P has, among other plants, a genoa black fig, a Nellie Kellie black passionfruit, vegetables, herbs and one of my favourites – the Leptospermum Petersonii or Lemon Tea Tree.
P’s leptospermums are more than 10 feet tall; completely dwarfing my sapling which is all of16 inches in height. Some may not fully appreciate the beauty of the plant; until they crush the leaves to release its essential oils. And when they do, my guess would be that they’d want a plant too. And there’s a bonus – the scented leaves of the Leptospermum Petersonii make a lovely fragrant tea.
P can enjoy a pot of it anytime she prunes her trees which are already flowering and setting seed.
My first attempt at planting the Leptospermum Petersonii seeds crashed and burned.
