Feijoa hedge

    3 responses

ben starts with ...
Hi guys, i am about to replace my lilly pilly hedge as its riddled with scale and i dont want to spray it all the time amd it drops too much stuff in my pool . Im thinking of putting in a feijoa and doing the same hedge. Problem is its a narrow space max 600mm and the back is on the fence. Doesnt bother the lilly pilly. How will i fare. Any advice on types best would be appreciated. I will plant several types for cross pollination

ben, feijoas are notorious for Medfly, so I would rethink it. Unless you don't get fruit fly where you are. I believe SA has had a successful campaign in eliminating it.

The Dept of Ag breeds sterile FF in Perth and sends them to SA, which is hard to understand as we have a huge problem here.

Apart from the FF, pretty problem free. I moved into a house that had one in the front, in Perth's poor, sandy soil. Never did a thing - no water, fertliser etc, and it still produced plenty of fruit. I was a novice gardener in those days.

I have a seedling fejoa that was given to me, in much better soil, and I ignore that too. It has never fruited, probably because it was a seedling, but it is an attractive shrub.
