A recent post by Kathy at My Productive Backyard dealt with culinary use of the Australian Finger Lime. I decided I had to try and grow one.
I rang the local nursery where I usually buy my fruit trees. “Nah”, he said, “don’t often have ’em….try again in spring.” Bother.
I had to call into Bunnings to get potting mix. They won’t have even heard of it, I decided.
“Oh, yes,” she said, “some came in on Wednesday.” I choked.
Beautiful little plants. I was rapt, especially in the tiny leaves :
I need to do some homework about where to put it….garden or large pot? Kathy has a post here on growing it. We don’t get frosts here and the deck would be an ideal spot in winter (in a pot) but far too hot in summer. Shifting it wouldn’t be easy (down the steps?…no way).
Anyway….I have it and it looks really healthy. Plenty of time to do some homework and it can stay on the deck in its present pot, enjoying the winter sun until I find it a permanent home.
