Finger Lime

    5 responses

Ross McKenzie starts with ...
I'd love to grow an native finger lime in my back yard, but I'm in Melbourne. Will a novice gardener be able to make this work or is it just out of the question?

I think they are well worth trying if you are frost free. They grow and fruit beautifully in pots which you could try if you are in a cold area and then you can move it in to a protected position in the winter.

If you can provide a sheltered, warm micro-climate, it's worth a whirl. It's a **very** prickly plant, mine is just fruiting now after 5 years from seed and it's nearly 2 metres high by a metre around. Originally from open scrub, not rainforest; guess it's frost sensitive. What have you got to lose? :-) - Elaine

I live in Greensborough & have 2 finger limes (one green & one red)growing in the open subject to frost They grow well & don't seem to be affected by the frost at all! The are small plants so a tub would work well but otherwise just treat like any other temperate citrus (sunny, well drained)

Try Bunnings. They stock them here on The Gold Coast.
