Hi Dagmar,

The most popular of the vines that are suitable for Brisbane is the dragon fruit vine. If you have a palm tree I would plant it around that and let it grow up it.

The easiest vine to grow in Brisbane would have to be the passionfruit vine. I would get a grafted one. Passionfruit spring up everywhere in Brisbane and if you were to plant one now it would take over a fence and start giving you fruit very soon. I included a picture of my grafted passionfruit which is only a couple of months old.

I am trying a kiwi fruit vine in Brisbane which has a male and female grafted onto the same rootstock. It hasn't seen a spring yet so it is quite dormant at the moment.

Here are a list of Brambles Vines and Climbers

As for blueberries I am growing a few in pots and as you can see from my picture I am getting a few ripening.

Since we don't have the chill hours in Brisbane like in Stanthorpe you will need to go with a tropical apple tree - However it looks like the pinkabelle apple tree is extremely popular at the moment because it is a dwarf variety and I would be interested to know if we get enough chill hours in Brisbane to get some apples.

Here is a list of the most popular fruit trees for QLD.

Correy, thank you for all your information.

Passion fruit I have already, grow beautifully; I have had some problems though that is 2 month ago as they haven’t had any flowers but Sulphate of Potash seems to work well as there are flowers everywhere now.

I bought the Pinkabelle apple, Davidson Plum Jerseyana, Grape – Black Muscat, Lime – Kaffir, Mandarin - Imperial; if I have any fruits, here in Brisbane, let you know.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi - did you get any fruit from your trees and vines? I'm just in the process of trying to get my husband to allow me to demolish the silly bit of lawn and put in vegetables - there are some nice spots for fruit trees, too.

Go CathG ! Lawns are a total waste of time, energy, space & fuel! If you have young kids or dogs there is an excuse, but otherwise lawns are just for frustrated farmers to harvest on weekends!

Hi Dagmar,

I have lots of vines (small back yard with fences, also some over archways). Passionfruit and grapes and dragonfruit are great. One of my favorites is wing yam / African yam with heart-shaped leaves that start pink/ purple and go bright green- very lush and gorgeous, and a large edible tuber. I bought one tuber and I have propagated it over lots of fence. Sweet potato scrambles up fences very well too.

Diana.
