Backyard fruit: Jobs to do in Spring - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Good morning Everyone. I just bought my house in Hastings two years ago. I have far from a green thumb, but have started growing lemons and limes in pots. What do I need to do to keep growing fruit? I am especially having trouble growing the limes. The trees are about a year old.
Question do we recieve a copy of this recording???Thanks Colleen
What about thinning lemons and limes
If plums are dropping is that the tree self-thinning?
Thats terrible spraying like that
how long does it take for kiwi fruit trees to fruit??
I have a mandarin tree that needs to be repositioned I believe Spring is a good time but how much should I cut it back prior to transplanting so shock doesn't set in?
Yes on my nectarine tree
My Smart Garden
I'll ask in the next break Anita
I sprayed a bit late this year. The fruit is affected. Should I spray again? I'm picking leaves off one by one now.
Videos on YouTube talk about spraying with vinegar mix
is this the same issue for cherry trees? mine has curl and thousands of black aphids
Does it work or will harm the soil and plant
does the bicarbonate spray help with the aphids also?
.I sprayed lime sulfer twice around leaf drop and bud burst but it has still appeared. I have trimmed the badly affected tips on both peach and nectarine and picked some leaves and sprayed seasol on the tips.Is there anything else I can do or just put up with it.
I think you've covered it thankyou.
My elder trees set flower but don't set berries. Is that normal in Melb or can I do something?
My tahitian lime leaves are curling but there are no silvery tracks. What else might it be? I read that it might be calcium??
My lemon tree have turned yellow and dropping off, even though it has lots of buds? Should I spray with bi-carb
Can you effect your Alcohol level if using metho as hand wash?
ie .05 etc
Yes my elder is from that community garden
my lemons are all green and not turning yellow . what do you think is the problem?
what is the best way to treat black sooty mold
Yes, I am tending to have the same issue as Lyndi C at times
what about cherries
I have 2 passionfruit vines which started in a raised garden and after about 6 months I installed a greenhouse and they're now inside the greenhouse, I leave the greenhouse door open. The vines are going well, but will they produce fruit? They're now about a year old. I don't know if they're male or female.
I will have to leave as my internet connection keeps going in and out, hopefully i will recieve the slides for this presentation,thanks again Colleen
My Smart Garden
Yes Colleen, I'll follow up with an email next week. Thanks for coming.
At what stage should I protect from codling moth? I have tiny apples. Is it too late?
A bit late on this, but can you prune cherries hard?
You said to compost mulch but not damaged apple parts. Why?
how do u avoid split citrus fruits and also dry fruits
so should we prune water shoots after fruiting? or can we do some now?
My Smart Garden
Phew, my system just totally shut down for a moment there. Doesn't look like your connection was affected. I have lost all previous questions though sorry. If you had an unanswered questions please shoot through again.
This was my original question at the start but it might be for the citrus section: I have a year old lemon and lime tree in pots. I am far from having a green thumb. How do I get it to produce fruit successfully? and when?
Not sure when to ask this question. In an attempt to save space I was told I can plant more than one tree in the same hole and then prune as one tree. I have 2 apple and a pear in one hole and a peach, plum and apricot in another hole. I also have a mandarin and orange together. I planted full size trees thinking this would account for any stunting with being close. I haven't had them long and just want to know I am not wasting my time. I live in Seymour in Victoria.
There are a series of white dots along the middle of my leaves on my lime tree - What are they and how do I get rid of them?
How do you deal with snails on citrus trees?
my passion fruit has gone a bit yellow & droopy , it was doing well before that ..
Within the last 4 months, I've added trace elements, citrus food, and compost. Given the curly leaf/trace elements advice, am I at risk of over-fertilising ?
The tree's in a pot.
where is the best spot to plant a tree tomato ? mine is growing a bit sideways ..
will a lemon tree drop leaves if over watered ?
what do you suggest to use for trace element feed?
how do avoid split fruits and also dry fruits
My Mandarin trees didn’t fruit at all last year but this year they have many flowers on them, what was the problem last year?
Another question from earlier - how do you make your lemons go yellow. They tend to remain green
can we view this presentation later ? I missed a little bit ..
Do I have to wait for autumn/post fruiting to re-pot or is now ok?
My lemon tree has very yeven though it has lots of budsellow leaves that are dropping off
Thank you for the tips on curly leaf and gall wasp. I have to leave the session but once again thank you.
I have a mandarin tree, about a year old, planted in the ground. It had lots of blossoms in its first year but no fruit turned up. Is that unusual?
For the grapefruit person... if you can find a neighbour who has a fruit they don't like & you do, and they like grapefruit... swap.
Does a citrus tree need sun on the whole tree over winter or can half of it be in shade?
Will birds/other animals be able top see the black net?
sorry, i missed the name of the fertilizer product you were talking about
I am looking at planting bare rooted grape vine when they are available and are curious as to whether they should be planted north to south or east to west in an full sun area between other fruit trees?
How often during summer and for how long do I need to water my fruit trees with a recently installed automated drip system.
I will be away on holidays for 4 weeks when the border to NSW opens - How do I ensure that my lemon and lime trees in pots get enough water when I am away? My drip pipes are in the ground for the rest of my garden
Will passionfruit grow in Seymour Victoria. I have concerns with the impact of frost.

Couldn't get the vines this year as unavailable.
Is there a type of grape that would be best in Melbourne in such a hot spot?
Is a bottle like this size ideal for watering into my lemon and limes in pots - I am holding it up in front of my picture now
can u grow bananas in mlb
