My garlic 🧄 is coming up !!! 🙌🙌🙌😁

Its Sunday again already, and we are open 9am-12 noon.
Have 5 Candle nut (Aleurites moluccana) trees available. The cooked nuts well known and eaten in tropical countries. We have them in larger (6 litre) stock. $55 each. Not sure how they will go in Geraldton, as they are tropical plants and will need irrigation during summer to survive. I don't imagine they would get that big here due to the dry climate. They may even submit to the hot summer days but until we try we won't know. They are growing in Perth but I don't know of any in the Geraldton area. They grow really quickly and according to one website can live to 120 year old in Brisbane. trusttrees.org.au/tree/QLD/Brisbane/Brisbane_City_Botanic_Gardens_Alice_Street_17

Looking great Julie 💕

Julie do you have any KP mangoes

Open 9am -12 noon Sunday. This week we are releasing some smaller Kensington Pride mango seedlings for those that wish to grow them larger or graft them. These grow relatively true to form and are the most cold tolerant variety for this area. They will fruit usually within four year if left ungrafted. $14.30 each
And 5 patchouli plants available. ($20 each)
If you yet to try you hand at Mango grafting, here is an excellent WA ag note on how to do it. www.agric.wa.gov.au/mangoes/propagating-mangoes

A couple more photos of the week's rendering on the strawbale teaching building.. Thankyou to Brooke and Nina for a great couple of days!
