2 Years of waiting

And finally my pineapple plants have fruit

Very proud of my pineapples, could have gotten them from around the shop a lot quicker tho

Another few months and will be ready to eat. Heres one of them.

Re: 2 Years of waiting

Only two years.

I've waited five years for my callistemon to get it's first brushes and they are only about one quarter full size.

Re: 2 Years of waiting

The pink one is called 'All Aglow' not so common and does not flower as easily as most. It's 2m high now.

I have a red one 'Captain Cook' that is 18 months old and only 0.5m high and the brushes are full size.

Not on mine yet.

There is a huge bottlebrush next door with yellow brushes and it gets lots of birds.
