Blueberry - I have different varieties and they tend to react differently to cold. Can’t remember which is which but soil and fertiliser is the same but some have slight colour variations in leaves this time of year. Nothing to be concerned with, they flower and fr..342 days 22hrs
Finger lime fruiting - Congrats with your finger line tree fruiting. Much earlier than mine, I’ve had two plants for two years and now is the first time one has fruited. Have about 5 small fruits and a lot of flower buds starting to form. The other plant would’ve fruited to..353 days 2hrs
Fig cuttings available - Hi Peter, I’m interested in getting some cuttings, you have some varieties that I don’t have yet and would like to add them to the collection. My email is canadia76@yahoo.com. Cheers..353 days 8hrs
Panache fig tree - I’ve never tried the water method but will give it a try to experiment. Previous cuttings I just scrape a knife and dip in tooting hormone. Struck 12 out of 14...354 days 2hrs
Dragon fruit - I’m planning on cutting down this cocos palm because it blocks sunshine from my young mango tree. The tree looks nice but doesn’t provide anything. The trunk is about 30cm thick and I’m planning on keeping about 2-3m of trunk to use for growing DFru..378 days 4hrs
Panache fig tree - Hi Danny333... If Kim14 is out, try Tass1 over in Midvale. They have a few small panache’s there (had a few last weekend so call before you go incase all sold), they also have a few other varieties such as purple vigilante, brown bell, purple prince, b..388 days 0hrs
Poorly pecan1 - Pecans are deciduous and are affected in autumn/winter. The top leaves appear sun burnt but that could’ve been due to transferring pot to ground, some of my plants have done that due to shock and sensitive roots. Ive lost a couple of young jackfruits th..397 days 6hrs
My beautiful dwarf pawpaw lots of big - Nice one, I’ve tried Pawpaw before but not much luck. Flowers and small fruit just fall off. Will try again I think once I’ve sorted out all the current tolsnts that I have, ..399 days 8hrs
Pomelos grown in melbourne - Will follow this thread, I grow some here over in Perth. Unsure of the variety but suspect Carters Red, grew them from seed and they are four years old at the moment. Only fruiting Pomello I have at the moment is a general one with light yellow flesh...399 days 8hrs
Blooming mango trees - Another thing, this is a pic of my pathetic Alphonse. I’m not happy with the ‘branches’ as they are long and weak and seem to have been kept in shady place. If I snip them all off about 1-2cm down (one cut of the trunk), new branches should develop ..401 days 4hrs
Blooming mango trees - Thanks guys. The last flowering I did let it fruit so hopefully that will be the end of it. I was previously told it was continually flowering due to too much nitrogen so don’t fertilise (even though I though N was associated with leaf growth ??) Today ..402 days 5hrs
Blooming mango trees - My Kwan mango has gone crazy last couple years. No leaf or new branch growth whatsoever, just flowers only. I pluck them and sometimes cut them off with one growth of leaves but flower shoots keep on coming. Even growing directly out of the trunk and bran..404 days 1hrs
Heirloom fig varieties - Hi Danny, It’s okay.... Regarding where the festival was, I used google :) ..455 days 1hrs
Tree spacing - Hi Fruitylicious1, Thanks for your advice, I was leaning towards one single tree (4.5m gap) between the two also. Having four along there would be a bit cramped. The mango would need to be dug up before the pool fill in as it’s only a metre away, once ..455 days 4hrs
Heirloom fig varieties - I didn’t know about the garden festival, where was it? I have purple vigilante but was from a cutting that I rooted last autumn so can’t comment on taste. Your one looks a lot bigger so I guess you’ll find out before me. I’m slowly getting a fig ..456 days 1hrs
