    What bushtucker have you got growing? What is it in (pots/ground)? How much space do you have? How propagated (seeds, cuttings, tubestock, etc.)? Etc. I'd love to know all about it. Appreciate pics too.

    I have a baby Atherton Raspberry that I bought on ebay a few weeks ago from a bloke out near Ipswich - it was basically a stem about 30cm with a few sad-looking leaves when it arrived (I think raspberry stems are called canes? Still learning). The Atherton is a rainforest native that produces fruits supposedly similar to the European varieties, but obviously better suited to our climate.

    I am a humble balcony farmer, so it's been transplanted to a small pot (for now). It's doing very well in spite of the weather ups and downs of the last month, and didn't appear to suffer any transplant shock at all. A hardy little guy, I must say. I planted it into a handful of my home-made compost, premium potting soil, and have seasol'd and liquid fertilized it once. It's not shy of a daily watering, either.
