Post Flowers of the fruit - lots of photo's.
Wasn't sure flower or fruit catagory :) .

But after a wander around the garden this afternoon I'm looking forward to my first fruitful year.
Passionfruit - I think is one of the most stunning intricate of all fruit flowers.

2 Types of blueberry.

The Columnular apples are loaded with blossoms.
Image
Our new pear tree, planted bare rooted in the chook run last year, 3 clusters of blossoms not quite open yet.
Image

The Raspberries have loads of buds to, but not ready to bloom yet.

And I threw in this rose photo because it is just the most beautiful colour.

We haven't had fruit here since we had to cut down the old apricot tree 10 years ago.
If you have any tips to help me make sure I get the best of my crops please post here :sunny

That passionfruit flower is amazing!

I had never thought of blueberries haveing flowers they look so delicate and non- fruit like.

Looks like you at least will have something good to sample this summer - if you beat the kids to it :lol:

Beautiful photos - I had a wonderful passionfruit at our old house and it was everywhere - decided to prune it and I just about killed it!!
I am interested in your blueberries coz I don't know if ours are even alive yet - bought them barerooted and they have no shoots yet so you are a long way ahead!

I keep my blueberries in pots, and over late summer I move them half onto the verandah for some partial shelter/shade, and lots of pine needles around the base for fertilizer.
