Hi OZRJ where is this "Advanced Jaboticaba planted? Country/state?

I am in Sydney NSW & have planted 2 & just wondering what sort of care instructions would you have for me to apply on mine? (they are only very young newly planted this winter).

G'day Frank; It's planted in my front yard here on the Gold Coast, Qld. From what I've experienced, they are a very hardy plant but do not like to dry out. I keep mine mulched out to the drip line at all times and feed it with light doses of NPK or Mixed animal manure maybe every 6 months. Likes full sun. Cheers

Dwarf coconut trees - I live on the Gold Coast and really want to grow a couple of dwarf coconut trees. I would like to know how high these dwarf trees might grow and if they will grow here. Cheers Bob N..3732 days 4hrs
Pedalai - We had one in Darwin and it was spectacular! It grew so enormous and had plenty of fruit. The leaves are huge. Our tree was in part shade but once it grew bigger than the house was more in the sun. It thrived in the wet season. Some dumb tree lopper..4672 days 5hrs
Where are the bees - Hi guys, we have noticed a huge drop in the bees. We are pollinating the pumpkin by hand. It's very disturbing and sad...4963 days 7hrs

Fresh home grown garlic yum! Planted this garlic last April and harvested mid August. Pictures shw garlic still drying out. When dry I'll trim the stalks off and keep in a cool, dark and dry place.
