in Victoria? From:

They are subtropical but many parts of vic are temperate - warm temperate so not ideal but the best ones for colder climates are the seedlings or the A4 varieties. Many people from VIC give them a go.

If this tree was grown in a large pot how soon would it be likely to bear fruit ? From:

It is likely to flower in it's first year. We recommend that you remove all the flowers and nuts from your young grafted tree for the first two years to allow your tree to establish into a strong healthy plant before letting the nuts mature as otherwise it will put all its energy into the nut. You want your young tree to put its energy into roots and shoots for the first two years.

Hi, I was wondering if you could tell me, can you grow a Macadamia Bush Nut in a pot, and if so, how big can they get? Kind regards Andrew Passlow From: RAYMOND TERRACE NSW

Macadamias can become very large trees. I would recommend a dwarf macadamia for a pot #DwarfMacadamia1608 You can however bonsai many things if you repot every 2 years with root and top pruning and regular feeding.

Paulngen's Edible Fruits
Update: 3025 days 13hrs

The tree has been planted about 2 years. It is still pretty small - approx 1m tall, does not seem to grow real fast. Have not been doing much in terms of maintenance except occasional fertilizing - manure, seaweed. Currently flowering for the first time despite small size - at least 15 stalks. Flowers appear to be partly falling before they open. Many little insects - looks like mites - attached to the flowers. Tried spraying with eco-oil, not sure if it will work.

Planted: 2007

Height 1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pest Control:

BJ's Edible Fruits

Planted in part shade position, well mluched, watered etc. Was doing okay, then I gave it Seasol and it seemingly got burned and quickly died. Will check before Seasolling again. But in its place is a native gardenia who absolutely loves the trouble spot.

Lissa's Edible Fruits
Update: 2447 days 0hrs

Recommended for a small backyard, but extremely slow growing. Overhung by other plants now so probably not getting as much sun as it needs.

Little worried about the dogs swallowing the kernels and causing an obstruction. At the rate that this one is growing the dogs will be long dead and fertilising underneath it before it gets any kernals.

Planted: 2010

Height 0.25 metres

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Winter

After Fruiting

Pollination: Self Pollination

Question:

Are they always this slow to grow?
