Carambola - Kembangan (Grafted) 8/10

KateGreen1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3473 days 17hrs

Comments: -

I absolutely love fresh starfruit and I am attempting to provide a micro climate for it. Although this plant was knocked around when we received 3 days in a row over 40 degrees, I have nurtured it and it is still doing pretty well considering it is still small. The winter didn't seem to worry it too much although I did protect it from the frost.

Dwarf Peach (Grafted) 5/10

Update: 3473 days 17hrs

Comments: -

This is a dwarf variety, but compared to my other dwarf peach it is growing painfully slow. I have fertilised it well and it is even in a better spot. PH is spot on, so I think it must just be the variety.
