I am lazy and id like advice - Oh, had to come back with another idea, but it may be a little more work. If you are going to have a veggie patch anyway, maybe consider upgrading the veggie patch a little and plant it out on the worst part of slope (the part you don't want to mow). A..18hrs27mins
I am lazy and id like advice - I agree with Bangkokii. If you are only planning on being there 5 years, then you will be doing all the work setting up an orchard for the next owners/tennants (who would probably just tear it all down again because people have a habit of 'painting their ..19hrs41mins
Best peach or nectarine variety - Hi again, Since Fruity has also suggested Fragar, I just want to re-affirm that they are white peaches, and are cling stone. Just so you know. If you are considering using them in traditional recipes, like pavlovas, trifles etc, then maybe yellow f..2 days 15hrs
Best peach or nectarine variety - Do you like white or yellow, cling or freestone? I personally prefer yellow, but that is just my preference. Some friends prefer white. I grew up with an Elberta peach tree, so Elberta has become my standard (and probably my favourite, even if nostalgia..3 days 2hrs
Lady finger banana transplanting - Hi Jesse, Banana plants come back well. I'm not a banana professional but I had a dozen or so in my orchard until last Spring. Winter 2017 was very dry. Virtually no rain for 3 months or so and I did my best to be able to keep enough water up to my or..73 days 19hrs
Avocado tree help - Hi ttran, How much of the ground does the paving at the base of the tree cover? How long has it been there? It doesn't show any signs of movement, so it looks like only a year or two. I looked up the annual rainfall figures for Garden Grove, Califo..81 days 21hrs
Soursop tress - Hey Waterfall, Just clicked on your FB link. Wow! The flashback photo to 2014! You have been busy! Your Loquats are getting some colour in them too. Good stuff...256 days 15hrs
Soursop tress - Hi Sharon, I have two Soursops with me here on the Central Coast. They are only small and still in pots (one in a supertube and the other in a 175mm pot). This is the first winter for both of them here (they won't be here next winter though). Both hav..256 days 15hrs
Reed avo trees - Ciao amico, Southern Italy would have nurseries with avocados. Reed is common, and was also used as root-stock for grafting other avocados onto, so I'm confident you'll find a nursery somewhere near the area your house is located. Best suggestion to fi..264 days 17hrs
Apples8 - Hi Randolph, I doubt Eve is on the market yet. For those I think you'd have to wait for Montague Orchards to release it for public sale. They are a good apple though. I planted about 20 - 30 Eve seeds last year as a novelty, and have since lost them (a..264 days 20hrs
Seville orange - Hey Bruce, I like the Rangpur Lime suggestion also...266 days 17hrs
Seville orange - Hi Bruce. 4 cm diameter seems a bit too small to be a 'Seville' orange in my opinion, so a kumquat was just the first alternative that I thought would be most likely. Another suggestion could be Citrus (or Poncirus) trifoliata. It is a very common root..295 days 18hrs
Seville orange - Hi Bruce. Could they be kumquats? When I used to live in Wollongbar, quite a few people had kumquat trees. They were pretty common and they were usually used to make jam/marmalade (we affectionately named 'the bite')...298 days 21hrs
Need to identify - Podocarpus elatus (Plum Pine). Don't have a recipe for you though, sorry about that. Someone else may have a suggestion. The trees are fantastic!..314 days 20hrs
My mango seedling root has cracked from - Yes. I planted a seed from a Calypso, which is monoembryonic (only one embryo, and therefore only one tree from a single seed). When eating the mango it came from, I accidentally broke off the tap root (it had germinated whilst inside the fruit and the..316 days 10hrs

Russet apples - Hi guys, Anybody know where I could procure a Russet Apple variety tree in Sydney? Preferably in person as shipping rates are both high and delivery can be untimely. I grew up in England and have fond memories of eating small and firm brown apples t..Liked Question 325 days 19hrs
