About My Edible Backyard


Why Carlton Love's Edible Plants

Front yard gets the best sun, have a huge fence up so I have used it to help protect the dwarfs. Out the back yard is 3 olives and a lemon (in a pot). More arriving shortly.



I have clay soil, so I had some blended top soil bought in, some for raised garden beds that I just bought, the rest to help with the garden.



The trees in the ground have had holes dug at least 4 times as deep and wide as the plants themselves. I then replaced the soil with blended top soil (manure in it).



Olives variety unknown at last inspection 19-10-09



Olive H - 2.55 H x 2.8 W no sign of any buds



Olive S - 2.65 H  x 1.8 W small amount of flower buds



Olive F - 2.6 H x 2.4 W full of flower buds

I have one not much bigger that is three years old (in Brisbane). They seem to be very slow growing.
