We forget how important shade trees are until summer hits in Geraldton.**Want a magnificent shade tree ...Think about a Kaffir Plum..
We have lots of 1.5m trees - $55.00 each.
This South African fruit tree has glossy dark green leaves, is fast growing (especially when irrigated through the first two summers) and can live up to 150 years old.
It is a 7-8m drought tolerant species that has small red fruit with a tangy sweet flesh that can be eaten fresh or made into jellies, jams or rose wine.

It prefers to grow in free-draining neutral pH soils. Great for gardens and paddocks in: Waggrakine, Moresby, Beachlands, Park Falls, Glenfield, Deepdale, Wooree, Beresford, Moonyonooka, Northampton, Wonthella, Utakarra, Bluff Point, White peak, Spalding and Kalbarri.

Can I just ask if you do dwarf fruit trees

Cape Burney/greenough? Carobs grow?

Any suggestions for a very exposed section of Point Moore?

Just wondering what the root system is like? Is it invasive at all? Would like to plant in sheep yards which is next to a small orchard. Any probs?

Easy to grow. Got 2.

Are they pretty wind hardy ?

Tom Darcey is this tree the same as the one at the back of your house ?

Wow. Never heard of it. Edible fruit. Carlos will always be in that!

Could it grow in country between Balkarat & Colac, Victir iui a!?

Alan Howitt time for a name change?

OMG we just sold our house with a giant one of these. I had no idea it was edible. So spewing I never tried it.

So sorry: Ballarat, Victoria!!!?

Liz Janney how interesting! X

Share this out to anyone you know starting out gardening or tree planting.Free Soil ph tests - get the right plants for your soil type. It makes a huge difference in how well they grow.

Ever wondered why certain plants do extremely well and others don't. Ever had plants that look stressed or go yellow then die?
Understanding your soil ph will help unravel many of your mysteries. If you bring out a soil sample to the nursery we can do a ph test for you. As we are also familiar with the base soil types around Geraldton area, together with your soil test, we can advise you of the right species for your property which will minimise your plant loses.
The pictures describe how we need you to take your soil sample. We only need a tablespoon of soil from each area that you think has a different soil type. One from your verge or close by bush block would also be useful to know.

We are open Thurs to Monday 10am - 5.00pm. Any country folk coming thru at other times, just give us a call first and we'll try to accommodate times around your town trip.
