About My Edible Backyard


Why IanW Love's Edible Plants

I love growing exotic fruits - seeing the plants grow, flower and fruit. I've grown
carnivorous plants for decades, its a whole new world in edibles. I have
very little space, as I'm in a flat on the side of a house. All my
fruit trees need to be dwarf or kept small.

Hello Ian, wow very interesting! would you have any Carnivorous plant seeds at all that I could buy? Which city are you growing all these at ?
IanW says... [63 days 4hrs ago]
Hi Farouk, I'm in Ashfield in Sydney. Yes, I do have carnivorous plant seeds for sale on behalf of the Australasian Carnivorous Plant society. I have a PDF seed list.

Miracle Fruit (Cutting) 7/10

Question: How can I help it flourish? Its been losing leaves since I bought it. I repotted it in a azelea, compost perliet and sand mix, which stopped the loss for the rest of Winter, but now the leaves are browning at the edges. In a few months it will be dead if no new leaves grow. I've now covered it with a plastic box to raise the humidity above Sydney's humid normal.
