Jaboticaba hedge - I too wanted an edible hedge, and planted a jaboticaba hedge based on reading that it was possible, but having never seen one. The photos show when I first planted the hedge (obviously bought from Daley') and now which is about 12 months on. I planted..3795 days 13hrs

I'm growing this as a hedge and am very happy.

It tends to grow upwards and I have been pulling some of the branches to the side to get it to fill out.  Very happy with the result

I prune every three or so months to keep the hedge look. After 2 years it hit approx 2 metres, my desired height.  We did a renovation at about the time, lost one and damaged another.  The damaged plant was stressed and has now started to fruit.  The others have not yet.

Very happy with the hedge, very hapy with the fruit.

My three year old loves to go and check if there are fruit and eat any that are ready

Hi Simon in sunny Brisbane.Good photos. We had one in northern NSW.Slow to start but at 5-7yrs flowered & fruited profusely.We watewred to establish when young then it really looked after itself. A very dense tree, branching more as it got older 1.5m W x 3+m H. I hope your hedge goes well, you'll probably get loads of fruit.

Grape - Golden Muscat (Grafted)

This is a seeded grape.

I had quite good growth in the first year and two small bunches of grapes.  I did not treat it well initially and replanted it twice.  I was suprised that it survived.

I am happy that it survived and really happy with the taste.

I hate that the posums appear to get to it before me thought!

Wampee - Yeem Pay (Grafted) 9/10

Initially I grew this on a trellis espalier style. Not suitable, I didn't get it to grow branches where I wanted them. 

 I have since moved the plant 2 more times and it has survived.  My chickens love to dig up the roots yet this plant has not died.  This is very hardy.

Flowering and setting fruit in its third year.

Planted in ground. Plant is a little more straggly than I expected.  The flowers have just started. Not really noticable, but it was planted for environmental reasons, to assist with getting birdwing butterflies back into the area.

I have not seen any yet.
