Growing local

It's official - I suffer from an addiction.  I need to cut myself off from Daley's fruit nursery site.  I have just added to my growing fruit list

a) 10 x sugar baby and 10 x redlands joy strawberries

b) a red Muscadine grape (Noble) to match my green muscadine (adonis)

c) Keriberry to add to my raspberry collection (Heritage, bicentennial & atherton)

d) Walnut - Placentia.  Apparently low chill to fruit in subtropics.  This is on the "notify me" list.  This will also end up outside the yard in the park behind my place with the soshanii pecan

e) Low chill cherry tree - this I bought ages ago but still waiting on delivery (due jun/july)

To top matters off - I just recently discovered they have an advanced tree section.  Dammit - They have a mature Jaboticaba and Grumichama.  It would have been worth the extra money and the trip to the nursery for those if I hadn't already bought them.  I'm going to keep an eye out for a mature Jackfruit - the one tree I promised my husband we would grow.

Seriously people - I have NO space left.  What am I going to do?

Ha! There's always space for something! I know what you mean with Daley's. A couple of plants are not doing well and are about to be unceremoniously yanked and replaced. Ordered 2 more stone fruit. Prefer plants I don't have to wait forever for ;-\ but I will have to wait for these bare-rooted plants. I have pre-paid for a double-graft Cherry so hope they can all come together.

Btw, Daley's sell on eBay calling themselves Plants Australia.
