custard apple (Grafted)

Not sure what root stock this is on but it was marketed as a cold tolerant variety.  Hasn't seen any damage as yet and is a fairly slow grower.  I think it needs to move from where it is though.  In hind sight it's going to need more room and it definetly needs to be out of reach of the passionfruit vine!  - so I translanted this one to a roomier position and then got a nasty frost.  It does not look happy at all!  But it's still hanging in there.  Compost and worm juice and we'll see what happens

Green Sapote (Seedling) 4/10

I was a bit worried about this one after a particularly dry spell, all the leaves curled up and it was basically a stick.  Re-potted it, added some compost and liquid fertiliser and it's doing fine.

Has come back well, reshooting from the base- lots of new growth even during our winter
