Myrtaceae in wa

    17 responses

Troy starts with ...
Hi everyone. With the quarantine the way it is. it is impossible to get myrtaceae into WA. I was hoping there would be some Perth people who may have the various eugenia, mycaria, syzygium, psidium species who would be willing to share any seeds/cuttings etc.

Yeah I am good thanks. I had a good time down south I only wished that I was able to go for a tour to see everything growing. I did manage to get a Aniseed myrtle and a native raspberry so I am pretty happy.
I realised that I had sent you a message a while back in regards to the Yellow joboticaba and when I was looking at your plant selection I realised it might be you.

They said it was Rubus hillii but I think that is now known as Rubus moluccanus (could be wrong)Just started flowering and the stems are quite different to my normal Raspberrys.

The rubus were re-sorted with name changes. Will try find the link. But I think your right. I may be coming into a couple of uncommon (for wa) bush food species shortly. I will let you know how I go. I may have extra.

That sounds great I am keen to get some more Bush foods to add to my collection.
What sort of soil prep do you do when it comes to Bush foods?

depends where theyre from. My rubus gunnianus from tasmania I have in azalea potting mix in pots. For my garden planted trees i generally add organic matter as I have sandy soil. Most of the bushfoods I have are rainforest based and need a moist soil. The biggest issue i have is iron deficiency due to my type of beach sand limestone soil mix. I have to dose the garden once or twice a year.

Thanks Troy I have quite heavy soils (lots of clay)I was just wondering if I could plant them into a vegemix from the local soil supplier or if that would be too much.
On another note do you have any bush bananas growing?
