Customer Tips & Reviews Lychee - Wai Chee
ENGADINE, NSW, Australia
Planted in October 2018.Very slow growing. Has a burst of new growth every 6-8 weeks, which then firms up before the next burst. Some leaves have been chopped or dropped off.Very pretty little tree.Fertilised with Scotts Organic Fruit and Citrus in...
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
This is a very small tree and is already flowering, not sure what to do if it fruits as its only 0.5m tall.Dropped all its flowers, not in the best position as its shaded in summer, may need to relocate this. Survived the Sydney winter no problem and p...
Tingalpa, QLD, Australia
Extremely slow growing and very sensitive to fertiliser and water, I made the mistake of fertilising it and it never fully recovered. Do not use fertiliser on the plant for the first few years as they have there own store of nutrients (I learnt that ...

Ocean View, QLD, Australia
