Finger lime5 - I presume you have a grafted tree on a dwarfing rootstock. As with many trees it is hard to predict if your plant will commense growth instantly or it may want to sit for many months to first establish its roots. Being dwarfed it will probably not be too..3 days 7hrs

Dying tamarillo trees - Some plants that are vigorous in growth and seem quite hardy can quickly be killed by an act of kindness. I suspect your rich compost potting mix is too much for your plant. I would try normal potting mix and grow in a moderately cool position. I have see..24 days 6hrs

Carambola tree challenged - During hot dry weather you can water every day with little worry. Otherwise you will know if you need water by scratching beneath the surface each day and water if it is a bit dry and not if it is wet. If your soil seems to be wet quite often then you hav..42 days 7hrs

Sumac spice - haskap seedlings grown together in Auckland, New Zealand, did not set fruit. I guess they needed quite a lot of frost which was not available. Blueberries grow well and bear well in much warmer climates. The only similarity is the fruit Im afraid. ..49 days 3hrs

Grevillea robusta - I have noted a number of the trees declining after about that time. Usually about 30 years.Maybe they prefer better than average drainage in the soil. Maybe it is about the average lifespan. What say ye aussies ..80 days 3hrs
