Natal Plum - Carissa Macrocarpa - March 2016

This little shrub is still well like under 10cm one year on.  It just hasn't gone anywhere.  Except it did flower!.  The most lovelly smelling little white flower.

July 2017 took the shadecloth guard off it to see if that makes a difference.

It enjoyed having more sun but in 2018 I ended up relocating it to another part of the garden in the hope of giving it a better chance.

Very spiny little shrub with beautiful flowers and hope to see it grow up

TRIED BUT DIED

Macadamia - A16 (Grafted) 1/10

Fiona11's Edible Fruits
Update: 254 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Maybe it is more subtropical than a warm temperate zone.  Likely it wasn't protected enough

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions until we can actually be there full time to care for the more delicate

Planted: 2015

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 2

Question: How far apart should you plant them.  We have two.

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb

Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.
