Guava tees in melbourne - Our Hawai'ian guavas have a strong, sweet taste, which is what I expected from all that I'd heard about them before we put them in. We use fish emulsion, cow manure, grass clippings, and wasted coffee grinds as fertilizer / mulch; so maybe that helps t..2862 days 5hrs
Pruning white sapote - We found the only way to get our three young white sapotes to branch out was to hard prune them. They were three whips, two already eight feet tall before we learned to snip the trunk to get branches started. I've always wondered just how high they'd..2869 days 17hrs
How to plant a tree - Super to hear it, N! Hope you have good weather while you dig. Summer in Melbourne must be a treat. Hey Phil - much thanks for the honour bestowed upon me of honorary Aussie (or at least the hope of it.) How come there's that extra "u" in "honou..2873 days 16hrs
How to plant a tree - Hi N, My "Australian" is reasonably good (I understand most of the time), so here's a go at responding to your questions. 3. Kath said clay soil or "heavy soils"; these are soils which do not drain well and would hold the water rather than let it ..2875 days 23hrs

Non-astringent & crisp.  Our tree came bareroot and took a full year to make a leaf, but it made up the slow start with profuse flowering and a decent crop in its first fruiting year.  Second year crop was about the same.  Increased water (we irrigate twice a week only - restrictions), by locating a sprinkler head nearby, and the thrid crop is much improved in quantity.
