Hi Lissa, I went to the Ecobotanica fruit tree course at Linda's house and she is growing them. I also saw them for sale from Daly's for a fairly reasonable price - I am keen to try a couple myself. Those and a jabotica and Daly's have both (sp?). Sorry, I don't know anyone else who has them. Jo
Ok, I've done it again- this is an old post! I'm blaming the iPhone. :)

Happy to have an old posting revived Jo :)

I have one growing at the moment in a large pot. It seems to be thriving. Dries out during the week and gets a water at the weekend and that seems to suit it. I really need to add more soil to the pot which means lifting the plant and the existing soil to add more underneath. A tricky maneuver at the best of times, so I've been putting it off.

Good to know that Linda has them. If I get desperate I might be able to get cuttings from her in the future.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
