    Howdy James,

    Great Idea...

    I just got four plants delivered from NSW from http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/ Im hoping to make a hedge out of them... the missus is an architect and shes happy with the way the foliage looks so Im going to order some more to get a nice big hedge that I can harvest from... probably taste awful, but itll keep me interested for a few years!

    Anyway, the guys at Dalys were very helpful and they also freighted it down to melbourne within about 5 days which was great!

    Good Luck with it all...

    Cheers! [smiley=beer.gif]

    Re: Where to get a coffee plant?

    For those that have fully grown coffee trees, now might be a good time to look around underneath them to see if any beanlings *;) have come up. *I recently got 4 seedlings from my mothers 2 (now 3) coffee trees this way.

    Ive asked her to harvest some berries for me, and Ill try my luck at propagation. *If I can propagate the 20 plants (only 16 to go) that I want, any excess will no doubt end up on here. *(Probably for a donation to Fair Crack + Postage?) *But dont hold your breath...

    Re: Where to get a coffee plant?

    Hi guys,
    Just checked out the daleys fruit site, they now send plants over to WA but with a fumigation cost (quarantine service) and freight , six plants which are only about $10 each will cost $150 in total. Apparently the freight carton is only aboy 30% full with six plants so if any others from Perth would like to perhaps go in with me, we may be able to reduce the cost per plant. I guess another 12 or so plants will fit in the carton. I am happy to pay the total upront cost. Let me know.
    Cheers
    James

    Have you checked out your local nurseries?

    I was lucky enough to get one at my local. They only had the one tree and it was with other exotic plants. I really didnt think they would have any, but there you go. It is now hiding from the frost under my palm trees.

    Theyre actually sweet Steve - not like regular cherries and really dont have a lot of flavour and not as much to eat, but yep, they are sweet.

    Re: Where to get a coffee plant?

    Id second trying local nurseries in your area if you cant find them go to your local Bunnings and ask their nursery to get them, they have them in QLD so they might be able to order them in for you. That way you will probably aviod the frieght cost as they will order other plants to make min order value.

    Thanks sarg,
    Ill try bunnings tomorrow. No real choice of other nurseries in the immediate area as bunnings has run the private operators out of business. (then jacked the prices up!)
    cheers.

    Re: Where to get a coffee plant?

    Theres other threads on this topic, have a gawk through the pages to find more info - but to save some time, heres the link to a nursery who does sell a few different varieties. Most places only sell one type of coffee.

    Rolley, I think James was looking for somewhere over in WA; Fumigation costs making the price too high to get them from Daleys.

    James, have you had any luck with Bunnings?

    Re: Where to get a coffee plant?

    Hi there James,
    Where abouts in perth are you located? I am in Bicton, and I am pretty sure I have one or 2 seedlings under my small tree, if not, definitly have some seeds off the tree, not sure if they will ever be "Drinkable" but its a coffe plant.

    I saw some coffee plants at Wandilla Nursery , which is on Welshpool Rd east in Orange Grove. They were about 40cm tall and $55 each (and all sold at that time, which was several months ago). If you do an order from Daleys let me know and I will chip in for a few. (*edit - wow, old thread, still getting used to the new date stamp system )

    This is really interesting. I had a look at the Daleys site (thanks Rolley).
    A dear friend who lives on a sand island in C.Q. was telling me last time we visited that she had a "coffee tree" and looked forward to drinking a crop in the future.
    Even though she is an awesome gardener I mentally shuddered at this with the thought of a crop of rough-as-guts Robusta, but after seeing the Daleys site it may well be that she has a good variety planted that will produce something drinkable. I will show a bit more interest in future.
