Brenton's Edible Fruits

September 2014: Potted in July 2014.  Flowered incredibly strongly after a slow start to spring.  Plenty of new growth and fruit is developing.  Quite an expensive plant but one that is of great quality.  It is perfect for pots, great colours on the leaves and the perfect size for any small backyard.

November 2014: This has been planted in the ground in my front yard where it gets plenty of sun.  It is well mulched and fertilised with Dynamic Lifter.  There hasn't been a huge amount of growth on this and the energy my peach saved by not flowering as heavily has translated into a much healthier looking plant.  The Nectarine is still progressing along well.

May 2015: The leaves on this plant have been removed based on what I've read about the plant (and this assisting the plant have stronger growth in spring).  It is a strong grower and has dealt with being moved around the yard until its final location.  As the nights grow cooler I'm hoping for plenty of winter chill hours.  Occaisionally fertilised but is well mulched.
