Coffee - Hi there, I've got five coffee plants, two were the foot high ones from Daleys (a Catui and a K7), an 18cm Arabica from Bunnings and two 8ish cm random Arabicas found on ebay. I have a reasonably sheltered courtyard that gets sun for a few hours,..2540 days 2hrs

Question:

Found it on the clearance/half dead shelf at Bunnings, bent double with the weight of 25 little olives. The trunk was no more than about 3mm in diametre. Have begun to freeform espallier the tree, it has grown a lot these last couple of months after not doing all the much (I think the fruit stressed it, at first). As well as new growth, there are some new little buds. The trunk has at least double in size.

Jasminum Sambac

Fragrant and delicious in teas or to flavour water. Blossoms smell and look amazing and the leaves are an interesting rounded shape and are a glossy mid yellowy-green. This variant is an Arabian Jasmine, it has an overblown single rose look. Both are growing up trellises. Have not been too badly affected by the Winter. New buds are forming already. Grows quickly in the warmer months. Was already flowering when I bought the first one.

Fabulous looking tree, the fruit are all knobbly. The leaves make an excellent Indonesian curry. Susceptible to citrus gall wasp, have now got a sticky trap to see if this is successful in minimising the perpetual damage. Forever scraping or cutting out gall. Despite this the tree is doing well.

Sounds like a delightful fruit. Bought from online site, three out of four  died from postal injuries (not Daleys, they have excellent postage services). Seems a fragile plant, avoid crushing. Has survived the Winter well, though no new growth as yet.

Daleys grown plant, bought from CERES at the beginning of 2012. Constantly growing beautiful new leaves. Despite reading that they are slow to grow, this one has been a steady grower and has only just paused for mid Winter. Looking forward to the day it fruits.
