Hjw1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1637 days 2hrs
Fruit is amazing just two years after planting! We've harvested nearly 1kg this year. At it's peak (late Nov / early Dec) was harvesting 1 punnet every 3-4 days. Fruit is good size and delicious.
We moved it to a new location this year. Full sun, but we covered the western side of the frame for the blueberries with green shade cloth. We live on the Liverpool Plains - north western NSW, where rain is infrequent and summer days average 36 degrees. Once the temps go above 36 degrees we water twice per day. Water with rainwater.
Roots have now gone through the pot and into the ground.

Just recently did similar with shading blueberries from western side cause of hot days above 35. I've left eastern and northern side open but I may have to reconsider that :) Cheers* You need your own My Edibles Page to contribute Quick & Easy
