Because the lime is just growing so strongly. There’s some of the winter crop. Look at the trunk on there. As you can see, look at the leaves there, Brett! Very dark green. Limes here right through the year as well. Same as the Meyer lemon Look at the size of that. They’re big lemons aren’t they? They are. That’s surprising to have a fig at that
development. But, as you can see by the deep green of the leaves it is now a
very healthy plant. It produced some beautiful passionfruit this year. It really has benefited from the growth factor! I get a whole lot of new vine
running along the back of the house. So here we are with the famous Roy Kington. Ex merchant Navy a marine engineer and company director. And we’re about to walk
through Roy’s garden and see what he’s done with the unknown growth factor… this advanced fish emulsion and what he’s done with his 15 year old garden. This success story has only been in about three years it’s three years from a very small plant. There’s some of the winter crop and these are limes though that we can now pick and put in the drinks. Look at the trunk on there and it’s
growing hugely, a very fast grower. And yet, it’s re-fruiting as well. Re-fruiting yes. As you can see, look at the leaves there Brett. Very dark green and they’re definitely benefiting from the ‘Growth Factor’. And we’re getting limes here, right through the year as well, the same as the Meyer Lemon. What about your passionfruit vine Roy?
My passionfruit vine, I put a fair amount of that on there. It does really respond.
I put on some just in very early spring, make sure it’s well
watered in and then I do that about every other week about every fortnight
right through the growth period. As you can see Brett it produced some beautiful passionfruit this year. I mean, that’s still growing, and these will be ready for all those nice passionfruit sweets that you want in the summer. So that’s a very
early fruiter it really has benefited from the growth factor and then after it
drops the fruit I get a whole lot of new vine running along the back of the house. The other big success story Brett is my fig tree. This really struggled for a year
or two and I’ve got to plant it out again but as you can see this is a very early fig. That’s surprising to have a fig at that development you can see the smaller ones around but as you can see by the deep green of the leaves it’s now a very
healthy plant and I’ve got something like about 50 figs growing and the thing is
there’s nothing better Brett than cutting a fig off the tree for
breakfast in the morning there’s a completely different flavour
than the ones you buy in the shops. And I think the growth factor has been very beneficial to this one but now I’m I’m not putting heaps of the growth
factor in what I’m doing is just feeding a very diluted amount over a period of
time say once every couple of weeks. I just put a little bit more in and I got
another one here and as you can see it’s got very healthy growth this was a
pretty sick plant when I put it in a couple of weeks ago. Put some Growth Factor, soaked it in and now I’ve got about 10 figs starting to produce. And
that had been in the ground for two years and did nothing! I brought it out
got a bit of sunshine on it put some growth factor in – WOW it’s away. This is an avocado tree benefitted from the Growth Factor. It’s got beautiful green leaves
nice silky Green leaves, incredibly healthy plant he’s grown about 10 centimetres
all already this year Now one good thing about this is you
don’t have to be putting a lot of heavy insecticides on which you don’t want on
a fruit if you just put a very light spray of the unknown factor into this
you don’t seem to get the same bugs on there and certainly the stink bugs are
not back this year yet we’ve had one or two come but they’ve gone and obviously
whatever is in the growth factor is is they don’t like it, no doubt about that
they don’t like it. This is my pride and joy, this is my Meyer Lemon. This is in a bit of a microclimate here and we get lemons from this tree all the year round we have been spraying it with the growth
factor does reduce the amount of stink bug attack that we’ve been getting and
also fruit fly. So it is benefiting in some way as an insecticide. I wouldn’t
say a hundred percent but it certainly knocking back the early attacks and
reducing the incidences. So you’ve had a flush of lemons on this
already Roy oh yeah yeah. It’s re-fruiting again Yeah, re-fruiting again, so we have a few of these around and these are good for knocking off now and you can add them for drinks
or eating with fish. Here we don’t buy lemons we generally get this one running
all through the year. Look at the size of that up close. Yeah, looking good Roy. They’re big lemons aren’t they? They are. Quite full. It’s about 25th July (mid winter). And, I spray, I spray the lemons when the fruit fly came around August September. I sprayed him with a weak dilution of that I didn’t lose one lemon this year from
fruit fly. Not one. Year before I lost thirty percent. Right. And did you treat it with anything else, or just that stuff?… Nothing else, no, no. Yeah. It’s amazing you know. We do get that feedback from people… saying how how the fruit fly and other
pests just bugger off. Yep. If you liked this video please like subscribe, comment and share. Holy Mackerel ‘dere’…
