Hi mate - if you have spare scion woods, can you pls let me know so I can try grafting to my white sapote seedling tree? I am happy to pay for them and perhaps go for a drive down to the South Coast one weekend to collect

Growing in a small greenhouse in full shade. After applying half a handful of Scott's Pure Organic Fruit & Citrus fertiliser it's been growing great.

Hi Chad1, your tree looks fantastic. May I know where you got your tree from and how old it is?
Chad1 says... [1242 days 1hrs ago]
I ordered it form Daley's and received it in Feb 2017. I'm not sure how old it was then. Probably should update the photo

Been in full sun now for a year.

Chad1 says... [1178 days 3hrs ago]
Sorry about the slow update.
Chad1 says... [1178 days 3hrs ago]
About 68cm tall. I wish I'd measured it when I received it.
Chad1 says... [1178 days 3hrs ago]
Probably should have shaded it in Summer
