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!
