Caterpillar id - I'm pretty confident that it's a cup moth caterpillar. It looks a lot like this one: http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.com.au/lima/lozogramma.html But it doesn't have the red, so maybe it's a different species...287 days 8hrs

Anyone have dwarf macadamia they want to - I don't have any to trade, but I can confirm that my two are slow growing, I've had them for 1.5 years and they have gone from 30cm to a whopping 35cm. One has even flowered but no nuts yet. Around here there are lots in bunnings at the moment. You mig..350 days 12hrs
Unhappy apricot - Thanks for the replies, not sure what happened to my previous reply. I'll try extra water for now, I've also planted some soy beans around the tree to stabilise the soil and hopefully give a little nitrogen boost. If that doesn't help then I'll move it..350 days 12hrs
Unhappy apricot - My newcastle apricot has been looking unhappy all summer and I can't figure out why. The leaves are green and I couldn't see any suspicious blemishes, but they are all rolled up. It is in grey sandy soil on a bit of a slope, it is in part shade with a ..363 days 10hrs
Rainbow eucalyptus tree - I've never seen them for sale, and I think you would struggle to find them. The problem is that they are not on the WA organism list which shows what can or can't be imported. If it's not on the list that means it's automatically not allowed. If y..411 days 5hrs

Native bush foods - This website can help you check which plant species are native to your area: http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/floraonline.htm If you can get a book or other list of NSW bush tucker plants you could use it to check which ones are local for you. I'v..481 days 12hrs
Falling fruits as a source of local - Falling Fruit is a community driven website which maps free edibles. Most of these 'edibles' are fruit trees that are either on public land or overhang public land. I've used it as an occasional source of local fruit and added a few trees that I know ..493 days 8hrs

Grafted avocado size - My neighbours have solar panels that would be shaded if my fruit trees get over about 4m, and I'd rather not have to do too much pruning, but I'd like to have a few more types of avocado to extend the fruiting season and maybe get better pollination (curr..537 days 15hrs

Pandanus - Edible (Seedling) 7/10

Kath5's Edible Fruits
Update: 935 days 12hrs

Comments: - Lovely fragrant plant but always struggled in Perth winters until it rotted one year. It might have done better if I'd kept it inside in winter and been more careful not to overwater.

Hi, it died so I don't have any, but I originally bought it from Canning Vale Sunday market, so you might be able to get one there.
