Spring 2011: Gift from my dad. Native but doesn't get coloured new growth. Healthy dark leaves, very pretty. Has a very "old" look about it (like a big tree in minature).


Height 1 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Pollination: No

Pest Control: Ants like to farm all sorts of different scale on it so I have to be diligent with scraping them off and spraying with white oil.

Brand new into my yard, and I'm super excited about them. I've consulted a few sources, and I've decided to have a go at confining them to a smaller size in large pots. One will go straight into the ground, and the other three into pots.

I'm going lean with potting mix, as I'm worried about killing more native fruit trees, so some compost and a bit of native pelletised fertiliser on top, mulched heavily. We'll see!

EDIT: Jan 2019 Doing really well in their pots, I'll have to repot them soon. One died- I had it positioned in such a way that it wasn't being watered. I cut it back in hopes it would reshoot, but three months on, it's still sitting there. That being said, the stalk is still quite firm and bendable, so I shall leave it be. Another was attacked by something that the ants are farming, and leaves a black, sooty sort of stuff behind. I moved it further into the sun and away from the others, and it seems to be growing well despite the problem. After four months of it not clearing up on its own (I like to give the bugs a chance to solve things for me) I've given it a spray with some oil, and we'll see what happens. It looks healthy enough anyway, and is still growing. The others are doing the best, and the one in the most shade has grown the most. I water every few days.
