Cherimoya seedlings

Lucky us, we were gifted x2 cherimoya plants by our neighbours W& P, thanks guys! These little babies will be nurtured until they are much bigger before we can plant them in our new subtropical orchard.

We have just made a Japanese/Oz fusion
dry river bed garden with rocks from the garden, river gravel and some native grasses and ferns, which doubles as a French drain. Do you have Dicksonia there and bamboo?
Just got some lovely Timor Black bamboo off e-bay for our Jurassic garden.
None of our chickens have laid an egg!

Your garden sounds lovely. There is something very appealing about a Japanese garden. We had a dry river bed with ferns, tree ferns etc in our old place in Auckland.
We don't have either Dicksonia or bamboo on our property here.
Our chooks aren't doing very well either, not getting many eggs at present.

I love the sound of a sub tropical orchard. What else do you grow there?

Hi Matron
At the moment we've just got some small banana plants which will hopefully start to fruit from next summer. There are quite a lot of subtropical plants we can put in, off the top of my head we're thinking of guavas, tamarillos, and casimiroa.
