Why Whyanbeel Love's Edible Plants
Started my own orchard 8 years ago whilst working for Andre Leu, mostly clay to loamy soils, high rainfall 4 - 5 metres, growing mostly mangosteens and durians with grumichama hedges, as wind breaks. challanges include fungal problems with the durians and scrub turkeys spreading mulch. reward, first mangosteens off two trees in january, approx 65 trees (mangosteens) so hopefully many more to come. Looking forward to a durian crop soon also approx 40 trees. Andre has been my inspiration, with many helpfull tips/ advice, along with others including Alan Carle, Deiter Kershner and Arden Dearden.
A very rewarding experience that i'm encouraging my two young sons to become involved in, by helping them plant trees and caring for them by taking ownership.
Future plans are to plant out another 60 durians on a easterly faceing slope, with the intention of one day deriving an income in retirement years.
