Hi all I have 5 Coffee trees that i want to plant but would like some feed back as to where to put them.... The ground isnt all that great but can put goodies in the hole and fertilize which does bring the ground around .... I have a spot in mind in open sun...Water pipe runnng straight past replacing some crappy looking palms(not looked after much)...If I need them shaded I can put some shade cloth over them til they get bigger....

how much water and liquid fert will they need??

Cheers and thanks

Always good to replace crap palms....

But sorry not much help on the coffee, mine died... But you got me looking and this was an interesting article about growing coffee in Australia http://www.coffeehabitat.com/2008/03/coffee-growing/

Perhaps if you can get wallabies to eat the coffee beans, then collect the wallaby poo.... :wink: :thumbright:

The best position for a coffee tree is in the jaws of a wood chipper. They are classified as a weed tree here.
So much hassle getting a few beans prepared to use just not worth it, imo.
