Bought 2 varieties of lychees, hakip and salathiel. Both were ok over the winter. Salathiel died in spring probably due to over fertilising.

Sum14- planted in full sun(north and west), 1m away from the bacon avocado. Even though bacon leaves burnt to ashes (literally) , mandarin leaves did not burn in 40c+ temp. While avocado tree recovered quickly with new leaves and branches, the mandarin leaves all curled up a bit, no growth for the whole summer and autumn.
Daisy5 says... [2343 days 6hrs ago]
Aug14-the mandarin was dug up and repotted, awaiting to plant on a less sunny spot. Or is it a root bound problem as I didnot check its roots when I planted it in ground.

Hi daisy, do you sell or swap cuttings of your trees? I am looking to buy some avo scions off you if that’s ok? I am having so much trouble finding some where to buy them in Australia. I have feurte and bacon from nursery but I’m wanting as many varieties as I can grow lol. I’m addicted to gardening I think and I love avocados and I am doing this as an experiment too. I live in Ballarat so I know I’m pushing my luck here with growing them. I am going to protect them in winter if they are not good in colder weather. Also want to see how I go about growing them in pots and then I can put them in greenhouse in winter too. I have severe health issues so I can’t really afford to buy heaps of trees and I don’t want them to just die on me. So I thought I will multi graft I don’t have room for heaps of trees) to save room too. Anyway I saw you have some varieties I don’t have. I can’t find any lamb hass, wurtz etc anywhere else atm too so I can’t even buy the trees atm. I’m happy to send you some cuttings too if there is anything you would like? I am going to make a list on my edibles soon so you can see what I have. Anyway hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you.
becrule35 says... [117 days 4hrs ago]
Also I am going to try and buy some varieties that are very cold hardy and rare in Australia from USA if I can. So I can definitely return the favour once I get them. Also I noticed you have pomegranates. I am growing mine from seed and hoping I get some nice fruit but if I don’t I may purchase some cuttings off you too? I know they are super easy to grow from cuttings apparently. I have pink lady and Granny Smith apples so far(young trees), olive tree the variety you use for olive leaf extract which is amazing for your health, it can grow in tubs too it’s super easy to grow from cuttings, I have eureka lemon, several herbs, blue berries, raspberry, bay leaf tree, fig etc so I’m happy to send you some and do some swaps in the near future? I also love to push the boundaries with our zones lol I wish I wasn’t sick cos if I was well again I would love to move to a warmer climate so I can grow all types of avocados. But it’s ok I will stick with growing the ones that are not frost tolerant in pots for now 😊
