Berries Vines and Climbers

Fruit Trees > Berries Vines and Climbers


The big three in the vine world are the Passionfruit, Kiwifruit and Grape. All three require their fare share of care but they will reward you with an abundance of fruit in a relatively short time. All need a strong trellis, the Kiwifruit and Grape are more suited to pergola planting due to their deciduous nature. If you need all-round cover then go with the passionfruit. The Dragon Fruit - Pitaya is stunningly beautiful with a large flowers and melon like fruit. Berries, the most magnificent of the dessert fruits also need care because with neglect they will become the rampant monsters of your garden. They need a sunny airy location with some type of edging to stop them invading other parts of the garden. A trellis is a good idea as the long canes can be tied up allowing better circulation that will lesson the adverse effects of excess humidity. If growing in the subtropics it is highly recommended that some shade is provided.

Bush foods Australia

Fruit Trees > Bush foods Australia


No garden could require less maintenance but give more rewards than an Australian native bushfood garden. Often referred to in Australian slang as Bush Tucker, the plants are well adapted to our harsh climate and their hardiness sees little use for fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides. Most bush foods are small due to the small amount of water they contain however they are packed with plenty of goodness and flavour. The bushfood industry is a growing one, however as a very new industry it has had to tackle species research, toxicology, cultivation practices, harvesting methods, market potential, consumer education and distribution networks all at once so many commercial growers are required to find their own markets. For the home grower there is nothing quite as Australian as growing our native bush foods and using them to create a truly unique and fascinating Australian cuisine.

Citrus Trees

Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees


Citrus fruit trees are the most popular fruit bearing group of plants grown in Australia. The glossy green foliage, white scented flowers and colourful fruit make these trees just as suited to ornamental plantings and container growing as to the home orchard. The fruit is produced in abundance, is nutritious, versatile and can be left on the tree for long periods. Citrus grows best in an open and sunny position. Frost-free areas are preferable however most citrus will tolerate light frost once they are established. Correct planting and ongoing care as outlined in the catalogue is vital for long-term success. Selecting the varieties to grow is up to you, however we strongly recommend that your choice allows for the maximum spread of maturity times throughout the season.

Feed the trees every 6 months with a slow release fertiliser, provide plenty of sunlight, and keep the tree moist. The secret with keeping trees healthy and productive in containers is to re-pot and prune (roots and tops) at least every two years.

Nut Trees

Fruit Trees > Nut Trees


Growing nut trees in Australia is not new with pecans and macadamias being one of our most successful commercial crops. The Macadamia is a native of southern Queensland and northern New South Wales and is the only Australian native tree to be developed into a commercial crop. The Pecan is a native of America and is among the best of the multi-purpose trees providing a valuable nut crop and an excellent long-term investment. Chestnuts, Hazlenuts, Walnuts and Almonds are amongst the temperate group of nuts. We do not recommend them as commercially viable within the subtropics however they will bear adequate crops for the home orchardist.

Perennial vegetables

Fruit Trees > Perennial vegetables


Perennial Vegetables make unusual, highly appealing ornamental plants that provide edible leaves or tubers for most of the year. Apart from being a plentiful food source they also serve other functions around the house such as screening (Arrowroot), ground covers (sweet potato), and edge plants used as a barrier against weeds (comfrey).

Subtropical Fruit Trees

Subtropical fruit trees such as avocado, custard apples and babacos reach their greatest potential in coastal regions from Sydney to Mackay. Many will grow well even as far south as Melbourne in sheltered micro climates, maybe not commercially but certainly worth trying in the backyard orchard.

Temperate Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Temperate Fruit Trees


This category is largely made up of deciduous fruit trees. When selecting temperate fruit trees it's important to consider their pollination and chill hour requirements. As the coastal region or northern NSW and south east Qld has such a mild climate, care must be taken to choose deciduous fruit trees appropriate for our mild winters. The selected varieties we sell have the lowest chill factor of their groups. If you are looking for stonefruit we have selected lowchill varieties that are listed in the subtropical fruit tree category.

Tropical Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees


Tropical fruit Trees or the 'exotics' grow naturally in lush forests where they are protected from cold winds and they thrive in warm and humid conditions. Growing conditions in home gardens vary substantially and will often determine the type of trees you can grow. Winter cold (chill factor), summer warmth (humidity and temperature) and the length of the frost-free season need to be considered. Many tropical fruits can be grown outside their ideal climate. We are constantly amazed by the fabulous home-orcharding success stories we hear from around Australia.
