Hi,

Can anyone suggest where I can get Indian Gooseberry plant (Amla; Phyllanthus Embilca). Will it survive with the Melbourne weather.

Seeds are available from tradewinds (US) but you'd need to do a search on the AQIS website to see if you can bring them into the country.

Max00, I asked about Amla ages ago - I'm surprised it has come up again in a different thread.

Funky Fungus (Australia) said they would have seed from June 1st, but their website is having problems at the moment, so I am just waiting. Probably wouldn't sow it till spring anyway.

Maybe try them next week, or you can contact them from the site.

Hi Julie - I was wondering if they will let Amla seeds into WA? I was doing some reading and see they are from Euphorbia family....many of these are on the black-list...
(yea...I also have euphorbia weeds on the block...it's never ending honestly! I guess that's what happens when ex-farm land is left to it's own devices? totally trashes the ecosystem...sigh...!)

Hadn't thought of that - I will have to check. Euphorbia is quite a big family, and I know the weeds you mean.

The fungus guy knows what I want (I emailed him), but I didn't say I was in WA. I'll ask.

JK - I have feeling Amla is on the no-go list for WA...? If u do a 'dummy order' thru Daleys u will find out. I haven't heard of anyone with a plant either..?
Check the My-Edibles section - asking for the specific plant - u may see a WA person with it...

amanda, Linton sent me some seeds - he may still have some.

I lost the first lot to slugs, and the second lot died after transplanting. I will try again, sowing into small pots so they don't need to be moved till they are better established.

Amlas - Indian Gooseberry

Sorry to hear you lost your plants Julie. The ones I grew from the original seeds are still doing well and very healthy as you can see in the pictures.

I don't have any seeds left but they are readily available on the internet.

I still have a few left Linton. I never sow all my seeds at once, in case of accidents. Yours are looking pretty good!

Better luck next time - for me I mean.

Easy to grow here. One of the few things horses won't eat foliage off, so has done well,in the horse paddock.

Can anyone advise on the fruit quality of seed grown trees?

The info on the internet speaks of cultivars and does not provide much around this.

Also from what I can find, multiple plantings are advised for pollination.

e.g.

http://tropical.theferns.info/viewtropical.php?id=Phyllanthus+emblica

https://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/emblic.html

Due to limited space I was thinking I might try multiple hole planting a few.
