  1. What beautiful fruits - I wish we could grow pink lady apples in our climate, they are a favourite around here. So far I only have a plum & cherry tree - I really need to get more fruit trees/bushes planted next year, especially as they take a bit of time to actually give you a good harvest so the sooner the better.

    1. Cheers Margaret! Yes, they do take their time unfortunately. I have a few trees I've had for 4 or 5 years and they haven't fruited yet. One day...

  2. Apples pears plums blueberries wow you can grow so much so successfully Bek. You are lucky Melbourne has a climate suitable for these trees and yours are a credit to you. We know it is hard work and meticulous planning that contributes to your high success rate, not just luck. Well done :D

    1. Cheers! I think a lot of the time it just takes knowledge of how to adapt to your climate. I've made many a mistake in my time with plants that just aren't suited to where I am. I'm just lucky to be in a fairly adaptable temperate climate. I can't grow the really high chill cherries and apples, but get enough chill for some varieties and yet don't have so many frosts that I can't grow some tropical fruits like bananas. They just take ages to crop of course!
