About My Edible Backyard


Why Chris4 Love's Edible Plants

 My orchard is located on a 1/4 acre block on the NSW Central Coast. Most of the fruit trees are planted on an east facing bank. The trees are protected from strong western sun by a row of casuarina trees. There are a number of trees in pots and half wine barrels.
