mm n, I know guavas, cos I lived in Cape Town for 40 years... So it's not guava.  I think it might be some kind of "bael fruit" - if it isnt the avocado family or mango family.   It's an odd one. Isn't it?  Thankyou for your interest & help - appreciated ????

seeking HELP !

please, is anybody able to help identify the fruits growing on this tree now in Thailand (growing prolifically in Hua Hiin - a 3 hour drive south of Bangkok)?  I think it looks likes an avocado?   tho I see no references to avocado growing there?  Mangoes are prolific there, but am not sure?  

Thankyou ????

Thankyou Fairygirl.

have replenished ericaceous soil, yes.

will it transplant into the ground?  And when could I do this?   I have very clay soil here.   If I dig a big hole & fill it with ericaceous soil, & replant it in this ground -  will that work? ( I mean, outside the ericaceous soil, will be the clay soil!) will replenishing by digging in ericaceous soil each year, work In a situation like this? What do you think ? 

Thankyou so much for your interest ???? appreciate it.

am hoping someone can advise me on a rhododendron plant I have had for 4 years.  It's always flowered, & been full of leaves, & been full of buds at this time of the year - ready for the next flowering season.

this year it has not flowered, has lost most of it's leaves, & is not budding ready for next year's flowering. It isn't thriving!  It is planted in a big clay pot, with ericacious soil. it is about a metre tall.  It stands close to a wooden fence.

i have a partner rhododendron plant in another pot, 2 years older, which IS thriving. It's an amazing plant, a prolific flowerer & it's full of buds for next year already. Btw, this plant stands under an oak tree right close to a wooden shed.

both plants are "properly pruned" at the correct time of year, are watered & fed regularly.

I need advice on how to nurse my "poorly rhododendron" back to health.

all contributions most welcome - 


thankyou ????
