About My Edible Backyard


Why Daisy2 Love's Edible Plants

Extremely sandy soil; med - heavy frost twice a year; rainfall fluctuates; orchard faces nw; biggest challenge is dealing with frosts.

hi daisy sorry for the 2 month delay don't spend enough time on updates miracle fruit seems to like acidic soil , partial shade, no frost, and protection from sa's hot northerly winds in feb etc even mine during a return to a cool winter have survived ( have lost their healthy greeness ) i expect with some fertiliser & warmer weather they will improve remember they are a tropical african species so they will need care in sa cheers
