    7 responses

Hi

I've just planted an olive tree, and now I need to fill in the second (8x10m) plot.

What's a good plant that is well suited to WA's climate?

Thanks

What do you have already? Anything? There are so many that do well here.

And where in WA are you? It can make a difference.

Hi Julie, I'm in Perth.

I'm looking for a durable plant. A plant that doesn't bare huge fruit, just maybe some small ones.

Thanks

hi julie, we bought a peanut butter tree from Joe at Tass 1 (one) trees out swan view way. He has a lot of Daleys products out their. He has lots of good advice and he has heaps of very very strange fruiting trees. He also gave us some sugar cane to grow. Our peanut butter is doing really well. In 6 months it has grown to a 3rd of its size and it has small fruits, with heaps of pretty yellow flowers and the fruits turn red when ripe. If you like to have pretty leaves, this is a good tree to consider. It seems to tolerate a little ph, and our soil is ph to ph neutral, hope this helps. We also grow the Australian Native Finger lime from Daleys which Joe has and the kew apple, but that is more for a hedge and to keep unwanted visitors out.

karry, now I think of it, don't you need two olives for pollination? So maybe another olive!:)

I have had an olive tree for years which has done nothing, so maybe I should get another one.

hi amanda, well sorry to be so late with a reply regarding the finger lime. our finger lime is a street tree. it is absolutely amazing. it gets heaps of fruit which both the locals and birds get and I made some jam last year. very nice but did not last long. the fruit is very limely in flavour (strong) I found eating the entire fruit skin and all did not do any harm. In fact I used some of the peel in the christmas cake and it gave it a nice citrus flavour. I recommend using such trees as street trees as they are easy to manage, generate interest and are good for wildlife both the bees, wasps which keep the other bugs at bay and parrots nibble on a few as well I noticed. They really tolerate our horrid easterly's of which we are well known for. Even the really hot summers days with mid 40's did not kill the tree. We water it 3 times a week and feed it with KickALong Fruit Fertiliser 6 times a year and mulch it in spring, summer and autumn. hope that helps. When I have time I might upload a picture if I remember. :o)
