Looking for help with questions about pollination for the Midyim Berry. Does it require pollination and doea it need a plant nearby or will bees do the job? Anyone help. Thanks. I planted out of the pot in April and it is fruiting now (June 2015) I was surprised to see the berries so soon. Must like its spot.Swish...

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 8/10

HappyEarth's Edible Fruits
Update: 2108 days 20hrs

Comments: - Hard trees to get established - starting to do well now after a couple of years in the ground.  Literally planted by placing on top of the soil and mounding around it with a mixture of potting mix and compost.  Also, are growing temporary shade trees around it to provide partial shade for the young avocado in its first few years.  I feel this has made a big difference to the success of growing avocados after a couple of early failures.  Good Luck!

Have a read of this webpage http://www.bioresources.com.au/MacTrix/fruitspottingbug.html. The person who does this research lives a few rural blocks away from me. I am sure that there will be similar insects in Wollongong.

I planted 2 small Rios last December. They haven't grown at all. They're in Sydney, sunny spot, plenty of compost. Soil is a bit acid ~pH6. Any suggestions on what I'm not doing correctly?
