Tuckeroo (Cupianopsis anacardioides) is a fast-growing tree that is suitable for warmer coastal areas. Shiny foliage, small greenish flowers are followed by pretty yellow-orange fruits.


How to grow tuckeroo in a garden

  1. Choose a place in the garden that gets full sun. Prepare the planting area well by digging in Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
  2. Dig the planting hole twice as wide and to the same depth as the root-ball.
  3. Carefully remove the plant from the pot disturbing the roots as little as possible.
  4. Position in hole and backfill with soil, gently firming down.  Form a raised or doughnut shaped ring of soil around the outer edge of the plant's root zone. This helps keep water where it's needed. Always water in well after planting to settle the soil around the roots and keep the soil moist for several weeks while the new plant establishes.
  5. Mulch with woodchip and water in well.
  6. Feed in autumn and spring with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser to promote strong root development, healthy leaf growth and lots of flowers.
