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.
