    Which "it" are you talking about ?

    I used to pee on the rose bush next to the back door.

    Soon it was like a tree, dwarfing all the other rose bushes.

    I'm actually now focussed on planting shade trees, and I'm realizing that one rose bush that got all the urine, is actually big enough to provide shade.

    But I can only produce so much.

      Well I gave them a dose of Great White, Cyco Zyme, molasses and Seasol (seaweed solution), next time I go to Bunnings I will get some Dynamic Lifter.

        A thick layer of mulch will do wonders for your fruit trees helping the biology process the added nutrients. Ramial Chipped Wood (RCW) would be best as they are loaded with Nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium in the cambium layer saving you some money and another trip to Bunnings

            Nice.

            I'd like to see some pics of that sugarcane mulch when you get a chance.

                mulch looks nice though a bit close to the root crown. I suggest you pull it completely away 3 fingers or so to prevent disease.

                I would not use Cyco Zyme as it is made for soilless soil and may damage your roots if not enough organic matter is present

                Keep an eye on root temps also. Concrete can carry heat over the evening hours which may or not be what you want.
                Shading the containers would help keep the temp more consistent

                Lastly, sorry to hear of the bust
                bunch of fookin wanks for doin what they did
                Good vibes going forward mate

                    I dried out a Mango seed and then put it in the freezer.

                    Then I took it out of the freezer !!!

                    I think this is the part where I put it in soil and light a doob and then,

                    we wait

                    is it a paperweight or a baby fruit tree ?


                    I don't know if orange berries that birds like to eat, fall in the category of fruit.

                    will take pics when I'm not so lazy :-)

                    you know, those bushes that have bunches of orange berries ?

                    Birds like them I think.

                    I dried them out, they're almost done with that.

                    Then I was going to give them some freezer time,
                    and plant them.

                      Did you take the seed out of the seed husk or shell? Have had the most success doing that. Never put in the freezer though, always planted as fresh as possible.

                        I'm trying to simulate what they would get in nature.

                        Though I guess mango seeds might dry out, it's not like they're in the Himalayas or anything.

                        Anyway, will move it to "gentle warmth" on top of a ballast to dry it out. Then see what happens.

                        Also got some orange seeds.

                              Many fruit trees won't work this far north (usa/canada border)

                              Property has chokecherry and juneberry patches, we planted some apple trees, maybe get apples next year. If we get late spring frosts, no fruits.

                                First Walnut !


                                finally gave the walnut tree some shade on the ground, so the sun isn't baking the dirt.

                                the pollinator is a walnut tree in a pot, near the pot plants.
