Go Green! Use your outdoor space and smile more

March 03, 2020

use your outdoor space and smile more

Get back to nature and become self sufficient at home; whether you're planning a backyard garden, courtyard hideaway or balcony oasis; our multi-grafted fruit trees will give your space a point of practical beauty.

Backyard Garden Paradise

With technology taking hold and keeping us indoors it's good to break away and get in touch with nature, get some fresh air in our lungs and be rewarded for our own work.

By planning ahead and using your space you could easily fit multiple fruit trees into your garden that will give you a variety of fruit all year around.

The top considerations would be to choose a location that has lots of sunshine (minimum 6 hours/day), with well drained soil (do a pH test before planting) with protection from strong wind.

Try your hand at composting and growing some companion plants that would bring in pollinators and beneficial insects to keep the nasties at bay.

Courtyard Hideaway 

If you're starting a family and only have a small space then nothing will bring you and the kids closer together than picking a multi-grafted tree for your garden and helping it grow together!

Fruit Salad Trees can be grown in the ground or in large pots (1/2 a wine barrel in size at maturity).

Even though you only have a small area you'll be able to reduce your carbon foot print and pick fresh fruit in your own outdoor space. Teach the kids about healthy living and spending time together.

Balcony Oasis 

Only have a little space? You can still have delectable fresh fruit grown by your very own hands. Our multi-grafted fruit trees grow great in pots - the bigger the pot the bigger the tree.

The size of the tree and the amount of the fruit you harvest will be determined by the size of the pot. All you will need is some good potting mix and top soil, with a few tablespoons of slow release fertiliser and a  handful of mulch to start you on your green journey.
