MatthewT says... [3 days 3hrs ago]
My pot is 38L and I water once a week about 2L. I found the soil is still moist most of the time after mulching. So I just water once a week and make sure water drips from the bottom

I have three plants growing at the moment trained as espaliers. One is trained as an informal, the second one is simple horizontal and the last one is a variation of the simple horizontal. It's my way of expressing myself.

Macadamia 741 8/10

Glennis1's Edible Fruits
Update: 50 days 13hrs

Height 1 mtr (18/01/2012)

Height 1.5 mts (20/11/2012)

Height  3.5 mts (29/11/2017)

This is in the back corner of the garden . Macadamia 741 is supposed to be able to be heavily pruned . Thats why i bought that variety . 

Because this is an Australian rainforest tree it needs a fertiliser with very little phosphorous . Less that 3% is good . Load the tree up with mulch , and because it is a rainforest tree it doesn't matter if the mulch is right up against the trunk . All plants need sun to grow including rainforest plants . When planting pretend its a rose and cultivate the soil well before planting . They have timid roots so needs a big loosened area to grow well . Excellent drainage in full sun .

Fig - Sandpaper Birds Eye (Cutting) 10/10

Russtrac1's Edible Fruits
Update: 57 days 4hrs

Comments: -

I purchased this tree from Daleys only a few weeks ago and it is already fruiting at less than a metre high! Nearly 10 figs I have counted, which is more than the leaves that are on the tree! Not sure whether they will drop or not, but I am quite astounded. Arrived in excellent condition, growing in large pot. 

Update: all but 2 figs dropped. But these 2 are almost full sized :)

Drumstick Tree ( Moringa ) (Seedling) 7/10

Jane16's Edible Fruits
Update: 83 days 10hrs

Comments: -

When it arrived we had unusually bad weather in Sydney, a heat wave of 43C which lasted for several days. The bottom branch and all the leaves were yellow when it came. I transferred it to a pot, blood and bone with some rock dust with 100% organic compost. I moved it to my verandah. It received filtered sunlight, ~6hours, and full sun 2- hours. Daily watering. The weather turned and it became unusually cold and windy but I continued my daily watering. During this time, the branches became more yellow. In total 4 branches with all the leaves changed color and fell off. More than half the plant was like this and I thought it would die. The weather then heated up to ~40C again and I moved it to less direct sunlight, now ~2hours. The new foliage is now green and it appears happy, after ~3weeks of purchase. I am not sure when at the beginning it was dying. ? Too much fertiliser - I might have given too much blood and bone ? Overwatering ? Underwatering ? Transfer shock. It was very hit and miss, I thought the plant would die. I was surprised because for some reason I thought this would be an easy plant to grow, but I have since read other ppl's accounts (experienced gardeners) who have said this is a tricky plant to grow. Something else I noticed is that it seems to have a very shallow root system, so at least in the young stages it probably won't tolerate heat well.

It was thriving and getting quite tall so I repotted it. Unfortunately I accidentally damaged most of the root(!), they're very small. I couldn't see any big tap roots. It's now with organic cow manure as a top up and some Powerfeed. The new location receives ~4hours of full sunlight daily. **Something I noticed even before I repotted - this plant really likes water. I had kept it with figs, brazilian cherry, coffee and jaboticaba - and this plant would soak up all the left over water in the bottom water tray daily. It drinks more water than those other plants.

Coffee K7 (Seedling) 7/10

Lynden's Edible Fruits
Update: 83 days 14hrs

Planted: 2018

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 6

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Question: I have just planted my six K7 coffee trees in the last 10 days. It has been hot and dry  and windy at Stokers Siding but I've been watering and the trees are reasonably protected from wind. The tops of some of the leaves are an orangy-brown while the underside is still green. Any ideas? Maybe just a bit of transplant shock?

Jane16 says... [83 days 13hrs ago]
I've only had mine (x2) for a few weeks so limited experience but so far I've had it in ~6hours filtered light, ~2hours direct sunlight only and it seems to be doing ok. We've had a heat wave in Sydney and it's fine so far. Yours might be in too much sun.
Lynden says... [82 days 16hrs ago]
Cheers for that Jane. Yes they are getting a bit more sun than yours but not full sun and I'll keep my fingers crossed as only a few leaves are affected. I understand as they increase in size they become more sun tolerant.

Maybe it is more subtropical than a warm temperate zone.  Likely it wasn't protected enough

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions until we can actually be there full time to care for the more delicate

Question: How far apart should you plant them.  We have two.

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb
Fiona11 says... [363 days 10hrs ago]
Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.

Orange - Cara Cara (Grafted) 9/10

Stevieee1's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 12hrs

Planted: 2018

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Organic Status:Organic

Question: The Cara Cara is not strictly a blood orange. True blood oranges like the Tarocco and Arnold have anthocyanin pigments that give them their colour. Anthocyanins are the same nutritious pigments that give many fruits (blueberries mulberries etc) their dark colouring. The pigment that gives the Cara Cara it's colouring is lycopene which is the same pigment found in tomatoes and watermelon. Both pigments are very important in the human diet so I suggest getting both a blood orange and a Cara Cara.

Dwarf Peach - Standard (Grafted) 10/10

DesKing1's Edible Fruits
Update: 103 days 7hrs

Comments: -

   Planted in a raised bed with full sun in late Jan 2017 (Gold Coast). Broke dormancy in late August, and produced eight attractive pink flowers. I allowed these to form small pea-sized fruit, then removed so the tree could put all its energy into establishing a strong root structure. The raised bed has a thick layer of cane mulch (about 150mm).

   I fertilize with varying ratios and amounts of Dynamic LIfter or Rooster Booster, sulphate of potash and blood and bone at the beginning of spring, summer and autumn. I also give fortnightly foliar sprays of a diluted solution of Seasol, Powerfeed for flowers and fruit, soluble sulphate of potash, and Epsom salts during the non-dormant months.

   I use a moisture meter, and water the tree as necessary.

   In the past year (to Jan 2018) the tree has grown really well (about 850mm tall), and this year I'll let it develop a few fruit for us to taste. I'll give it a bit of a haircut during winter when dormant.
