Jaboticaba4 - at the nursery there were two lots - one in full sun and one under filtered sun, we did pick our plants from the full sun lot as they had been exposed to our very warm summer and excepting for the few burned tips on the leaves they were still quite health..2626 days 13hrs

Jaboticaba4 - my soil is the predictable sand and builders waste - so nothing to boast about. I'm in Dianella, the older part. The four jaboticabas i mentioned are already in the ground (hedging our driveway) - hopefully they'll be ok? do you think i should get t..2638 days 11hrs
Jaboticaba4 - Thanks Gus and Amanda for your tips - is it safe to give them blood & bone straight away? i'm too scared to give them anything more than a tiny bit of slow release fertilizer when we put them in the ground. The trees we picked up were retailing at ..2640 days 5hrs
Jaboticaba4 - Hi all, i have been reading reading and re-reading this thread for a while and have finally made a purchase of 4 jaboticabas from Blooming Nursery (in Jandabup). They stand at around 6 feet tall and quite slender looking. So excited! apparently they'..2647 days 1hrs

Persimmon - So sorry to hear your tree didn't make it - i'd always assumed that persimmon would be one of the easier trees to grow. A lady i used to work with wasn't much of a green thumb but her tree is absolutely stunning and is very prolific, so i'd assumed t..2661 days 11hrs
