Size on limoncello - When you verify your info off a Facebook page then you really are headed for confusion. The FB post actually says 'supposedly', so there is already a degree of doubt. For some reason kim you keep peddling the idea that limoncello is 1) a named variety..1401 days 11hrs

Multiple trees in one hole multigrafted trees - Duo planting may be fine for the dry, low humidity of So Cal, but in areas of humidity it requires far more management and more spraying, beyond the spare time of many...1428 days 14hrs
Size on limoncello - The lemon variety used in Italy for limoncello is Santa Teresa Feminello. I doubt it is available in Australia, but Boris you should know?? I have tried a home made version made with Lisbon lemons and it was far superior to those available from Dan Murph..1437 days 4hrs
Dekopon in australia - I would say the fruit I have had this year are a little high in acid then previous years. Either picked early or not 'cured' long enough. Their peak season has been in August...1447 days 12hrs
Passionfruit30 - Panama Red and Pandora (which Daleys describes as a P.R selection and more tropical than black) are not ideal for Sydney. If you can provide background radiant heat in full sun then perhaps is ok. I found my PR took too long to sweeten up and many that dr..1453 days 14hrs
Low chill apricot variety availabilty - It is not the mature height that is the problem. You just can't prune it back to a contained size every year like peach/nectarines and expect fruit...1483 days 13hrs
Low chill apricot variety availabilty - The problem up here is fruit fly. I pulled my CC out. They are not on dwarfing rootstock and I found if you keep pruning to keep it to a decent size to net, you ended up with very little fruit as it bears on older wood...1487 days 4hrs

No subject41 - You've got it good down there Mark. I only started swearing when QUEENSLAND fruit fly infected my fruit. Believe me, citrus gall wasp is a minor inconvenience in comparison...1534 days 7hrs
Horseradislh - I disagree. The hyperlink "contact" is right above forum. As a production nursery rather than a nursery that just ships them in from secondary suppliers, they obviously found this was the most efficient use of time in handling queries. The idea some ha..1555 days 14hrs
Aldi citrus - They were selling the dwarf trees last month. Very limited choice. Only one variety for each type of citrus...1559 days 19hrs
Aldi citrus - Some really healthy trees again this week. Didn't see any blood oranges but I couldn't pass up a Cara Cara for $20. Superior to trees from Bunnings or Flower Power around here by a mile...1561 days 10hrs

Lemon seedless - Just came across a new variety of Eureka Lemon - seedless. (And no, I don't get any royalty from the sale of this plant.) As this was something new, so naturally I just had to have it. :) This one is sourced from South Africa and was released only i..Liked Answer 1402 days 13hrs
Passionfruit30 - I'm a bit inclined to run with Waterfall and Sternus on this. (I didn't think Waterfall's response left any room at all for doubt which he thought was better). My first passionfruits were panama red seedlings given to me by an old tree-grower who had ..Liked Answer 1453 days 14hrs
Blueberry plants1 - Hello, I bought 4 bluebeery plants froma well known 'big box' store. They grew new growth, got tonnes of flowers and delicious fruit, then 6 months later, are all but dead.

Please help identify this citrus - Leaves do look like sublime leaves but sublime is quite upright and compact. I think it could be West Indian lime. (Btw, I have euraka, Tahitian, and sublime only, I don't have Meyer or West Indian to compare) ..Liked Answer 1611 days 18hrs
