If you have an urban block and are looking for an attractive local hardy small tree that is not a gum, have a look at the Jam Tree. Said to smell like raspberry Jam when the wood is cut, this Acacia lives for around 40 years and has a beautiful hard timber. It is also the popular host tree used to grow Sandalwood and Quandong with.
Another underutilised Acacia is Curara. This is prized bush food with its immature edible seeds resembling green peas. Curara is a prickly shrub which every bird lovers should have in their garden as it proves a great (cat) safe habitat for birds and is awesome at directing traffic (away from it) so if you have a security issue and no fence this makes a great living one.
Seedlings available or both.. Just $4.40 each.
We are open Sunday or by appointment other times.
