This tree is about 7 years old and does not mind being kept below about 2m tall.

Lotte, you might want to check with Christopher Zane Hart (member) as he has just cut one down... not sure of the reasons though.

Very easy to grow and they seem to do well on neglect! I am not sure how big they grow, as I keep all my trees small so I can net them from the fruit fly and birds. Both love them. It makes it easier to pick the fruit too. Buy netting from Netpro in Stanthorp. They deliver and are quite cheap.

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.
