Garcinia intermedia - Hi brad16, you are absolutely spot on with your comments. The best logical explanation for what I'm also seeing here in Melbourne. I'm planning to build a good greenhouse soon and hopefully it will provide with sufficient humidity and steady temp for t..230 days 11hrs

Summer pruning avocado - Hi Chris, I don't think there is any issue with summer pruning Avos as this is the time of the year they're actively growing (in temperate climate where I live). In fact they respond pretty well to pruning in my experience. I have a Haas, Bacon and a ..264 days 16hrs
Garcinia intermedia - Hi Markmelb, Thanks heaps for the reply. Pleased to see people like you trying to grow garcinia in Melb and that encourages me to try them here in temperate climate. I ordered Luc's Garcinia from Delay's about a month ago and already have 2 Intermedias a..264 days 23hrs

Garcinia intermedia - Hey Bangkokii, I'm inclined to think that the problem with the Melbourne summer heat may have just as much to do with the dryness of the air, as much as it is the temperature of it.

Garcinia intermedia - Hi 410, The original leaves were grown in a longer growing climate before it was located at your place. In my experience garcinia requires a constant growing season.

Garcinia intermedia - Hey all, I just found an Achacha.

Help with plant spacing and position - I see about the wind; I was just thinking that it would give you extra depth. :) I can't dig so I just prop the trees up and chuck soil on top. Rather primitive compared with your thoughtful preparation...Liked Answer 235 days 16hrs
Mangosteen5 - I have two small Mangosteens (about 600 mm tall) still in their tall pots (about 250 mm tall) on the Central Coast of NSW. I keep them outside under shade. Originally I thought it would be best to ensure they had full sun as the winter approached, so t..Liked Answer 247 days 13hrs

Avocado leaves going brown - BJ, the leaves fade colour and then fall off the tree once a year (when there's new growth coming), it pretty much all happens within a space of a couple of months so might worry you if you didn't know that was going to happen :)..Liked Answer 950 days 17hrs

Drumstick Tree ( Moringa ) (Seedling) 10/10

410's Edible Fruits
Update: 105 days 13hrs

Comments: -


Growing very fast this summer 2019 (photo was taken one year ago). Already about 1m tall. All leaves drop in the winter and dies back a little bit and then bounces back stronger when the weather warms up in the late spring. First flowered late autumn last year and didnt hold on when the weather cooled down.

2019 winter - Tree has grown taller than my colourbond fence which is on top of a 600cm retain wall. height is now close to 2m. Extremely fast growing and not bothered at all by the 40degC melbourne summer days. Flowering started earlier than last year (late summer) but no sign of pods forming.

Fruiting Months June, July, August

Planted: 2017
