Pistachio nut seeds - Heads up for anyone who cares... Yalca is now advertising Sirora pistachios (trees). Grafted or not is not explicitly stated. I'd assume grafted, but you would be best to confirm this with Yalca if you're keen...39 days 15hrs
Currant grape vine - I think some people do call dried sultanas, currants. In which case Markmelb has given the answer. Just out of curiosity, I dried a bunch of sultana grapes from the last crop (semi-intentionally). I know nothing about drying fruits, but am interested i..104 days 15hrs
Currant grape vine - Maybe black, or red, currant? (Ribes nigrum / rubrum) Maybe confusing a dried currant as a type of sultana (dried grape). If that's what you're after, Daleys have them in production. https://www.daleysfruit.com.au/search.php?PHPSESSID=hn61jrbftjgt8c..104 days 16hrs
Compost bugs - Oh Beestie, you signed up especially for that? I think those who pout about morality are the ones who need to check it...106 days 12hrs
Cotton candy - Hi Markmelb, Good to hear reports like this. I think the 'seedless' part may disappoint. I compare it to bones in fish. I like fish, but I know many people who don't, and it's primarily because they don't like fiddling with the bones. I've never come a..115 days 9hrs
Tree query - Hi Alana, The scale I have in mind is large (min 15 m deep), but obviously not everyone has lots of space for a windbreak. It consists of a number of different trees (the main ones could be): Bunya (Araucaria bidwilli) Brown/Plum Pine (Podocarpus e..127 days 0hrs
Cedar tip moth1 - Hi Pat, Keeping 40 odd plants together for easy maintenance is a logical thing to do, you just didn't anticipate the possibility of pests finding them and having open access. With hindsight, it still could be a good idea to keep them all together if..130 days 8hrs
Jackfruit sydney - Hi Mike, That info about crossing jacks is pretty interesting. I just haven't been into them. I've always considered them an absurd fruit, but just recently when I saw Daley's 'Little Jewel' pop up for sale, I thought I'd give them a try, so just bough..130 days 9hrs
Hass avocado2 - Hi Tedy, Looks like a new planting from the nursery. Being exposed like that, out in the open, usually dries out the tender leaves that grow in a well sheltered nursery environment. This is why it is recommended to 'harden' off new purchases, as goi..130 days 15hrs
Cedar tip moth1 - I'm guessing your asking about a simpler way than netting the apical shoot. That's the only real solution I've ever come across, and you'd be aware of the impracticalities of that since an investment of Red Cedar is an investment for future generations..137 days 12hrs
Man - Ornamental or productive variety? :)..137 days 14hrs
Name of shrub - Yes the berries look like currants, but what is meant by 'Native Currant'? Currants (Ribes genus) leaves are quite different. They are lobed, while the ones in the picture are lancelot. I think that is why Potty Bob said 'Native' currant. But what does..141 days 12hrs
Name of shrub - Did you ever have an urge to grind your own coffee? I'm not certain about this, but it looks kind of like a coffee bush. I don't like coffee (weird I know) so you'll have to confirm that. I'm sure there are plenty of others out there with them...143 days 15hrs
Pomegranate12 - First thing to consider with splitting fruit is water uptake. Looking at your photo, the arils are nice and plump, so it would be a very good assumption that maybe good intentions is giving the tree too much love with the watering can. We all would lik..143 days 15hrs
Guava mexican cream - Hi Jonesplus1, I don't know first hand about any guavas (I choose not to grow them), but I do know first hand about the appetites of wallabies (in particular Bennett's wallabies). There is a very sizeable Bennett's wallaby community around a propert..144 days 12hrs
