Tamarillo in wicking beds - Hi Adam. I grow Tamarillos in Canberra. But due to the heavy frosts here, I propogate new plants each year in pots and protect them under north facing eaves each winter for planting in open soil in their second year. They fruit prolifically and then di..950 days 13hrs

I recently purchased an Elderberry Canadensis from Daleys, but was surprised to see it sprout golden leaves.  I had not expected the "Aurea" (Golden) variety as I did not even know that Daleys sold that.  However, the golden leaves look great. I just hope that the fruit is as good as that of the green leaved variety.  I initially thought that I might have a soil problem, such as a lack of nitrogen, but a gentle application of seasol based power feed made no difference to the colour of the foliage. Is Daleys actually propogating Sambucus Nigra ssp. Canadensis Aurea (Golden Elder) and intending to sell in due course?
