    On a quick trip to Cape Town in 2017 we first noticed this compact, dwarf Natal Plum growing in several public landscape installations. Firstly, it was used to grow as a dense ground cover and secondly, it was grown as a low hedge. Carissa macrocarpa 'Green Carpet' has glossy emerald-green leaves and can be used across a range of landscapes from formal clipped gardens, to a spillover plant in coastal plantings. Tolerant of coastal conditions, poor soils and drought once established. A more robust looking plant will be achieved with regular irrigation. Fragrant white star-like flowers in Spring. Edible bright red fruit follow in Summer. Tolerant of mild frosts only. 30cm high x 150cm wide.

    Feijoa sellowiana

    Buy 1 for $12.00 / Buy 5 for $50.00

    For years we have marvelled at tightly clipped 'Pineapple Guava' hedges. The concept that a hedge can provide screening and protection and fruit is very appealing. Four years ago we decided to plant our own Feijoa hedge. It has proven to be not only all of the above but attractive as well. Dark green upper leaf surface and silvery lower surface has the hedges appearance changing with the breeze. The flowers are red and typically myrtle like and the fruit olive green with a pleasing fruit salad flavour. Fruit can be used to make ice cream, jam, smoothies or fresh. Tolerant of drought and frost. If left unpruned Feijoa will reach a height of 4m x 4m wide. Due to biosecurity reasons we can't send this plant to South Australia.
