This year I have grown some Jojoba (pronounced Hohoba) seedlings. Plants I have growing here at the Farm have done really well with minimum watering and no fertilisation on Banksia sands. Our plants would be nearing 25 years old and are between 1.5 and 2m.  They are bushy to the ground and heat, wind and drought tolerant. And are great screening plants. They have never been bothered by any insects or disease.The females readily seed every year. The liquid wax from their seed has a high economical value. Plants are male or female. Bees absolutely love them when they flower and our bushes sound like they are about to take off.Here is a link on about their commercial potential, pros and cons. https://agrifutures.com.au/farm-diversity/jojoba/I have a lot of time for this long lived plant and it has become one of the high value species within out diverse windbreak systems.333 David Road,

Open again Sunday.. Rain or shine..  Hopefully rain.. 9am-3pm
Heres a special small endemic acacia that grows in the Chapman Park. I am planting lots here this year on the farm but have 1/2 a tray to spare.   My roadside plantings of these  lasted about 15 years.
It is known as the tabletop acacia (Acacia ericifolia) due to its shape in summer.  It often grows with a flat top and its weepy foliage in hangs over it like a lace tablecloth.  It does particularly well in Banksia sandplain country.. ie Waggrakine, Moresby, Parkfalls, and Strathalbyn areas.
Seedlings $6.60 each.333 David Road,

We’ll take them Julie! I think you gave us 4, but we’ll have whatever you’ve got

Katie Bennett in Waggrakine 👍👌

Amongst all this madness with costs these days, globally, I think your prices are incredibly reasonable, especially when you consider the quality of the stock you provide.
