    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    Everything seems to be going well except the Pink Ice, there was some minor leaf drop on the others but this is resolving now. They are all planted in the same mixture as explained above and they are all in the same protected area of the back yard. It's just odd that the two biggest ones I...

    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    As promised: These are some who have been having a tough time of it, most of the others have been going fairly well.

    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    I am adding more fingerlimes to my collection but it's been a bit of an up and down experience thus far. Some have grown nicely since my original post and others are struggling considerably with leaf drop and the occasional bit of dieback. I think I may be over watering thought I have found...

    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    Hi ClissAT, sure did, I've been getting them confused all day. In the end I actually went with; 50% Coir 10% Perlite 5% Biochar 35% Osmocote premium potting mix and Rooster Booster. Depends how long you want to wait (It can be a long time for any fruit tree), I also think citrus grown from...

    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    Hi ClissAT, Just basic black poly grow pots from bunnings (200mm): Planning to use soil based medium, they will be going around the perimeter of the garden where they get almost full sun most of the day. Wind exposure is low as this is a large suburban back yard that is fenced in and located...

    Fingerlime Extravaganza

    G'day, I've recently planted a few fingerlimes here in Brisbane and was so happy with them that I've gone out and bought 20 more to grow from around 5 - 20cm in pots. I have a large surplus of 200mm grow pots so I am looking to put the newly arrived plants in these until they are ready to move...

    Problem Small green grasshopper issue

    I've resorted to doing patrols every few hours and manually smashing them, not a sustainable approach I'm afraid.

    Problem Small green grasshopper issue

    I have the same issue, an absolute plague of them have decimated 25% of the garden. They seem to target the large eggplant leaves specifically but I've also had them go through Sage, Basil, Passionfruit and Broccoli. Only thing that has worked so far is physically removing them and putting up...
