Im really keen to try these plants out in my new back yard. its clay soil. Any tips would be much appreciated. Would I be able to get grafted smaller trees of these two plants? I have a relatively small back yard and 8 -12m is too big...

From my own experience, You may try jambu in a spot and cover up and under shelter in winter but amberalla is a true tropical.

I am in south east melbourne and red wax jambu survived very well in winter. all growth ceased but grows vigously again at the end of spring, around nov, just make sure they don't get too much winter rain. also i found them very sensitive to fertilizers, even fish emulsion, leaves dry up and drop even using recycled water from my pond which would be nutrient rich with nitrates. best to water with fresh water in hot season only.

Wax Jambu is very tough despite what it says in the literature. I have tried it uncovered in SA and they still thrive and fruit. Lots of mulch and remember to plant into a mould rather than digging into your clay soil.

I haven't been sucessful with amberella though.

Cheers.

I think he means to plant into a mound to ensure drainage
