Passionfruit – Black Grafted and Non-Grafted x 2; Banana (chopped right back & possibly will remove as it’s invasive!) Berries/ Berry Canes Boysenberry x 3 Currant – Red (2)
Gooseberry- Farmers Glory (red) & Captivator (green) Loganberry – Thornless Marionberry Raspberry- Willamette (8) & Everbearing (2)
Strawberry- Tioga and Selva (10), Nelly Kelly (2) It’s not all rosy though. We’ve also had some plants who have been quite rude and decided to die on us (the bastards!), due to harsh frosts & cold winds (can you say ‘glasshouse’??), and maybe too much fertilizer love or not enough watering, including these dead dudes: Banana – Cold-fruiting variety: 2 Dwarf Red Dacca; 1 Cavendish : frost bitten wusses Black Sapote : too cold for this dude Cumquat -:Marumi : Pecked to death and scratched up by the chickens Mandarin: Ellendale – not enough water in our front sandy soil White Sapote x 2 : too cold / a diseased plant from Cornucopia & also Diggers Grapefruit – Sweet Duncan: Maybe not enough water? or a bad graft from Cornucopia Persimmon Fuyu: Possibly not enough water and was also scratched up by the chickens a few times quite badly Bilberry x 2: possibly over-watered or a bad graft from Diggers Loquats: Not enough water in the sandy front garden Fig – Black Genoa : a bad graft & diseased plant from Diggers, which they replaced Blueberry- Brigitta (2), Northland & Denise (2) : Possibly not enough water or attention in summer Our wish list for the future (when we find a place for them) includes: Almond Cherimoya (Cold-tolerant custard apple) Finger Lime (Aussie native) Kiwiberry Macadamia Multi-graft Gage Plums (mmm Green Gage!) Sour Cherry (yummy Morello’s!) Hopefully in future, we’ll have a lot more added to our fruit tree list, at least until we’re running out of space, or fruit-eating friends & family! As we grow our little space, we are slowly adding annual flowers and perennial herbs like Rosemary & a Bay Tree & would like to eventually include more permaculture aspects to our garden like: bees & beehives, native bird nesting, bat & beneficial insect boxes, a pond to attract frogs, dragonflies, birds and bees, a perennial veg garden, a glasshouse (ooh to grow mangoes & banana’s), more water tanks and maybe one day a composting loo!
