Macadamia trees are slow growing but can reach heights of 15m.
Their shiny dark green leaves can but a little tough and 'prickly' especially when dry but leaf fall is not really high.
Macadamia trees produce racemes of beautiful flower, delighting the local bee population, and these eventually turn into the mature nuts that we are all familiar with.
Macadamia's are not difficult to grow and, left alone, they do well by themselves.
They have the ability to adapt to quite poor soils and are generally known as being frost intolerant but the few frosts we have every winter do not seem to worry them at all.
Care is needed until they reach a height of 2m.
Our seeds are collected fresh and then aged in compost for 6-12 months before we release them for sale.
This is as close as we can get to providing stratified seed that is undamaged and ready to plant.
Our advice is to sow the seeds as soon as you get them.
Some potted plants are always available.
