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 ?

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.
