Queen garnet plum - Hi Peter1, My local Greengrocer Betros Bros sells the Garnett juice (I live in Toowoomba, Queensland). But you can order the juice online from http://www.nutrafruit.com.au/products.html I'm unsure if you buy it in small quantities or if you have ..Liked Answer 1401 days 5hrs

Pawpaws - Doesn't look too bad Peter. The new growth shows that the warm weather has got it going but it could be a bit hungry. I would put some mulch - 15-20cms deep -around the base of the tree, maybe with some dynamic lifter or compost underneath, and keep ..Liked Answer 1787 days 13hrs

Pruning passionfruit - Hi Peter1, I fairly sure passionfruit like a pH of 6.5 to 7.5, so your soil/potting mix was way out. (not to mention the soil under the pot was 4.2!

Comments: -

I like lemonade fruit as it has a more sweet flesh than lemons in general and makes a good refreshing drink when cold. Many years ago I remember purchasing this fruit at a selected fruit and vegie shop at Clayfield in Qld. I have never seen this fruit anywhere else except at Fruit World in NSW.

 

Fruiting Months September and October

Planted: 2010

Growing: In a Pot

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Complete Citrus Feed and slow release fertiliser. (Searles)

When I Fertilise: When Fruiting and Yearly

Pest Control:

White oil

Question:

I like to know why the flowers are not staying on. I've provided the plant with correct fertlizer, it's in a pot but I'm contemplating placing in the ground with real soil but not sure when to do this.

Will I need to place some type of support in the ground. i.e. a stick to help the plant support itself?
