macas are really quite tough

i grew seedling M tetraphylla dominant seedlings where we has -6c frosts and barely a tint of brown on the leaves

they grow Qld nut in perth so any var should be fine.

you will need to build up the soil. mulch and organic matter
maybe apply some trace element sprays too in time
windbreaks to halt drying westerlies

and theres no trigona bees in the west so youll needd to encourage the european honey bees

tetraphylla = nsw bushnut = sweet nut, everbearing

integrifolia = qld nut = commercial roasting nut

what you want the nut for? raw or roast

Thanks for the info. Would prefer raw nut. Have to build up soil for anything around here so I think i'll just give them a go!

Hey Rev are the dwarf macadamias good in Perth?
I don't have a big garden so I'm hopeful that a dwarf or two will supply the family with healthy raw nuts.
