About My Edible Backyard


Why 4Poppies1 Love's Edible Plants

 I've always enjoyed cooking & basic gardening but only recently have had the time to actually do more than window sill herbs and a couple of veggie beds, there is a possible move in the works so mostly pots and plans atm. The challenge with a moderate to high frost area is fun, climate here is classified as warm/temperate to highland subtropic with significant rainfall even in the driest month. Getting the kids involved is a huge bonus & we are enjoying our enthusiastic though novice status.

Citron - Buddhas Hand (Grafted)

4Poppies1's Edible Fruits
Update: 177 days 0hrs

Comments: - Love citrus and have always wanted one of these, it's a beautiful tree even without the added interest of the craziest looking fruit. Going to try and make something like salt preserved lemons & marmalade with it when it starts fruiting. 

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

Pest Control: Sprayed with homemade garlic/oil/soap mix because it's with bush lemons with leaf curl.

Cut leaf mintbush (Cutting) 8/10

4Poppies1's Edible Fruits
Update: 177 days 1hrs

Comments: - Love the smell of this, it's all Daleys said and more, unfortunately because of the time in transit & I think there might have been a little leak in the packaging it dried out badly and I had to cut it right back to bottom set of branches. Fairly hardy though and has come back with quick, strong growth. 

Described as a smell between chilli/mint, I'd add there is a citrus element there too, almost like Thai/Asian curry pastes. 

Pollination: No
